Call for Papers

Hosted by the Agility Centre of the University of Liverpool Management School

“ICT4D North” is a network connecting researchers working on ICT4D/ICTD in the North of England. The network aims to foster intellectual exchange, research synergies and collaborations within our geographical region and make our multi-polar cluster of expertise visible to our partners.

We are pleased to announce the third annual meeting of the network Call for Papers to be presented in this event. The main objective is to explore and connect current research by members of the ICT4D North network, which will continue to be interdisciplinary in nature, incorporating viewpoints from across various subject areas.

We invite abstracts for a) completed research and findings, b) work in progress on which you seek feedback and c) research project ideas for which you might seek collaborators. These can be related to any topic area within the field of ICTs and Development/ICT4D/Digital Development. We particularly welcome abstracts from early-career researchers, including PhD students.

Please use the Abstract Template. Based on the submissions from network members we will curate thematic tracks.
