   Conference <http://smfon.org.np/conference/index1.php>

And Tony has a great reminder for event organizers:

If you are still planning your event then perhaps consider either avoiding
the second half of March and May or maybe piggy-back on someone else’s
event - by scheduling in the same town on the days immediately preceding of
following an existing event - so that we can reduce the environmental and
financial costs of attending international conferences.

I'll second that request with one of my own: please make sure your
attendees know and use the same Twitter hashtag so we call all follow
along. I would suggest #ICT4D <https://twitter.com/#!/search?q=%23ICT4D> as
a start.
