*ICTD2013  Information and Communications Technologies for Development
Conference 2013*

* *

On 7-10 December 2013, the sixth international conference on Information
and Communication Technologies (ICTD2013 <>) will
be held in Cape Town, South Africa. Held in cooperation with ACM SIGCHI and
ACM SIGCAS, ICTD2013 will provide an international forum for scholarly
researchers exploring the role of information and communication
technologies (ICTs) in social, political, and economic development.


*Call** for Notes  ICTD2013*

We would like to invite you to submit a *Note*, which is a new category for
the conference. With a shorter 4-page format, Notes are intended to
highlight work from a range of researchers and practitioners, and can be
used to introduce work-in-progress that may be published later in a
journal, as well as to document shorter project write-ups.

Notes will be assessed according to their research contribution,
methodological soundness, quality of analysis, quality of writing, and
presentation. Manuscripts considering novel designs, new technologies,
project assessments, policy analyses, impact studies, theoretical
contributions, social issues around ICT and development, and so forth will
be considered, however Notes need not necessarily be as comprehensive,
novel, or generalizable as Full Papers.

All Notes submissions are strictly limited to four pages. To allow for
findings, Notes are due on July 26, 2013, closer to the date of the
conference. Authors of accepted Notes will be required to prepare a poster.
For more information, please see the conference website:
