Computing For Sustainability (CFS)

Motivation and Objectives

This session aims to provide a transdisciplinary venue for bringing computational methods to bear on understanding the foundations and solving problems in social, life and engineering sciences, related to the stability and resilience of our planet's ecosphere and managing of local and global goods, including all its complex, dynamic and self-regulatory natural and human processes. Contributions that are explicitly aimed at understanding and helping solve global emergency issues such as climate change, biodiversity loss, pollution and degradation of life-supporting resources, and in improving Human well-being at local and global scales, cooperation, decision-making and the interactions between human, environmental, and engineered systems are particularly encouraged. Research aiming at the development of new computational or mathematical tools for natural and social sciences, including the integration of techniques from different fields, is also of great interest.

We believe that this event will promote a nation-based synergy between researchers that work on different application fields of computer science and engineering for studying planetary life sustainability, by facilitating their acquaintance with other computational tools and methods that can be used. Furthermore, it will inspire computer scientists and engineers to reflect on how they can strive to apply the domains in which they are specialists to contribute more directly towards common and urgent goals in social and life sciences, and to find collaborators for putting this into practice.
