International Workshop on Putting Sustainability into Convergence: Connecting Data, People, and Systems, Singapore, January 28-29, 2019

From the website: https://www.shbe.org/singapore-workshop.html

The NSF-funded Research Coordination Network (RCN) in Science, Engineering and Education for Sustainability (SEES) announces its second international workshop on Putting Sustainability into Convergence: Connecting Data, People, and Systems with a special focus on social science, engineering and computer science integration. Long-term sustainability requires technology advancements, resilient infrastructure, adequate policy, and behavioral change. The main objective of a sustainable and resilient infrastructure is where a multitude of resources can be dynamically shared and individual behavior be incentivized to better meet community needs. While focusing on underserved groups, the intention is to improve overall quality of life and well-being by providing adequate access to infrastructure and services. Inspired by the NSF vision, this international workshop proposes convergence research that is built upon trans-, inter-, and multi-disciplinary concepts including two main characteristics: Challenges and opportunities from deep scientific questions and critical societal needs, and intensive integration across disciplines.
