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
• 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
The papers should not exceed eleven (11) pages single-column, including figures,
tables, and references in the new ACM format

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 nine (9) pages
single column, including figures, tables, and references in the new
ACM format (https://cyprusconferences.org/goodit2022/index.php/authors/ ).
All papers must be submitted electronically via the hotcrp web site
(https://goodit2022.hotcrp.com ). Once on the submission page, you will be able to
select the track where to submit your paper.
