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

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


ACM GoodIT focuses on the application of IT technologies to social good. Social good is typically defined as an action that provides some sort of benefit to the general public. In this case, 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 positive societal impact.

GoodIT topics include but not limited to:

+ IT for education
+ Data Science
+ Digital solutions for Cultural Heritage
+ Data sensing, processing, and persistency
+ Game, entertainment, and multimedia applications
+ Health and social care
+ IT for development
+ Privacy and trust issues and solutions
+ Sustainable cities and transportation
+ Smart governance and e-administration
+ IT for smart living
+ Technology addressing the digital divide
+ IT for automotive
+ Frugal solutions for IT
+ Ethical computing
+ Decentralized approaches to IT
+ Citizen science
+ Socially responsible IT solutions
+ Sustainable IT
+ Social informatics
+ Civic intelligence

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).


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 ( 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.
