Call For Papers

The SDSM is one of the selected challenges at the 2024 IEEE International Conference on Big Data (IEEE BigData 2024), December 15-18, Washington DC, USA.

In the midst of the digital era, social media has emerged as a rich source of insights into human behavior and mental health. Now, the IEEE BigData 2024 Cup Challenge presents a unique platform for participants to apply innovative machine learning techniques to address a critical societal challenge -- suicidal risk detection.

Step into the world of big data, participants will access a curated dataset containing anonymized social media posts retrieved from the r/SuicideWatch subreddit (N = 500 posts with suicide risk labels and N = 1500 unlabelled posts).

Develop robust machine learning models capable of accurately identifying the corresponding suicide risk level of the posts based on the nuanced suicidal signals discerning from the contents.

Prizes & Rewards:
Participants will be awarded:
a). certificates (for all participants); b). cash prizes (top three performers); and c). presentation at the lEEE BigData 2024 conference (Dec 15-18, 2024, in Washington DC, USA) & publication in the conference proceedings (top three performers).

By diving into this rich dataset, participants can not only showcase their technical prowess but also contribute directly to suicide prevention and life-saving advancements in society. Together, let's leverage the power of big data to illuminate pathways toward a bright future!
