Call for Papers
16th Americas Conference on Information Systems (AMCIS 2010), Lima,
Peru, August 12-15, 2010

Track: ICTs in Global Development (sponsored by SIGlobDev)
http://www.amcis2010.org/home/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=100&Itemid=156

Track Co-Chairs:
Narcyz Roztocki, State University of New York at New Paltz
(roztockn at newpaltz.edu)
H. Roland Weistroffer, Virginia Commonwealth University (hrweistr at vcu.edu)

NOTE: Authors of best papers in the ICTs in Global Development track
will be invited to submit revised versions for fast-track review and
possible publication in the journal Information Technology for
Development (ITD) – (http://www.itd.ist.unomaha.edu).

Although the majority of the world population lives and works in
developing, emerging, or transitional economies and information and
communication technologies (ICTs) are important drivers for economic
development, the main stream information systems research remains
focused on the issues related to ICTs in developed, mature economies
(Roztocki and Weistroffer 2008). In contrast, published research on
ICTs in developing, emerging, and transitional economies is rather
sparse and fragmented.

Thus, the objective of the ICTs in Global Development track, sponsored
by the Special Interest Group on ICT and Global Development
(SIGGlobDev), is to encourage more research and publication on this
topic. Consequently, this track serves as a forum for research on the
appropriate use and diffusion of ICTs and associated management
practices in the economically developing world by offering nine
minitracks:
