Theory Guided Data Science to Enhance Scientific Discovery
Call for Papers
We are excited to announce the Fragile Earth workshop at KDD ’18 in London on August 19th. FEED ’18 will bring together the research, industry, and policy community around enhancing scientific discovery in the earth sciences through the joint use of data, theory, and computation. Whether it is food security, water scarsity, energy use, climate models, or the incorporation of theoretical thinking into data driven frameworks of scientific discovery, and related areas, we invite you to be part of the community!
Fragile Earth invites full papers, working papers, and position papers/abstracts on the following areas:
- Paradigms for enhancing scientific discovery through theory guided data science.
- Empirical investigations at the intersection of the earth sciences/sustainability and data.
- Data-informed Food/Energy/Water/Earth Sciences policy discussions.
- Frameworks for helping the scientific and KDD communities to work together
Accepted papers will be allocated to three themed sessions and a poster session. We expect presentations to last 15-20 minutes (including questions), and will prioritize submissions based on relevance, scientific rigour, and potential for societal impact.
- Workshop paper submissions: May 8, 2018, 11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time
- Workshop paper notifications: June 8, 2018, 11:59 PM Pacific Standard Time
- Workshop date: August 19, 2018
