2nd International Symposium "Perspectives on ICT4D"

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventConferenceAcademic


After the first very successful “Perspectives on ICT4D” Symposium in Amsterdam with over 100 international participants in May 2014, we organize a second one – like last year also as a special event as part of the ICT4D master course in Amsterdam. The central theme for this year is: Data 4 Development. Big & Open Data is hot in western advanced countries, but how is it in the developing and emerging world? International speakers will highlight recent issues, trends and debates regarding ICT4D, from a wide range of experiences, angles, and scientific disciplines. The Symposium aims to elucidate key questions surrounding ICT4D, including: What are successful approaches to ICT4D? What is the role of ICT in the broader context of development? Can ICT4D research contribute to real impact?
