We're building a community of COVID researchers who can collaborate on cutting-edge science, encourage resilience, and attack the next pandemic head on.

The focus of the SBEG workshop is on understanding new issues in social, behavioral, economic, and governance which have arisen from the pandemic, and which can be addressed by novel datasets and computing tools. We have four planned sessions: misinformation, equity, governance, and behavioral models. Join us via livestream on our YouTube channel!

The goal of the workshop is to bring together the pandemic research community, discuss the challenges and opportunities associated with access, creation, and maintenance of data and computing resources for pandemic research, and foster collaborations for future research. The workshop will feature speakers from academia, industry, and government to share their perspectives as data providers, data consumers (domain researchers, health agencies/operations), and data researchers (infrastructure, privacy, security, and ethics). The expected outcome is a better understanding from the community and a workshop report that contributes to the research roadmap of PREPARE.

Synchronous sessions (1~2 hours for each session) will feature keynote talk(s) and panel(s). Asynchronous discussion sessions will continue on YouTube after the synchronous sessions. 
 

Our first workshop was a great success, thanks to the enthusiastic participation of researchers from around the US. View our Summary Report to learn more!
