ICTD 2019

***Call for Participation***

Deadline for Papers and Posters: July 22, 2018

Conference: Jan 4-7, 2019, Ahmedabad, India

The 10th International Conference on Information and Communication
Technologies and Development (ICTD 2019), being hosted at the Indian
Institute of Management (Ahmedabad, India) January 4-7, 2019, invites you
to submit your work. To be held in cooperation with ACM SIGCAS, ICTD 2019
will provide an international forum for scholarly researchers to explore
the role of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in the
context of social, political, and economic development.

Information and communication technologies (ICTs) have become more
pervasive in the lives of people around the world. They are being used in
various facets of daily life ranging from markets to health care, education
to governance, family life to artistic expression. Diverse groups across
the world interact with, are impacted by, and can shape the design of these
technologies. The ICTD conference provides a forum for analyzing,
critiquing, refining, and inventing new 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, use of big data, 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 and publishing traditions, with
anticipated contributions from fields including (but not limited to)
anthropology, computer science, communication, data science, design,
economics, electrical engineering, geography, human-computer interaction,
information studies, information systems, political science, public health,
and sociology.

An ICTD Full Paper, 7-10 pages in the ACM two-column format (excluding
references, but including figures and tables), must make a new and complete
research contribution, articulate how it is advancing the field of ICTD,
 and provide complete and substantial support for its results and
conclusions. Papers will be evaluated via double-blind peer review by a
multidisciplinary panel of at least three reviewers, one of whom will come
from outside the paper’s disciplinary domain in order to ensure broad
readability. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to give an oral
presentation at the conference. Papers are archived by default in the ACM
Digital Library (unless otherwise requested by authors). A subset of these
papers will be selected for publication in the Information Technology and
International Development (ITID) journal as well. The submission link will
be posted on the website at https://www.ictdx.org/participate/.


New this year! We recognize that, in some disciplines, papers in conference
proceedings have less publication value. Handing over the copyright to ACM
may also be undesirable. To allow scholars in these fields to present their
research at ICTD, we welcome an additional kind of submission under
Papers--papers accepted for publication in the preceding year and a half (from
Jan. 1, 2017 through July 22, 2018). Inclusion of these papers into the
conference program will depend on relevance to the conference program and
availability of slots. Accepted papers will be invited for an oral
presentation. Authors are requested to submit their paper as an email
attachment with information about the (1) authors, (2) publication venue,
(3) publication status, and (4) (expected) date of publication to
submissi...@ictdx.org by Sep 1, 2018.


An ICTD Poster, up to 4 pages in the ACM two-column format (excluding
references, but including figures and tables), can report on practitioner
projects, research work in progress, dissertation progress, and other
content that would enrich the conference. A complete research contribution
is not mandatory. Posters will be reviewed in the same timeline as (but
differently than) Papers. Accepted Posters will be presented as posters at
the conference and will be archived in the ACM Digital Library (unless
otherwise requested by authors). The submission link will be posted on the
website at https://www.ictdx.org/participate/.


Open Sessions will welcome a variety of submissions and formats. These will
be submitted in the form of extended abstracts and will include proposals
for panels, workshops, doctoral colloquium submissions, and more. While
some open sessions have been pre-decided (doctoral colloquium, young
researchers, etc.), others are up to the authors to define. They can choose
to submit to the sessions that have been determined in advance, or propose
one of their own. A Google form for participation will be posted on the
website at https://www.ictdx.org/participate/.
