Call for papers for Data Mining and AI For Conservation Workshop at KDD2019

Hi everyone! If of interest, KDD2019 will be hosting a workshop on Data Mining and AI for Conservation and have opened a call for papers.

The workshop will be held on August 5th, and per their description:

This workshop will focus on how data mining and AI can inform conservation efforts from theory to practice, and from understanding the underlying processes and dynamics to making effective decisions and setting policies. There are increasingly large amounts of data relevant to conservation, including sensor data such as GPS trajectories from collars on animals, camera trap photos, crowdsourced photos and observations, and imagery from UAVs and satellites, DNA samples, as well as geospatial data and data generated by climate models.

In this workshop, we plan to bring together researchers in the computational areas of mining images and text, network science, machine learning, planning and optimization, and vision, as well as researchers interested in applications related to climate, environment, ecology and wildlife conservation.
