WELCOME TO SustainIT 2017

The 5th IFIP Conference on Sustainable Internet and ICT for Sustainability (SustainIT 2017) will be held December 6-7, 2017 in Funchal, Portugal, and will be hosted by the Madeira Interactive Technologies Institute.

The constant evolution of information and communications (ICT) technologies presents an opportunity to foster the much-needed transformation that will lead the world towards the goal of a more sustainable development. ICT is already a key enabling technology in many areas of our lives, such as smart cities, smart transportation, smart electric energy grids, etc. Nevertheless, the proliferation of ICT brings its own challenges of increased carbon footprint, accelerating obsolescence of electronic equipment, among others. These twin problems of reducing the environmental impact of ICT and exploiting ICT for a more sustainable world form the underlying theme for SustainIT since its inception in 2010.

The first edition of SustainIT was held in 2011 in Lucca, Italy. The second edition was held in Pisa, Italy in 2012. In 2013 the third edition of SustainIT was held in Palermo, Italy. Finally, the previous edition was held in Madrid, Spain, in 2015.

SustainIT 2017 continues this theme by focusing on inter-disciplinary scientific challenges of enhancing the sustainability of ICT and via ICT. The goal of this conference is to bring together people from different research areas, and provide a forum to exchange ideas, discuss solutions, and share experiences among researchers, professionals, and application developers from both industry and academia.
