extended) ===

GoodIT 2021 will feature special tracks whose aim is to focus on a 
specific topic of interest for the overall scope of the conference.

not have been previously published. They have to be peer-reviewed by its 
own program committee (at least 3 reviews per submitted paper is 
required). The paper format must follow the one of the main conference 
(http://www.grc.upv.es/goodit2021/authors/). At least one of the 
authors' of all accepted papers must register and present the work at 
the conference. All accepted and presented papers will be included in 
the ACM Digital Library.
