Researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and stakeholders from around the world engaged in issues of technology and sustainable development participated in IDIA2020.

Due to the ongoing Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) epidemic the IDIA2020 conference was shifted to a virtual format.

Great discussions and interactions took place over the three days of the conference.
