1st International Symposium on Intelligent Mobile Technologies for Social Change (IMT4SC'09)

Mr�?gowo, Poland, October 12-14, 2009


The First International Symposium on Intelligent Mobile Technologies for Social Change will be held within the International Multi-conference on Computer Science and Information Technology in Mr�?gowo, Poland on October 12-14, 2009.

IMT4SC strives to stimulate and promote cross-disciplinary communication between researchers and developers working in different domains with the goal of developing frameworks, applications, and technology for social impact.

The type of impact can range from individuals (children, elderly, disabled, illiterate, informal businesses, etc) to communal, and in a variety of areas such as economic and social development, education, advocacy, human rights, and healthcare.

There are over 3.5 billion mobile phones in the world and they are proliferating at astounding rates across socio-economic and cultural boundaries and provide unprecedented opportunities for enabling social impact and technical activism.

The IMT4SC symposium encourages submissions of original research papers, practical applications and technology, and position papers on all aspects of computing technology directed at making the world a better place. We are also looking for ideas about ways to use, deploy, develop and promote theapplication and use of mobile phones in the same impact areas.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Mobile technology for informal economies
  • Embedded AI and data mining applications
  • Mobile learning and education
  • Mobile applications for the disabled/elderly
  • Mobile technology impact on health care
  • Mobile technology for social and economic impact
  • Educational impact of mobile technology
  • Human rights and mobile technology
  • The use of mobile technology as an enabler for social impact
  • Social activism which can benefit from mobile technology
  • Open ideas on communities/groups/people and how they may benefit from computers/mobile technology




Paper Submission and Publication

The papers are divided in three categories: work-in-progress and future research papers (3 pages), theoretical papers (8 pages), and practical applications with demonstrations to be shown at symposium (8 pages).

 

  • Authors should submit draft papers (as Postscript, PDF of MSWord file).
  • The total length of a paper should not exceed 8 pages (IEEE style). IEEE style templates are available here.
  • Papers will be refereed and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the symposium.
  • Accepted and Presented paper will be published in the Conference Proceedings and included in the IEEE Xplore® database.
  • Extended versions of selected papers will be published as Special Issues of journal(s) that will be announced later.
