2022 Doctoral Consortium on Computational Sustainability

The CompSust Doctoral Consortium (DC) 2022 focuses on computational methods for balancing environmental, economic, and societal needs for a sustainable future. The main goals of CompSust DC 2022 are to:

  • Promote discussion and collaboration among students and researchers,
  • Give participants a chance to hear about relevant computational techniques and how they are applied in sustainability applications, and
  • Provide students and junior researchers opportunities to present their own work and get feedback.

Through tutorials, panels, discussions, and poster sessions, the program will investigate the major problem domains that impact global sustainability and the fundamental computational methods that support advances in these domains.

Topics: computational sustainability, AI for social good, sustainable development

Dates: March 11–12, 2022

Location: Virtual

  • Practice presenting your work.

Apply to attend the Doctoral Consortium

Applications should be made through the submission website:

We welcome work from any field in computer science, with applications to topics related to computational sustainability. To present a talk or poster at the CompSust DC, please submit:

  1. A two-page abstract of your work (with an additional page only for references).
  2. An additional one-page document containing:
    1. A paragraph of interest indicating why you want to attend CompSust DC.
    2. Preference over presenting a long talk (15 minutes) or a short talk (10 minutes).
  3. Your CV.

We also invite participants to apply to present tutorials. We are interested in technical tutorials that go in-depth in an area with potential applications to issues in sustainability. If you are interested, please submit a one-paragraph description of your tutorial presentation idea describing topics covered and potential applications along with your CV.
