2nd International Conference on ICT for Sustainability (ICT4S 2014)

The 2nd International Conference on ICT for Sustainability (ICT4S 2014) will be held in Stockholm, Sweden 24-27 August 2014. ICT4S is a series of research conferences bringing together leading researchers, developers and government and industry representatives interested in using Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) as a tool to reach sustainability goals. The 1st ICT4S Conference was held in Zürich and attracted 250 participants from 40 countries.

The theme of ICT4S 2014 is “ICT and transformational change”. Sustainable development needs transformational changes regarding both technology and patterns of production and consumption. This conference will explore and shape the role of ICT in this process and assess positive and negative impacts of ICT on sustainability. ICT for sustainability is about utilizing the transformational power of ICT for making our world more sustainable: saving energy and material resources by creating more value from less physical input, increasing quality of life for ever more people without compromising future generations’ ability to meet their needs.

The Conference will be held at Clarion Hotel Skanstull, Ringvägen 98, 118 60 Stockholm and will include a number of satellite events, such as a number of Workshops as well as a Green Hackathon: Hacking for Sustainable Food on August 23rd.
