CFP: IFIP WG9.4 Euro 2020

The 3rd European Conference on the Social Implications of Computers in Developing Countries

10th – 11th June 2020

The University of Salford is delighted to host the European Regional Conference on the Social Implications of Computers in Developing Countries.  

Working Group 9.4 of the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) attracts ethnographers, anthropologists, technologists, ethicists, and engineers interested in the issues around Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and international development. The work of the group often targets countries on the OECD DAC list of official development assistance recipients, but we are also interested in other communities or groups that are marginalised or disadvantaged in their relationships with technologies.

We seek contribution disseminating new and unpublished research from across the full range of interests within the working group.

Provisional details on full conference paper format can be found here.  We are also planning to invite the submission of “experience reports”.  This format is suitable for those wishing to report on actual ICT4D-related work that they are involved with, but who do not wish to write a full conference paper.  Please note that experience reports will not be submitted to the conference proceedings.  We will provide more information on this in early January 2020 with additional details on the paper submission portal, and we’ll also provide additional detail on the experience reports, final paper formats, and conference fees at that time.
