Computing and Sustainable Societies 2019
Accra, Ghana | July 3 – 5, 2019


The second annual ACM SIGCAS Conference on Computing and Sustainable
Societies (COMPASS 2019) invites submissions for the conference to be
hosted at Accra, Ghana, July 3 – 5, 2019.  COMPASS began as ACM DEV, which
was held annually between 2010 and 2016.

The COMPASS conference, now in its second year, aims to advance the
state-of-the-art in developing sustainable technologies for regions around
the world. Researchers at the conference have broad technical expertise,
spanning artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, networking,
systems, speech and language processing, computer security, data mining,
and computer vision. They seek to apply this expertise to diverse problems
in sustainable development, spanning health, accessibility, education,
agriculture, financial services, and governance.
Call for Papers

The second annual ACM SIGCAS Conference on Computing and Sustainable
Societies (COMPASS 2019) invites submissions for the conference. The program
<https://acmcompass.org/2018/program> from last year showcases the types of
topics typically relevant to the conference. COMPASS broadly includes
papers from four general “areas”: Systems, HCI, Data Science/AI, and
Deployment Experiences.

*Systems: *The Systems area focuses on computational innovations. Relevant
topics may include networking; data collection toolkits;

*HCI: *The HCI area focuses on socio-technical systems. Relevant topics may
include gender equity; social forces influencing wireless network access;
the landlord/tenant information economy;

*Data Science/AI: *The Data Science/AI area focuses on analysis, collection
of large scale data sets as well as models and algorithms for developing
and studying AI based systems. AI applications not deployed are also
considered in this area.

*Deployment Experiences: *The Deployment Experiences area focuses on
reporting experiences with field deployments or results from long-term
studies that can provide valuable insights into how our tools perform (or
fail) in real-world applications.

COMPASS 2019 will have two tracks. To help facilitate global
representativeness, COMPASS provides mentoring to support potential authors
who need guidance in creating these papers.

The* Papers* track will represent archival journal-type submissions, with a
length of between 4 to 10 pages plus references. Papers submitted to this
track should represent polished, significant contributions. Authors are
encouraged to submit a paper of length proportional to its contribution.

In addition, COMPASS 2019 will have a *Posters *track for preliminary
projects or late-breaking results. Posters will not be archival and are
intended to allow presenters to share their latest results or get early
feedback on projects. Poster submissions will be limited to 2 pages plus
references. There are two poster submission deadlines (March 15 and May 15)
to allow for earlier travel planning as well as late-breaking work.
