Call: GoodIT 2022
ACM International Conference on Information Technology for Social Good
7–9 September, 2022, 5* St. Raphael Resort & Marina, Limassol, Cyprus
The ACM GoodIT conference seeks papers describing significant research
contributions related to the application of information technologies (IT) to social good. Social good is typically defined as something that provides a benefit to the general public. In this context, clean air and water, Internet connection, education, and healthcare are all good examples of social goods. However, new media innovations and the explosion of online communities have added new meaning to the term. Social good is now about global citizens uniting to unlock the potential of individuals, technology, and collaboration to create a positive societal impact.
GoodIT solicits papers that address important research challenges related to, but not limited to:
• Citizen science
• Civic intelligence
• Decentralized approaches to IT
• Digital solutions for Cultural Heritage
• Environmental monitoring
• Ethical computing
• Frugal solutions for IT
• Game, entertainment, and multimedia applications
• Health and social care
• IT for automotive
• IT for development
• IT for education
• T for smart living
• Privacy, trust and ethical issues in ICT solutions
• Smart governance and e-administration
• Social informatics
• Socially responsible IT solutions
• Sustainable cities and transportation
• Sustainable IT
• Technology addressing the digital divide
Main Track Paper Submission
The papers should not exceed six (6) pages (US letter size) double-column,
including figures, tables, and references in standard ACM format
They must be original works and must not have been previously published.
At least one of the authors of all accepted papers must register and present the work at the conference; otherwise, the paper will not be published in the proceedings. All accepted and presented papers will be included in the conference proceedings published in the ACM Digital Library.
Special journal issues will be organised where the best accepted papers will be invited to submit extended versions.
Separate call-for-papers will be announced for the special tracks (more information will be available on the conference web site).
Work-in-Progress and PhD Track
Inside ACM GoodIT, the Work-in-Progress and PhD Track provides an opportunity to showcase interesting new work that is still at an early stage. We encourage practitioners and researchers to submit to the Work-in-Progress venue as it provides a unique opportunity for sharing valuable ideas, eliciting feedback on early-stage work, and fostering discussions and collaborations among colleagues. Moreover, this track provides a platform for PhD students to present and receive feedback on their ongoing research. Students at different stages of their research will have the
opportunity to present and discuss their research questions, goals, methods and results. This is an opportunity to obtain guidance on various aspects of their research from established researchers and other PhD students working in research areas related to technologies for social good.
Important: For this specific track, papers must not exceed four (4) pages
(US letter size) double column, including figures, tables, and references in standard
ACM format (https://cyprusconferences.org/goodit2022/index.php/authors/).
