GOODTECHS 2020 - 6th EAI International Conference on Smart Objects and
Technologies for Social Good
September 14-16, 2020
Antwerp, Belgium

==== SCOPE ====

By social good we refer to a “good” or a service that benefits the
largest number of people in the largest possible way. Some classic
examples of social goods are, of course, healthcare, safety,
environment, democracy, and human rights, but we can add to this
classic list even communication, art, entertainment and much more.

In this context, the popularity of portable computing devices, like
smartphones, tablets, or smart watches combined with the emergence of
many other small smart objects with computational, sensing and
communication capabilities coupled with the popularity of social
networks and new human-technology interaction paradigms is creating
unprecedented opportunities for each of us to do something useful,
ranging from a single person to the whole world. Furthermore, Internet
of Things, Smart-cities, distributed sensing and Fog computing are
representative examples of modern ICT paradigms that aim to describe a
dynamic and globally cooperative infrastructure built upon objects’
intelligence and self-configuring capabilities. These connected
objects are finding their way into our pockets, vehicles, urban areas
and infrastructure, thus becoming the very texture of our society and
providing us the possibility, but also the responsibility, to shape

In GOODTECHS ( we are hence 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.
