ACM International Conference on Information Technology for Social Good (GoodIT 2021)


9-11 September 2021, Rome, Italy

Roma

COVID-19 information

We do hope that it will be possible to celebrate the conference in Rome. Rome in September welcomes the end of the summer and this means beautiful weather, lovely sightseeing opportunities and glorious dinners out, with only that touch of chillier temperatures that make the city pleasant rather than oppressively hot like in August.

Nevertheless, in view of the possible travel restrictions, the conference will be held in the form of a hybrid conference with as many authors and participants as possible attending the conference in Rome in person, and others attending remotely. The technical program will include physical sessions with on-site presentations and virtual (on-line) sessions for remote participants.

More details in the next weeks.

Scope

GoodIT 2021 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.
