Call for contributions on ICT for sustainability

Posted by n.chuehong on 9 October 2017 - 11:51am

The ICT4S conferences bring together leading researchers in ICT for Sustainability with government and industry representatives, including decision-makers with an interest in using ICT for sustainability, researchers focusing on ICT effects on sustainability and developers of sustainable ICT systems or applications.

The theme of the 2018 conference, to be held on May 14-18, 2018 in Toronto, is “Thriving Communities”. The transformational power of ICT is essential to put our society on the path to sustainability. This potential could embrace all levels, from individuals to communities, from public sector to all industry sectors, from business goals to social aspirations and environmental objectives. ICT can bring people together to build thriving, resilient communities.

Papers relating to ICT for sustainability in a broad sense and papers developing this year’s theme (and beyond) are welcome, along with workshop proposals of traditional or unconventional formats for half-day or full-day workshops and submissions of high-quality extended abstracts for posters presenting late-breaking research or work in progress. Instructions for all types of submissions can also be found at the conference website.
