Dear Colleagues,

due to multiple requests we have extended the submission deadline to 
July 31st

Please also note that:
- Six selected papers from the conference will be published in an 
extended version on a dedicated special issue of Springer Mobile 
Networks and Applications (MONET)

See CFP below for further information.

2nd EAI International Conference on
Smart Objects and Technologies for Social Good (GOODTECHS 2016)

   In GOODTECHS we are interested in experiences with the design, 
implementation, deployment, operation and evaluation of smart objects 
and technologies for social good. Clearly, we are not considering only 
the so called first world as the scenario for this evolution; we also 
refer to those areas where ICT is currently less widespread, hoping that 
it may represent a societal development opportunity rather than a source 
for further divide.

Authors are solicited to submit original, previously unpublished papers 
in the following, but not limited to, topic areas:
    * App concepts and technologies for different mobile platforms
    * E-learning solutions
    * Smart governance and e-administration
    * Smart economy solutions
    * Smart living and E-health
    * Data collection, organization and dissemination methods
    * Delay-tolerant aerial networks and ferrying approaches
    * Deployment and field-testing
    * Experimental results of communication testbeds
    * Game, entertainment, and multimedia applications
    * Human-object interaction
    * Mobile service architectures and frameworks
    * Pervasive and ubiquitous services in cloud and IoT
    * Platforms and frameworks for mobile devices
    * Security, Privacy and Anonymity
    * Smart cities and transportation
    * ICT for development
    * Digital tools for art and feelings
    * Technology addressing the digital divide
    * Environment sensing, monitoring and preservation

Beside the main track, GOODTECHS also features the following Special 
Session Tracks (

    * Persuasive Systems Design for Promoting Health & Wellbeing
      CHAIRS: Silvia Gabrielli, Ahmed Salih Fadhil, Dario Betti

- Proceedings are submitted for inclusion to the leading indexing 
services: Elsevier (EI), Thomson Scientific (ISI), Scopus, Crossref, 
Google Scholar, DBLP  as well as EAI's own EU Digital Library (EUDL).

- The authors of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended 
version of their work through one EAI Pervasive Health and Technology
