With a 4-page limit, Notes are intended to introduce work-in-progress that may 
be published later in a journal, as well as to document shorter project 
write-ups. An ICTD Note is likely to have a more focused and succinct research 
contribution to the ICTD field than Full Papers. For example, Notes on novel 
ICTD systems may not cover the entire design of the system but may instead go 
into depth in specific areas (e.g., how the system was evaluated with real 
users or how the formative work to create the system was conducted). Notes are 
also not expected to include a discussion of related work that is as broad and 
complete as that of a submission to the Full Papers venue. Accepted Notes will 
be presented as poster presentations at the conference. This year we are also 
introducing short oral presentations (in addition to posters) for top notes 
based on the recommendations of reviewers.

Notes will be evaluated by at least two multidisciplinary reviewers in a 
double-blind fashion and will be assessed according to their research 
contribution, methodological soundness, quality of analysis, 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. However Notes need not necessarily be as comprehensive, novel, or 
generalizable as Full Papers.

Only original, unpublished, research papers in English will be considered. 
Notes must use the ACM 
templates<> (LaTex 
and Word) and must be no longer than 4 pages respectively. The main text, 
figures, tables, footnotes, references, etc. must fit within these page limits. 
Additional material may be included in an Appendix, but the text within the 
page limits must read as a standalone work. Submissions longer than the page 
limits, not in the template format, not related to the conference themes, 
and/or not meeting a minimum bar of academic research writing will be rejected 
without full review. Submitted Notes must not include names or other 
information that would identify the authors. All accepted Notes will be made 
available in the ACM Digital Library. Copyright for Notes will be retained by 
the authors.

Over the past several decades, information and communication technologies 
(ICTs) have become more pervasive, accessible, and relevant in the lives of 
people around the world. Virtually no sphere of human activity remains apart 
from ICTs, 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 is a place to understand these interactions, and to examine, 
critique, and refine the persistent, pervasive hope that ICTs can be enlisted 
by individuals and communities in the service of human development. 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.
