IJCAI workshop on Artificial Intelligence and the UNESCO Sustainable Development Goals


Towards building a network of AI researchers across regions to address how AI could contribute to the UNESCO SDGs

August 10-12, 2019 Macao, P.R. China

IJCAI International Joint Conferences on Artificial Intelligence

Knowledge 4 All Foundation and UNESCO Chairs are organizing a 1-day workshop for experts in Artificial Intelligence addressing scalable solutions or exemplars for SDGs with an emphasis on creating potential sub-networks of researchers around each of the 17 United Nations SDGs.

The goal of the workshop is to provide a forum for researchers involved in the SDGs, allowing new researchers to get involved in these essential topics and increase the visibility of actions already under way. The workshop should act as an important stepping stone towards building an AI roadmap for SDGs, including designing a viable plan for cross-continent cooperation.

We solicit three categories of papers: research papers, on-going work papers, and position/vision papers.

  • Research papers present use cases of AI for the SDGs. They may present platforms or systems or in-the-field projects; they may require the development of novel AI tools.
  • On-going work may cover any aspect of the development of new AI tools and methodologies to address SDGs. In this case the project or action may not be terminated, and, especially in those cases where the expected impact is long-term, the evaluation may be incomplete.
  • Position/Vision papers may concern untouched challenges or the use of technologies which up to now have not been tested on the ground.

Topics should address (at least some of) the UN Sustainable Development Goals:

  • Goal 1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere
  • Goal 2: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture
  • Goal 3: Ensure healthy lives and promote well-being for all at all ages
  • Goal 4: Ensure inclusive and quality education for all and promote lifelong learning
  • Goal 5: Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
  • Goal 6: Ensure access to water and sanitation for all
  • Goal 7: Ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all
  • Goal 8: Promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, employment and decent work for all
  • Goal 9: Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialization and foster innovation
  • Goal 10: Reduce inequality within and among countries
  • Goal 11: Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable
  • Goal 12: Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns
  • Goal 13: Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts
  • Goal 14: Conserve and sustainably use the oceans, seas and marine resources
  • Goal 15: Sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, halt biodiversity loss
  • Goal 16: Promote just, peaceful and inclusive societies
  • Goal 17: Revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development

All papers should be a maximum 6 pages in length. Position papers can be shorter (2 pages). One additional page of cited references is allowed. You may also attach full papers of any format or length that supplement your submission, but we do not guarantee to take these into account in the reviewing process. You may submit work that has previously been published — but please give details of how it has previously been published. Our review process will not be blind: please submit your contributions as PDFs containing the authors’ names.

In order to encourage participation from as many regions as possible conditional submissions are possible: the authors may send in their contribution even if the financial backing necessary to attend the conference is not yet secured. The organizers may help to find sponsors.

Submission is via http://easychair/AISDG

We intend to make accepted contributions available online, linked to the workshop page. There will be no formal published proceedings.
