ICT4S 2024
Mon 24 - Fri 28 June 2024 Stockholm, Sweden

The ICT4S Doctoral Symposium brings together doctoral students working in all areas of ICT for Sustainability, providing participants opportunities to present and discuss their research in a constructive and collegial setting. This year participants can either join a half-day virtual gathering on June 17 (for those not physically attending the conference), or an in-person, full day event on June 24, held during the conference in Stockholm, Sweden.

Call for Contributions

Whether virtual or in-person, the ICT4S doctoral symposium features a highly interactive and generative format designed to help doctoral students strengthen their work. Each student will present their research project and receive constructive feedback from an international group of colleagues who are at different career stages, and from a range of academic fields.

Who Should Participate

The doctoral symposium welcomes any doctoral student whose dissertation topic is strongly aligned with ICT4S, and whose scholarship would benefit from external feedback.
