Call For Papers

The first annual ACM SIGCAS Conference on Computing and Sustainable Societies (ACM COMPASS 2018) invites submissions of 4-page Notes for the main conference program. ACM COMPASS is a re-creation of the ACM DEV conference, which was held annually between 2010 and 2016. The new conference expands the focus of the original conference to explicitly welcome work on underrepresented communities worldwide and includes a new track on sustainability. To ensure strong contributions, the conference will accept Notes based on tracks corresponding to the computing areas they draw upon. The tracks for the 2018 conference are Systems, HCI, Data Science, Sustainability, and Applications.

Notes are treated to a similar review process as full papers, with a focus on strength of the research contribution to scholarship in computing and sustainable societies. However, Notes are more focused and provide a shorter contribution. For example, related work or discussion may be much more targeted, rather than aiming for breadth and completeness as in Full Papers. Notes can be up to 4 pages in length (not including references). Notes will be published in the ACM SIGCAS proceedings. Due to the short review cycle, Notes will be assessed as is, without revise and resubmit provisions. Submissions should be made to https://compass18notesposters.hotcrp.com. Use the CHI 2018 Proceedings Format available here. See our FAQ if you still have questions!

Some examples of note-scoped contributions could be:

A case study of an intervention towards social good and evidence of its utility.

A novel technical system that provides a contribution over known techniques in low resource computing.

An empirical or conceptual understanding of a specific under-represented community or situation that enhances how the community or situation is viewed within COMPASS.

A novel methodology for designing, building, or understanding a system for under-represented communities.

An analysis of the impact of a policy, law or regulation in an area relevant to COMPASS.

A discussion with scholarly debate about:

viewpoints (short articles dedicated to views and opinions on the impact of technology in which positions are substantiated by facts or principled arguments),

point/counterpoints (two viewpoints, taking opposite sides of an argument), and

multi-author discussion articles (e.g. authors discuss arguments around an issue concerning the impact of technology on society).

Works in progress without a clear research result are not appropriate submissions and will be rejected. For work-in-progress research, consider submitting to Posters. Please see the FAQ page for further clarifications.
