Dear Colleagues,

due to multiple requests we have extended the submission deadline; the new deadline is September 12th (FIRM)

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)
- Other Journals are associated to this conference and will host extended versions of its papers.
- The proceedings will be indexed by main digital libraries.

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Authors are solicited to submit original, previously unpublished papers in the following, but not limited to, topic areas: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

  * Open Challenges in Online Social Networks
    CHAIRS: Laura Ricci, Barbara Guidi

  * ICT4D: Information and communication technologies for persons with disabilities
    CHAIRS: Fulvio Babich, Eric Medvet, Gianni Ramponi

  * Smart Things for Active and Assisted Living (ST4AAL)
    CHAIRS: Susanna Spinsante, Lorena Rossi, Chris Nugent

  * Interdisciplinary Topics

  * Serious Games
    CHAIR: Elif Sürer

  * Smart, internet-connected objects and applications in dynamically evolving cities and communities
    CHAIRS: Vivian Kiousi, George Dimitrakopoulos

  * Semantic Technology for Social Good
    CHAIR: Valentina Presutti

- Accepted papers will be published in the GOODTECHS Conference Proceedings and by Springer-Verlag in the Lecture Notes of ICST (LNICST). The proceedings will be available both in book form and via the SpringerLink digital library, which is one of the largest digital libraries online and covers a variety of scientific disciplines.
- 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 and EAI Ambient Systems journals.
- 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)
