ACM International Conference on Information Technology for Social Good

(GoodIT 2022)

 

7–9 September, 2022, 5* St. Raphael Resort & Marina, Limassol, Cyprus

 

https://cyprusconferences.org/goodit2022/

 

 

Scope

 

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

 

 

Special Tracks Proposals

 

GoodIT 2022 will feature special tracks whose aim is to focus on a specific topic of

interest related to the overall scope of the conference. We solicit proposals for special 

tracks to be held within the main conference and whose publications will be included

in the conference proceedings. Tracks proposals can focus on any contemporary 

themes that highlight social good aspects in the design, implementation,

deployment, securing, and evaluation of IT technologies.  

 

Special Track Proposal Format

A special track proposal must contain the following information:

• Title of the special track.

• The names of the organizers (indicatively, two) with affiliations, contact

information, and a single paragraph of a brief bio.

• A short description of the scope and topics of the track (max 1/2 page) and a brief

explanation of: (1) why the topic is timely and important; (2) why the topic is related 

to the conference’s main theme; (3) why the track may attract a significant number of

submissions of good quality.

• Indication if a journal special issue is associated with the track, possibly with 

information on the process of selecting papers.

• The plan to disseminate the call for papers of the special track for achieving a 

reasonable number of paper submissions (a list of emailing lists will help).

• A tentative Program Committee list.

• A draft Call for Papers (max 1 page).

 

Publication

Papers submitted to each particular track have to satisfy the same criteria as for the 

main conference. They must be original works and must not have been previously 

published. They have to be peer-reviewed by the track's Program Committee (at least

three reviews per submitted paper are required). The final version of papers must 

follow the formatting instructions of the main conference

(https://cyprusconferences.org/goodit2022...). 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. The special track may provide an option for publishing extended

versions of selected papers in a special issue of a journal.  

 

Special Track Proposal Submission Guidelines

Special track proposals should be submitted as a single PDF file to the special track 

Chairs (see below) via email  to: ombretta.gaggi@unipd.it, valentino.vranic@stuba.sk, 

and rysavy@fit.vut.cz. The subject of the e-mail must be: “GoodIT 2022 – special

track proposal”. The special track chairs may ask proposers for supplying additional 

information during the review period. 

 

 

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

(https://cyprusconferences.org/goodit2022...).

 

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...).
