ICT4S 2020 WORKSHOPS (DEADLINES EXTENDED)
We invite workshop proposals of traditional or unconventional formats for evening, half-day or full-day workshops. Workshops are to be held on Monday, June 22, and Friday, June 26, 2020. Other slots during the main conference period may also be available.
The workshops at ICT4S 2020 look to facilitate the exchange of new ideas and directions in all areas related to sustainability and digital technology. A variety of formats are welcome and will be considered, ranging from traditional research paper presentations to interactive and participatory sessions. Given the urgency of the climate crisis we invite proposals that cover controversial viewpoints, national and global public policy interventions, emerging technology drivers or transformative ideas aimed at changing basic assumptions.
At ICT4S 2020 we are facilitating two kinds of workshop:
- 1) Formal Workshops - workshops looking to establish annual gatherings and publish proceedings associated to topics covered by ICT4S. These workshops will include a full peer review process for workshop submissions (facilitated by the workshop organisers). Position papers submitted to the workshop will be published in adjunct proceedings of the ICT4S proceedings.
- 2) Community Workshops - workshops for community building and passionate discussion in emerging topics relating to ICT4S. These workshops may also draw in a wider audience and we welcome proposals from community, business and local government that might help start a dialogue to develop solutions.
Details of what should be addressed in the proposal are as follows:
Formal workshop proposals should be between 4-6 pages long and include:
Community workshop proposals should be between 2-4 pages long and include:
Submissions to formal workshops should follow these templates for their inclusion in the ICT4S2020 programme.
