>TRACK DESCRIPTION:
>
>Throughout its history, Africa has been been seen basically as a source
>of raw materials and labour.  Despite its long history of innovation,
>acceptance of change, and resourcefulness, the continent has been
>plagued by long-standing problems such as famines, wars, etc.   Many,
>especially those in the post-industrial West, consider Africa as a
>recipient of aid rather than as a source of inspiration.  Yet the
>African people have always emerged from these troubles and are proving
>resilient.
>
>Many, especially in Africa, consider that information technology, if
>utilised and exploited intelligently and with sensitivity to culture and
>the environment, will enhance the development of all African nations,
>and will bring them in line with the developed nations of the world.
>While the problems facing African nations can be mainly related to the
>lack of human and technical skills and financial resources, there are
>clear lessons from other regions that these not constitute a permanent
>barrier to development.  There is a need for collective effort that can
>partly be facilitated through research.
>
>This second World GITM conference can help promote the use of IT as a
>means to social, economic, and political ends such as democracy, land
>distribution, and poverty alleviation in Africa.  Papers in this stream
>that will deal with the African perspective should encourage useful
>debate about the similarities and differences among a variety of
>approaches.  Sessions in this stream should cater for a strong mix of
>backgrounds, experiences, and cultures.  The overall aim of this track
>would be to explore new ways of using information and information
>technology for decision-making in Africa countries and organisations.
>This will involve discussing the methodologies and tools used in
>designing and implementing information systems that identify successes
>(and failures) in information systems.
>
>RECOMMENDED TOPICS
>

>extended abstracts (completed or in-progress research: about 4-6 pages),
