This conference has been withdrawn from the 2020 conference schedule
As you are aware, coronavirus is having a global impact and the World Health Organization and the Centers for Disease Control have instituted recommendations that include social distancing and cancelling conferences and large gatherings. Since safety of our attendees is always GRC's highest priority, the GRC Board of Trustees has decided to withdraw this conference and it will be rescheduled for 2022. This decision was made out of an abundance of caution and to alleviate the concerns of our conference communities that are scheduled to meet in this timeframe.
New ways of accessing and analyzing data from diverse sources – ranging from satellite data, metabolic data, consumer surveys, health data, cell phones, social media and citizen science engagements – are transforming both industrial ecology and sustainable systems science. This GRC will explore cutting edge innovations in data and data science as they impact: 1) Core industrial ecology methods (i.e., material flow analysis, input-output analysis, life cycle assessment, and industrial symbiosis), and, 2) Our understanding of key provisioning systems (mobility, food, energy, water and cyber), as they shape multiple sustainable development goals related to the environment, human well-being, equity and resilience. Data science advancements will include data science methodological innovations as well as the science of co-producing data, knowledge and insights among researchers and communities of practice, essential for linking research with policy and action for a sustainable society.
