The workshop on Data Science for Social Good (SoGood 2016) will take place in Riva del Garda, Italy, associated to ECML PKDD 2016, September 19th, 2016.

The workshop intends to attract papers on how Data Science can and does contribute to social good in its widest sense, including areas such as 
  • Public safety and disaster relief
  • Access to food, water, and utilities
  • Efficiency and sustainability
  • Government transparency
  • Data journalism
  • Economic development
  • Education
  • Social services
  • Healthcare
We are interested both in non-profit projects and in projects that, that while not defined as non-profit, still have social good as their main focus, and so have managed to build a sustainable business model.
