GoodIT 2021: ACM International Conference on Information Technology for Social Good
9-11 September 2021, Rome, Italy
Accepted papers will be included in the ACM Digital Library.
Special issues associated with the conference are being organized. Selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version to those journals.
The conference will focus 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.
