Abstract

The Covid19 pandemic heavily impacted on our lives, also as academics, triggering a strong reaction that results in vaccines, more effective diagnosis and therapies, pandemic containment policies, etc. A relevant contribution to this success is due to computer science and information technology, by either supporting other disciplines or as the main driver of solutions for, e.g., diagnostics, social distancing and contact tracing. This article reports on the italian computer scientific community activities against the Covid19 pandemic, by analysing the data obtained from a survey taken in May 2020, during the first pandemic wave in Italy, by the Covid19-IT Task Force established by the CINI (National Interuniversity Consortium for IT). The 131 responses thus collected tell us about the spontaneous reaction of such a community, made of several independent initiatives throughout Italy, which has to be kept alive, by for example evolving into more organized forms.
