About this group

The International Network for Postgraduate Students in the area of ICT4D (IPID) is an academic network doing research in ICT4D. IPID operates through inter alia support to doctoral as well as master students and increased visibility at international conferences. The network is administered at DSV - Department of Computer & Systems Sciences and funded by SPIDER - the Swedish Program for ICT in Developing Regions.

IPID was established during Spring 2006 with ambitions to become a research-meeting place as well as a social meeting place for students interested in ICT4D. The ambition is also to increase the existing network of SPIDER, national as well as international, and to increase collaboration among universities. With its more than 900 registered members representing over hundreds of universities/research organizations around the globe, the interest for the network has been met beyond all expectations.

Full Papers
An ICTD Full Paper, 7-10 pages in the ACM two-column format (excluding references, but including figures and tables), must make a new and complete research contribution, articulate how it is advancing the field of ICTD, and provide complete and substantial support for its results and conclusions. Papers will be evaluated via double-blind peer review by a multidisciplinary panel of at least three reviewers, one of whom will come from outside the paper’s disciplinary domain in order to ensure broad readability. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to give an oral presentation at the conference. Papers are archived by default in the ACM Digital Library (unless otherwise requested by authors). A subset of these papers will be selected for publication in the Information Technology and International Development (ITID) journal as well. Submit at https://ictdx.cs.washington.edu/submit/.

Full Papers without Publications
New this year! We recognize that, in some disciplines, papers in conference proceedings have less publication value. Handing over the copyright to ACM may also be undesirable. To allow scholars in these fields to present their research at ICTD, we welcome an additional kind of submission under Papers - papers accepted for publication in the preceding year and a half (from January 1, 2017 through July 22, 2018). Inclusion of these papers into the conference program will depend on relevance to the conference program and availability of slots. Accepted papers will be invited for an oral presentation. Authors are requested to submit their paper as an email attachment with information about the (1) authors, (2) publication venue, (3) publication status, and (4) (expected) date of publication to submissions@ictdx.org by September 1, 2018.

Posters
An ICTD Poster, up to 4 pages in the ACM two-column format (excluding references, but including figures and tables), can report on practitioner projects, research work in progress, dissertation progress, and other content that would enrich the conference. A complete research contribution is not mandatory. Posters will be reviewed in the same timeline as (but differently than) Papers. Accepted Posters will be presented as posters at the conference and will be archived in the ACM Digital Library (unless otherwise requested by authors). Submit at https://ictdx.cs.washington.edu/submit/.

Open Positions

Funded PhD Position on Sociotechnical Design for Industry 4.0 Innovation in Heathrow Airport
The PhD position starts in September 2018 in collaboration with Heathrow Airport Innovation Unit and Copenhagen Business School.

Research Rationale
Digital and automation technologies improve the safety, predictability and reliability of operational processes. Notions of job satisfaction and wellbeing at work are linked to discussions of design and use of digital and automation technologies that shape workers? work at different times, in various locations, and at different levels.

Airports are natural places where these digital and automation technologies can be seen in use and are also a natural cradle for innovation. This PhD project co-funded by Heathrow Airport will focus on the digitalisation, automation and augmentation of work as it currently is, how industry 4.0 might re-define how work is currently done, and the new opportunities it will create. This is all underpinned by cyber-physical systems, e.g., Industry (i4.0). It will also develop and implement socio-technical design frameworks, such as Human Work Interaction Design and Ecological Interface Design, for activity-based wellbeing and service quality in smart and pervasive work environments, across different work domains of the airport terminal operations.

The motivation for this project is that the uses of i4.0 technologies in airports as service-driven work environments are not always automatically positive. If i4.0 implementation is not carefully designed, this could lead to degradation of service quality goals for passengers and workers. However, if implemented in a considered way these potential negatives could be transformed into positive outcomes.

Call for Participation: ICTD 2019
January 4-7, 2019, Ahmedabad, India
Deadline for Papers and Posters: July 22, 2018

The 10th International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies and Development (ICTD 2019), being hosted at the Indian Institute of Management (Ahmedabad, India) January 4-7, 2019, invites you to submit your work. To be held in cooperation with ACM SIGCAS, ICTD 2019 will provide an international forum for scholarly researchers to explore the role of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in the context of social, political, and economic development.

Information and communication technologies (ICTs) have become more pervasive in the lives of people around the world. They are being used in various facets of daily life ranging from markets to health care, education to governance, family life to artistic expression. Diverse groups across the world interact with, are impacted by, and can shape the design of these technologies. The ICTD conference provides a forum for analyzing, critiquing, refining, and inventing new ways in which individuals, communities, and societies interact with and make use of these tools and platforms. There are multidisciplinary challenges associated with the engineering, application, and adoption of ICTs in “developing” regions and/or for development, with implications for design, policy, and practice.

For the purposes of this conference, the term “ICT” comprises electronic technologies for information processing and communication, as well as systems, use of big data, interventions, and platforms that are built on such technologies. “Development” includes, but is not restricted to, poverty alleviation, education, agriculture, healthcare, general communication, gender equality, governance, infrastructure, environment, and sustainable livelihoods. The conference program will reflect the multidisciplinary nature of ICTD research and publishing traditions, with anticipated contributions from fields including (but not limited to) anthropology, computer science, communication, data science, design, economics, electrical engineering, geography, human-computer interaction, information studies, information systems, political science, public health, and sociology.
