Dear Cerciras Community members,

This is a conference we believe clearly intersects the interests of our
action, and it would be great to receive your contributions and
Please note that in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference

On behalf of the Organizing Committee,
With best regards,

13–17 June 2022 | Plovdiv, Bulgaria
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the conference will be held in a
hybrid form: in person at the University of Plovdiv and virtually
through the means of synchronous communication.
The International Conference on Information and Communications
Technology for Sustainability (ICT4S) is the premier international
conference aiming at bringing together leading researchers in ICT for
Sustainability with government, industry and community representatives,
including decision-makers and end-users with an interest in using ICT
for sustainability, researchers focusing on ICT effects on
sustainability and developers of sustainable ICT systems or
applications. ICT4S is devoted to covering all types of research,
developments and applications of ICT to support sustainability. In this
context, there are still numerous problems to be addressed that require
collaborative research across multiple disciplines.
To provide a broader forum for reporting on scientific progress as well
as practical experiences on ICT for sustainability, ICT4S 2022 invites
submissions (Research Paper track) that range from well-founded
technical papers, to exploratory, empirical and application papers.
Papers recently published in related journals (Journal-first Paper
track) are also welcome. Details of the different tracks are below:
ICT4S 2022 will have the proceedings published by Conference Publishing
Services (CPS). Accepted submissions will be submitted to IEEE Xplore
and the IEEE Computer Society Digital Library. Content will be
submitted to the indexing companies for possible indexing. Indexing
services are independent organizations, and CPS cannot guarantee that
any particular abstract or index entry will be included in Ei Compendex
or any other indexing service.[a]
We welcome original papers reporting on research, development, case
studies, and experience and empirical reports in the field of ICT4S.
The following type of papers are possible:
ICT4S 2022 will follow a double-blind review process. The manuscripts
should be submitted for review anonymously (i.e., without listing the
author’s names on the paper) and references to own work should be made
in the third person.
All submitted papers will be reviewed by three members of the program
committee. Papers will be evaluated (in accordance with their type)
based on their novelty, significance, soundness, reproducibility,
evaluation, quality of presentation and appropriate comparison to
related work, and general presentation of the overall contribution.
Since the ICT4S conference is also a place where researchers and
practitioners can exchange personal perspectives on values and impact,
particular attention will be given to the explicit description and the
significance of how the work has or would positively impact any aspect
of sustainability of the environment, society or economy.
Authors of recently published journal papers are invited to present
their work at ICT4S 2022, therefore providing an opportunity for the
authors to engage directly with the community and offering the
attendees an additional dimension to the conference program.
Journal First papers should relate to ICT4S and describe original
results that have not been presented at a conference. Papers that are
extensions of previous conference papers are not eligible. For a
journal paper to be eligible to participate, the paper must be: in
scope of the conference (see the conference topics), accepted in one of
the following journals (if you would like us to consider a paper
published in another journal of equal reputation to those presented in
the list, please contact the Program Chairs), and accepted for
publication after January 1st, 2021 and before December 31st, 2021.
List of considered journals: T-SUSC, SUSCOM, Technol. Forecast. Soc.
Change, Solutions, JSS, IST, GMD, JSDTL, Telematics and Informatics,
STS, FGCS, EIA Review, IEEE Series on Green Communications and
Computing Networks, INFOGG, Journal of Cleaner Production, JSME,
Renewable and Sustainable Energy Reviews, Applied Energy, Energy
Policy, TSE, TOSEM, Environ. Model. Softw., IEEE Software, IEEE
Computer, CACM, SoSyM, ASE, JOT, IJSEKE, IJCTT, IJSE, CSRD, JIIS.
Authors will be invited to present their journal paper at ICT4S 2022
after a check that the paper satisfies the criteria listed above. Since
the papers have already been reviewed and accepted by the respective
journals, they will not be reviewed again for their technical content.
In case an exceptionally high number of submissions is received, we may
not be able to select all papers. In this case, priority will be given
to the papers with authors that have no (or fewer) papers accepted at
other ICT4S tracks. If we still need to select from papers with the
same priority, we will choose papers that best fit the technical
program, offering a balance across the conference topics.
ICT4S 2022 seeks submissions to one of the proposed tracks (research
papers and journal-first papers) on diverse topics related to ICT for
sustainability, including, but not limited to:
