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 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.
The proceedings are Open access for everybody through funding provided by the conference.
The proceedings consist of 49 thoroughly peer-reviewed papers of high scientific standard. The papers cover a broad range of topics that should be relevant for anyone interested in ICT and sustainable development, and especially those of you with an interest in environmental sustainability. This is, to the best of our knowledge, the most comprehensive publication in the field so far.
The final keynote speaker at ICT4S 2014 is Lorraine Hudson. Lorraine is a freelance consultant specialising in sustainability and smart cities and has reviously worked for Bristol City Council managing Smart City Bristol.
