Abstract: This presentation will be an overview of a NSF-funded research project about protecting quality of life for residents of small and shrinking communities in Iowa. Funded as part of the Smart & Connected Communities initiative at NSF, this project brings together Iowa State and Louisiana State researchers in Architecture, Computer Science, Community and Regional Planning, Sociology, and Sustainable Environments. The project combines data science with design and social science methodologies, as well as community engagement processes, to create an innovative interdisciplinary research framework that can be a model for future projects.
