The 2nd International Conference on ICT for Sustainability took place in Stockholm August 24-27, 2014. The conference was organized by KTH Royal Institute of Technology in cooperation with VU University Amsterdam.
Mattias Höjer (general chair), Patricia Lago and Josefin Wangel (program chairs) would like to thank all participants, contributors and the organizing team for a great conference!
ICT4S 2014 hosted 150 participants (200 including workshops) from 34 countries of which 18 from non-European countries.
Peter Woodward led us professionally and with splendid British humor through the conference. See his farewell address recorded at the end of the conference.
49 out of 100 submitted full papers were accepted after a single-blind peer-review. The open access proceedings are available at Atlantis press. The posters of the conference are available on the ICT4S website.
The best paper award went to Elina Eriksson and Daniel Pargman from KTH Royal Institute of Technology for the paper “ICT4S Reaching Out: Making sustainability relevant in higher education”.
The best poster award went to Morten T Egholm from DTU – Technical University of Denmark for the poster “Energy Fingerprint“.
The powerpoints from the keynote presentations can be found on the ICT4S website.
The conference tried a new format for presenting scientific papers – ConverStations. The format – jointly developed by the general chair, program chairs and the conference facilitator – received overwhelmingly positive response.
Finally, a great thanks to Daniel Vare, project manager for ICT4S 2014, who was responsible for preparing and arranging most of the practical things before, during and after the conference.
The next ICT4S conference will be held 7-9 September 2015 in Copenhagen in conjunction with the EnviroInfo Conference.
