Call for Demos

The Eighth International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies and Development (ICTD2016), to be hosted at the University of Michigan from June 3-6, 2016, cordially invites proposals for demonstrations. ICTD2016 will provide an international forum for scholarly researchers to explore the role of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in social, political, and economic development.

The demo session will provide students, researchers, and practitioners with an international audience for showcasing demonstrations of their work. The demo session will be given wide visibility and opportunities for interaction during the conference. Your demonstration may span novel hardware or software systems, or physical artifacts. Research projects, commercial tools, or government initiatives are all welcome. We particularly encourage engaging, interactive demos that demonstrate real world impact. While the topic for demonstrations may have been published previously, the demonstration itself should offer new insights and perspectives to the ICTD community.

For consideration, an abstract of between 100-400 words describing the context, novelty, and significance of the demonstration must be submitted. Be as descriptive and precise as possible, detailing what exactly will be demonstrated. Also include the technical requirements for your demo (e.g., power, Internet access, space and other setup requirements). Each proposal should also include a demo title, as well as names, affiliations, and contact information for all authors.
Demonstration proposals will be reviewed according to relevance to the conference. Accepted demonstration proposals will not be published in the conference proceedings, but will be listed as part of the conference program.
