ICTD2016 – Call for Participation

Registration is now open for the Eighth International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies and Development (ICTD2016): https://ictd2016.info/registration.

ICTD2016 features an exciting program with 26 Papers presented in plenary sessions, 36 Notes presented as posters, 32 interactive Open Sessions, and two incredible keynotes: Deepak Mishra is co-director of the World Bank’s 2016 World Development Report: Digital Dividends; and Tererai Trent is the Drexel University global health professor featured in “Half the Sky” who began her adult life as a rural Zimbabwean mother of three with no formal education.

The conference schedule is available at https://ictd2016.info/schedule/.

Recommendations for accommodations, with discounted rates are available at https://ictd2016.info/accommodations/. (Book early, as the rooms being held will be released in late April / early May.)

Early registration will close on April 30, so register early! (Note also that standard registration will end on May 30, several days before the conference; on-site registration is extremely expensive, so we encourage you to register in advance.)

If you have any problems or questions, please send an email to ictd2016info@umich.edu.

See you in Ann Arbor!
