Present CFP : 2017

The ninth International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies and Development (ICTD2017), to be hosted at the Information Technology University from November 16-19, 2017, invites you to submit Full Papers and Notes. Held in cooperation with ACM SIGCAS, ICTD2017 will provide an international forum for scholarly researchers to explore the role of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in social, political, and economic development. The ICTD conferences have been taking place approximately every 18 months since 2006.

Important dates
May 15, 2017: Deadline for submission of Full Papers
July 1, 2017: Notification of acceptances for Full Papers
July 14, 2017 (tentative): Deadline for submission of Notes
September 1, 2017 (tentative): Notification of acceptances for Notes
September 15, 2017 (tentative): Camera-ready Full Papers and Notes due
All submission are due 11:59 pm UTC.

Information and communication technologies (ICTs) continually become more pervasive in the lives of people around the world. With increasing relevance, ICTs are used in daily life from markets to health care, education to governance, family life to artistic expression. Diverse groups across the world interact with, are affected by, and can shape the design of these technologies. The ICTD conference provides a forum for analyzing, critiquing and refining the ways in which individuals, communities and societies interact with and make use of these tools and platforms. There are multidisciplinary challenges associated with the engineering, application and adoption of ICTs in developing regions and/or for development, with implications for design, policy, and practice.

For the purposes of this conference, the term “ICT” comprises electronic technologies for information processing and communication, as well as systems, interventions, and platforms that are built on such technologies. “Development” includes, but is not restricted to, poverty alleviation, education, agriculture, healthcare, general communication, gender equality, governance, infrastructure, environment and sustainable livelihoods. The conference program will reflect the multidisciplinary nature of ICTD research, with anticipated contributions from fields including (but not limited to) anthropology, computer science, communication, design, economics, electrical engineering, geography, human-computer interaction, information science, information systems, political science, public health, and sociology.

Full Papers
• An ICTD Full Paper, which is up to 10 pages in the ACM two-column format (including figures and tables but excluding references), must make a new research contribution and provide complete and substantial support for its results and conclusions. Accepted papers typically represent a major advance for the field of ICTD. Full Papers will be evaluated via double-blind peer review by a multidisciplinary panel of at least three readers, one of whom will come from outside the paper’s disciplinary domain in order to ensure broad readability. Accepted Full Papers will be presented as oral presentations at the conference.
• Full Papers will be evaluated according to their novel research contribution, methodological soundness, theoretical framing and reference to related work, quality of analysis, and quality of writing and presentation. Manuscripts considering novel designs, new technologies, project assessments, policy analyses, impact studies, theoretical contributions, social issues around ICT and development, and so forth will be considered. Well-analyzed negative results from which generalizable conclusions can be drawn are also sought. Authors are encouraged (but not required) to address the diversity of approaches in ICTD research by providing context, implications, and actionable guidance to researchers and practitioners beyond the authors’ primary domains. Full Papers typically present mature work whereas Notes (see below) are used for presenting preliminary research that is still work-in-progress.
• All accepted Full Papers will be archived in the ACM Digital Library.
