Inspired by the broad agenda of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), ACM COMPASS 2020 aims to publish significant and original research from a broad array of computer and information sciences, social sciences, environmental sciences and engineering fields that support the growth of sustainable societies worldwide, especially including under-represented and marginalized communities. The ACM COMPASS 2020 conference aims to explicitly promote interdisciplinary research work—including new methodologies, systems, techniques, applications, and behavioral, qualitative, and quantitative studies—that addresses key societal challenges related to sustainability, gender equality, health, education, poverty, accessibility, conservation, climate change, energy, infrastructure, and economic growth, among others. We also welcome research on the ethics of technology, especially from a critical perspective, to discuss limitations and concerns with technology-led solutions for sustainable societies.
