See the travel site for info on registration, accommodation, and transportation.

ACM COMPASS will be held June 29-July 1, 2022, at the University of Washington in Seattle, USA! We will be co-located with ICTD, which will be held June 27-29.

Inspired by the broad agenda of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), ACM COMPASS is an international forum for the presentation and publication of original research that supports the growth of sustainable societies worldwide, from a broad array of disciplines including computer and information sciences, social sciences, environmental sciences, and engineering.

The ACM COMPASS community has a particular commitment to approaches and research that address the challenges faced by under-represented and marginalized communities, and explicitly promotes multi-disciplinary and cross-disciplinary research and practice that address key challenges for sustainable societies including, but not limited to, equity, health, education, poverty, accessibility, conservation, climate change, energy, infrastructure and economic growth. We also welcome research on the ethics of technology, especially from a critical perspective, that explores limitations and concerns with technology-led solutions for sustainable societies.
