ITAC - Information Technology against COVID19

Special Track at the ACM Conference on Information Technology for Social Good

The emergency resulting from the COVID 19 pandemic has led to a radical change in our lives. At home, at school, at work, in free time and beyond: people have been asked to change their habits, adopting a lifestyle that can protect the collective well-being. The persistence of the emergency situation and the lockdown is putting a strain on the population; among the main problems, we cite social distancing for the most vulnerable individuals, distance learning for children, health pressure for doctors and patients, fo​rced closures for traders, the uncontrolled spread of fake news that confuse the population, the tourism stop that hinders culture, etc.

The ongoing change requires the adoption of innovative solutions to tackle emerging problems and technology offers great opportunities for social good. The whole society can make use of technological tools t​o the health, physical, mental and psychological well-being safeguard of individuals. ​The goal of this session is to assess the state of tools and methods to support the population and institutions during the management of the COVID19 emergency, creating new opportunities for the future.
