Call for papers

We invite submissions of full papers of between 12 to 15 pages, formatted according to the Springer’s CCIS one-column page format template. Only original, unpublished, research papers in English can be considered. The technical program committee will evaluate papers on the basis of their originality, methodological rigour, significance, clarity, and relevance to the conference theme. We encourage submission of papers that draw out clear implications, and actionable guidance both to practitioners and policy makers within the ICT4D domain.

Full papers will undergo a double-blind, peer review by at least three reviewers. A selection of accepted papers will be published in a Springer Communications in Computer and Information Science (CCIS) volume and the rest of the papers will be published in conference proceedings with an ISBN. CCIS is abstracted/indexed in DBLP, Google Scholar, EI-Compendex, Mathematical Reviews, SCImago, Scopus. CCIS volumes are also submitted for inclusion in ISI Proceedings. Previous years’ conference proceedings have been published in a Springer CCIS volume.

Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit 2-page policy briefs based on their paper. These will be reviewed by the conference organizers for possible inclusion in a United Nations University published policy brief volume.
