Final Call for Papers:

WG 9.4: Social Implications of Computers in Developing Countries
12th International Conference on Social Implications of Computers in
Developing Countries

Conference Theme: Into the Future: Themes, insights and agendas for ICT4D
research and practice

Ocho Rios Jamaica, 19-22 May, 2013

Submission Deadline :November 26th, 2012

The Working Group 9.4 of the International Federation for Information
Processing gathers scholars and practitioners that deal with the issue on
how ICT affects social development. In the last three decades this issue
has been attracting scholars from information systems and a variety of
other areas such as development studies, political science, political
economy, social anthropology, and sociology.

The theme of the 12th International Conference of the IFIP 9.4 Working
Group 2013 in Jamaica is "Into the Future." The importance of this theme is
fundamental to our research domain, namely how might information and
communication technologies shape the future of development within
developing counties.  At the conference we seek to not only present
scholarly conference papers in and around the different tracks but also to
provoke thought and discussion in and around how we might set the agenda
for the future for ICT4D research and practice.  Thus we seek to
problematize the past, present and the future of ICT4D.

To do this we welcome contributions from a wide range of perspectives.  We
want to think through the future agenda in the area of ICT4D for theory,
methodology and practice.  This requires us to not only make clear our own
positions but to encourage us to actively question them.  The conference
thus will seek to promote critical debate across a range of perspectives.

In order to organize the discussion, we have 16 tracks that cover a wide
range of themes.

We look forward to welcoming you to IFIP 9.4 in Jamaica!
