Computer professionals without borders

Acm Sigcas Computers and Society 49 (3):17-17 (2021)


In November 2005, a group of Italian computer professionals decided to give their knowledge for bridging the digital divide and founded ISF, "Informatici Senza Frontiere" [1]. It is a non-profit organization with the goal of providing help to people living in situations of poverty and marginalization. With the main office in Treviso now is present in most of the Italian regions with hundreds of members, men and women. Their activities span from Italy to developing countries, with courses, digitalization of hospitals and social centers, collaborating with schools, universities and prisons, retirement homes for the elderly and applications for people with disabilities. In May 2013 the UN invited ISF to Geneva for the World Summit on Information Society, recognizing its role and what IT can do for society.
