Call for Main Track Papers


The 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, clean 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
