Computational Sustainability (CompSus) Track


Computational Sustainability aims to apply computational techniques to
the balancing of environmental, economic, and societal needs, in order
to support sustainable development and a sustainable future. Research
in computational sustainability is inherently interdisciplinary: It
brings together computational sciences and other fields such as
environmental sciences, biology, economics, and sociology. AI
techniques and methodologies can be instrumental in addressing
sustainability problems and questions, for example to increase the
efficiency and effectiveness of the way we manage and allocate our
natural and societal resources. This will also enrich and transform
AI, by providing new challenges.
Sustainability domains include the following:

- Natural resources and the environment (such as water, atmosphere,
oceans, forest, land, etc.)
- Economics and human behavior (such as well-being, poverty, diseases,
over-population, etc.)
- Energy resources (for example, renewable energy, smart grid, and so on.)
- Human-built systems and land use (such as transportation, cities,
buildings, agriculture, etc.)
- Climate (such as climate prediction, impact of and on climate, etc.)

This special track is dedicated to papers concerned with innovative
notions, models, algorithms, techniques, methodologies, and systems,
in order to address problems in computational sustainability. Papers
can range from formal analysis to applied research. Papers describing
interesting sustainability problems and data sets, or papers proposing
general challenges and competitions for computational sustainability,
are also welcome.
The CompSust track welcomes three types of articles:

- Technical papers, showing how AI can be instrumental in addressing
sustainability questions;
- Emerging computational sustainability applications
- Data challenge papers providing the description of a new
sustainability problem as well as the corresponding data set to be
made available to the AI community.

Technical papers must follow the instructions given in the general
call for technical conference papers. Dataset papers should be no
longer than four pages in length, included figures and references.
Please indicate that your paper is a dataset paper or an emerging
application paper by selecting this paper type in the submission site.

IJCAI2015 Computational Sustainability Awards:

IJCAI 2015 is joining with the Institute for Computational
Sustainability (ICS) to promote work at the intersection of computing
and sustainability on principles and applications that address
environmental, economic, and societal needs in support of a
sustainable future. A 2015 Computational Sustainability Track
committee will select outstanding papers in this area to receive ICS
travel awards to the authors of the IJCAI/CS Track 2015 CompSust Track
Outstanding papers (Regular and Student award).
