2022 Proceedings of the 28th ACM SIGKDD Conference on Knowledge Discovery and Data Mining  
Similar to previous iterations, the epiDAMIK @ KDD workshop is a forum to promote data driven approaches in epidemiology and public health research. Even after the devastating impact of COVID-19 pandemic, data driven approaches are not as widely studied in epidemiology, as they are in other spaces. We aim to promote and raise the profile of the emerging research area of data-driven and computational epidemiology, and create a venue for presenting stateof-the-art and in-progress results-in
