Dear QS Community,
If you are interested in good mental health, please see below for a special invitation to share and discuss your experiences, practices, and tools around designing digitally assisted systems for good mental health.
The world is experiencing a mental health crisis that is need of immediate attention. Globally, governments, clinical institutions, and technology companies are starting to respond to this broadly escalating need. We are at the dawn of technology supporting good self-care and other-care, and there is a huge opportunity for the research, design, and deployment of AI/ML-assisted systems to improve good mental health at scale. This is an especially potent time to contribute to this conversation, given our shared global health and safety concerns.
The purpose of this workshop is to bring together industrial and academic experts and researchers and field practitioners to elucidate problems, solutions, and paths forward. We invite short papers (anywhere from 2-4 pages + citations) that speak to the topic of designing digitally assisted systems for good mental health. Some topics that the papers may cover may be found in our call for papers. Papers can be submitted here through May 25, 2020.
The workshop will be held on August 24, 2020. KDD organizers will keep us updated on whether the conference will be virtual. To facilitate connection ahead of the workshop date, we have set up a Slack channel for all potential participants (authors or otherwise), which you may join here.
Please feel free to extend this invitation to others. We look forward to your contributions and participation in our community!
