ACM 3rd International Conference on Information Technology for Social Good (GoodIT 2023)

6-8 September 2023, Lisbon, Portugal


Submission of Papers

Submission Guidelines

Format Requirements – Important!!

ACM GoodIT 2023 will follow the new workflow defined by the ACM called TAPS, so please read the instructions on the ACM page carefully. This new workflow allows having a final document in both PDF and HTML5 accessible formats.

The main steps to follow are:

  1. Authors prepare their manuscript in the designated single-column format using Microsoft Word or LaTeX (use the sample-manuscript.tex for submissions). LaTeX users should use \documentclass[manuscript, review]{acmart}. We strongly recommend using the LaTeX template rather than Word (Latex best practices for TAPS).

  2. The authors have to submit a single-column format PDF via EasyChair (the system will open on April 28th), which will be evaluated by the reviewers. Once on the EasyChair submission page, you will be able to select the track where to submit your paper. The review process is single-blind. Hence reviewers are anonymous, whereas authors do not need to be anonymised on the manuscript.
    Quick Links for template
    - Microsoft Word
    - LaTeX (Use sample-manuscript.tex for submissions)
    - Overleaf (or search for: ACM Conference Proceedings Primary Article)

  3. Upon conditional acceptance of an article, authors revise their manuscript and submit publication-ready source files (Word or LaTeX) to TAPS (not on the submission system). We will announce further instructions after the papers submission deadline.

Papers length

  • Full Papers (main track and special tracks): papers must not exceed twelve (12) single-column pages, excluding references. Papers with a length disproportionate to their contribution will likely be rejected.

  • Work in Progress Track Papers: papers must not exceed eight (8) single-column pages, excluding references.

  • PhD Track Papers: papers must not exceed five (5) single-column pages, excluding references.

Publication and acceptance info

Submitted papers (in each of the special tracks) must be original works and must not have been previously published. They will be peer-reviewed by the member of the TPC (three reviews). All accepted and presented papers will be included in the conference proceedings published in ACM Digital Library. At least one of the authors of all accepted papers must register and present the work in presence at the conference; otherwise, the paper will not be published in the proceedings.
