DEADLINE: Friday July 26: Abstract Submission deadline (17h00 GMT)

ICTD2013 are pleased to invite emerging scholars to submit a maximum 600-word abstract focusing on the theme, “ICT ecosystems in developing countries.” Your abstract submission will be for the pre-conference ICTD symposium (2-6 December 2013).

If you submit an abstract, your abstract will be peer-reviewed. Authors of accepted abstracts will be notified to submit a full paper and you will be invited to present the full paper at this symposium. Travel scholarships will include your flight, accommodation, meals and registration paid by ICTD2013.

You will have to submit an abstract for the symposium to get funding for the two events (pre-conference and ICTD2013). You do not need to have a paper accepted for ICTD2013, and you can present your ICTD paper at the symposium if it concerns the theme of "ICT ecosystems".

Preference will be given to scholars who are citizens from or residents in developing countries.

For some ideas around ICT ecosystems in developing countries, we have tried to pull together some main concepts and discussion pieces which can be found here:
