International Symposium on
Technologies for Social Advancement (T4SA'10)

Wisła, Poland, October 18-20, 2010


The International Symposium on Technologies for Social Advancement will be held within the International Multi-conference on Computer Science and Information Technology in Wisla, Poland, 18-20 October 2010.

T4SA 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.

The T4SA symposium will be held as an open forum to promote discussions.  The symposium will have a modified format with round table discussions  and extended paper presentations. The extended paper presentations will include a regular presentation length and a 15-20 minute discussion period.

The T4SA symposium encourages submissions of original research papers, practical applications and technology, and position papers on all aspects of computing technology connected directly  or indirectly with social advancement. We are also looking for  ideas about ways to use, deploy, develop and promote the application and use of mobile phones and Internet Technology toward educational and social goals.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Applications and technology for the disabled/elderly & health care
  • Applications and technology for education
  • Social activism through mobile and Internet technology
  • Human rights and mobile and Internet technology
  • Learning and education for social and economic impact
  • Mobile technology and software for informal economies
  • Mobile software
  • Education through mobile devices
  • Open ideas on communities/groups/people and how they may benefit from computers/Internet/mobile technology





Paper Submission and Publication

  • 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.
