Call For Papers

Underdevelopment, insecurity, poverty, inequality, and immigration are major problems faced by developing countries. Since 2000, international donor agencies are encouraging the usage of ICT in order to reduce the impact of these complex social problems. Today, much has been done. Some researchers have reported practices that can lead to socio-economic development, can improve people’s life, and can install a kind of a new emerging democracy. Indeed, according to some scholars, ICT, if correctly implemented, can have many positive impacts such as: transforming governments, making them more transparent and accountable (Subhajit Basu, 2004), cutting out the middleman, connecting the excluded (Heeks, 2010), helping the agency of women which is of strong effect on development through entrepreneurship (Heeks and Shoba, 2010), introducing the digital production, enabling collective Power and crowdvoicing, allowing the growth of social outsourcing and social enterprises. The literature about development analyses huge potential of a positive contribution of ICT to development.
The aim of LCIS 2016 is to illustrate some of the issues related to ICT for development, while keeping in mind the differences and similarities among developing countries.

• ICT for different aspects of development
