11th International Conference on Social Implications of Computers in Developing Countries, Conference Theme Partners for Development: ICT Actors and Actions, Kathmandu, Nepal, 22-25 May 2011, Submission Deadline 15th November 2010

The International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) invites you to the 11th International Conference on Social Implications of Computers in Developing Countries. The conference will be held in Kathmandu, Nepal during 22-25th May 2011. The conference will be co-hosted by Tribhuvan University, Kathmandu.

Research on ‘ICT for development’ (ICT4D) is now well established. While ICT is now generally accepted to have a key developmental role, the actual process through which development is influenced remains a much debated issue. Increasingly both conceptual and empirical research on ICT4D has sought to identify and better understand the challenges posed by the socio-political context in which ICT is used in developing countries. With the conference theme, Partners for Development: ICT Actors and Actions, we hope to draw special attention to the role played by multiple actors – public and private, activists and entrepreneurs as well as other kinds of intermediaries – within ICT4D processes and their associated impacts. The conference hopes to provide a space for articulating a variety of approaches and views from these different types of actors in relation to ICT and sustainable development. Nepal, the host country for this year’s conference, presents a unique opportunity to engage with such actors given the growing significance of ICT in this landlocked, mountainous, developing country. In addition to papers from the field of information systems, we also invite contributions that address the conference theme from a variety of other perspectives such as development studies, political science, political economy, social anthropology, and sociology. Multidisciplinary papers are very welcome.
