New Delhi – The Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology, Delhi (IIIT-Delhi), and Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi), two of the country’s leading educational institutions renowned for their excellence in research and innovation, are set to host ‘COMPASS 2024,’ an esteemed international event conceptualised by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). This assemblage will take place from 8th to 11th July 2024 at IIIT-Delhi, showcasing groundbreaking research aimed at fostering sustainable societies worldwide.

COMPASS 2024 is a leading venue for presenting and publishing original research across diverse disciplines, including computer and information sciences, social sciences, environmental sciences, and engineering. The forum is deeply inspired by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, encouraging contributions that address global sustainability challenges through innovative technological and scientific advancements.

The ACM, a US-based international learned society for computing, is a non-profit professional membership group dedicated to advancing computing as both a science and a profession. Every year, it organises COMPASS. The last edition took place in Cape Town, South Africa.

The four-day event promises an enriching line-up of activities, featuring interactive keynote sessions, paper presentations, panel discussions, short video screenings, and specialised presentations on critical areas such as education, sustainability, agriculture, finance, and labour.

“We are honoured to host COMPASS 2024 at IIIT-Delhi. This event aligns perfectly with our mission to drive forward-thinking research and innovation. It is an excellent opportunity for scholars and practitioners to collaborate and exchange ideas that contribute to sustainable development,” said Prof. Ranjan Bose, Director of IIIT-Delhi.

The event is made possible through the generous support of prominent sponsors, including Google, Microsoft Research, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the Amarnath and Shashi Khosla School of Information Technology, the Centre for Design and New Media (CDNM) at IIIT-Delhi, and the Infosys Centre of Artificial Intelligence at IIIT-Delhi.

COMPASS 2024 aims to foster collaboration and innovation in sustainable technologies and practices by uniting experts and researchers from various fields. This event supports IIIT-Delhi’s commitment to advancing research and promoting interdisciplinary collaboration for a sustainable future.
