*** Third Call for Contributions ***

ACM International Conference on Information Technology for Social Good
(GoodIT 2022)

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
• IT 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work at the conference; otherwise, the paper will not be published in the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.

Selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to a special issue
in the journal MDPI Sensors, where the theme of the special issue will be
"Application of Information Technology (IT) to Social Good"
Specifically 5 papers will be invited free of charge and another 5 papers will get a
20% discount on the publication fees.

Furthermore, MDPI Sensors will sponsor a Best Paper Award with the amount of
400 CHF.

Separate call-for-papers are announced for the special tracks (more information
is 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/).
