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. 

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.
