Data Challenge

Colocated with NetMob 2024, we are launching the NetMob 2024 Data Challenge. The NetMob 2024 Data Challenge seeks to foster competition centered on extracting and utilizing insights from mobility data. Beyond academic progress, the goal of this year’s challenge is to cultivate a global environment where enthusiasm for analyzing mobility data can thrive alongside practical development objectives. Specifically, it targets countries in the Global South, aligning with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Challenge format

  • Selected participants will be invited to submit by 16 September a final report consisting of: a complete document without page limits that will be kept confidential, and used to select the challenge awardees as well as to take a final decision on whether the work will be presented at the conference as a talk or a poster; and, 2-page summary of the work that will appear in the public NetMob 2024 Book of Abstracts.
