There are a number of events this summer for researchers in Computational Sustainability to meet and share their ideas. Here are just a few I’m aware of, if you know of other meetings or related events let us know in the comments!
The Twenty-Seventh AAAI Conference on Artificial Intelligence (AAAI-13) will be held July 14–18, 2013 in Bellevue, Washington, USA. This is a top AI conference and once again there will be a specialized track on topics in Computational Sustainability, see the accepted papers from that track here.
The Twenty-Third International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence August 3-9, 2013 in Beijing, China. This year’s IJCAI also has a special track on CompSust, you can see those and all the papers here, titles only so far.
Future Posts – Conference Paper Summaries
We’re going to be inviting some authors from upcoming conferences to write a post for the blog explaining their work to be posted in the near future. If you have a paper at this year’s AAAI or IJCAI and are willing to write a post get in touch with me firstname.lastname@example.org. The idea is to have high level descriptions of some of the variety and depth of research going on at the intersections of computation, ecology, optimization, sustainability and machine learning. Hopefully, the writeups can be short and understandable by the general public while providing a enough information for experts to get the general idea of the approach being used. Pretty pictures and real world examples encouraged!
Google+ is really becoming an online home for many scientific communities. Two of the largest Community groups are general science based both with over 80,000 people sharing news and talking about science. One of them recently had an interesting live video forum with Al Gore about climate change. There are also other more focussed groups that are very relevant to our community and regularly have fascinating content: BioCultural Landscapes & Seascapes, Citizen Science Projects and Machine Learning for example. Our own CompSust G+ community is small but we haven’t had a lot of content. So, if you are on G+ and find interesting stories or have updates and thoughts on your own research I encourage you to share it to our community or to share links to groups you find useful.
