IEEE/ACM International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies and Development (ICTD2007)
Following on a successful conference at Berkeley in May of 2006, we are pleased to announce the second ICTD conference to take place in Bangalore, India.
India is home to a robust IT and telecommunications industry as well as a huge agrarian economy which supports many of the world's poor. As such, it is an ideal setting for a conference focusing on information and communication technologies (ICT) and socio-economic development. Every sector is involved — governments, academia, small start-ups, large corporations, inter-governmental organizations, and non-profits and non-governmental organizations. In spite of the tremendous energy and resources behind these projects, scientifically sound research in this space is still just beginning to emerge: What is the actual impact of ICT projects? What novel technology is required to meet development needs? What methodologies lead to success or failure of a project?
