We welcome you to join us in Hiroshima, Japan for the 2nd International Conference on ICT for Sustainable Development (ICT4SD 2017), which will precede the 72nd Hiroshima Peace Memorial and Remembrance Ceremony.

In addition to the conference, participants will have an opportunity to visit Hiroshima Peace Park and the Shrine Island of Miyajima — both are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

With the theme Resilience, the aim of ICT4SD is to draw attention to the intersections and interconnectedness between technology and sustainable development in an increasingly globalized world.

As the fields of sustainable development cross over into multiple areas and disciplines, authors are welcome to submit from a range of topics, perspectives, and disciplines. The range of research submissions may include conceptual, empirical, experimental, and case studies.

We particularly invite papers making empirical and theoretical contributions about the social and economic processes impacting on sustainable development; global environmental governance, business and public policy approaches; technological innovations; climate change adaptation & mitigation; sustainable tourism and ecotourism; renewable energy development.

We welcome submissions of 250 words in English by Friday, June 2, 2017 on the following areas
