The 3rd IEEE/ACM International Conference on Information and  
Communication Technologies and Development (ICTD2009) will be held  
17-19 April 2009 at Carnegie-Mellon's state-of-the-art campus in Doha,  
Qatar (http://www.ictd2009.org).  This conference will act as a focal  
point for new scholarship in the field of ICT and international  
development.  Confirmed speakers include a keynote by William H.  
Gates, Chairman of Microsoft Corporation.

We invite submission of papers for ICTD2009, the third of an ongoing  
series of conferences, which follows successful events at Berkeley in  
May 2006 (http://sims.berkeley.edu/ictd2006), and Bangalore in  
December 2007 (http://research.microsoft.com/workshops/ictd2007)

IMPORTANT DATES
September 22, 2008	         Submissions due
January 15, 2009		Final decisions sent out to authors
February 20, 2009		Camera-ready papers due
April 17-19, 2009		Conference

CONFERENCE FOCUS
The goal of the ICTD conference is to provide a forum for academic  
researchers and scholarly practitioners working with ICT applied to  
development.  The conference will be scientifically rigorous and  
multi-disciplinary - papers reporting high-quality original research  
are solicited.  Submitted papers will be subjected to double-blind  
peer review, and a full proceedings will be published at the time of  
the conference.  The conference will bring together researchers and  
reflective practitioners in both the social and technical sciences,  
with anticipated representation from anthropology, sociology,  
economics, political science, computer science, electrical  
engineering, industrial design, and the like, in addition to domain  
specialists in various development fields such as healthcare,  
agriculture, enterprise, education, governance, etc.

For the purposes of this conference, the term "ICT" will comprise  
computing devices (e.g. PCs, PDAs, sensor networks), and technologies  
for voice and data connectivity such as mobile telephony, the  
Internet, and related technologies. Application domains include, but  
are not restricted to, education, agriculture, enterprise, healthcare,  
poverty alleviation, general communication, and governance.  Papers  
considering novel design, new technology, project assessment, policy,  
impact, content, social issues around ICT for development, and so  
forth will be considered. Well-presented negative results from which  
generalizable conclusions can be drawn are also sought.

CONFERENCE SUBMISSIONS AND PUBLICATION
Only original, unpublished papers in English will be considered,  
through double-blind review. Word-length limit: 8000 words (this is a  
maximum, not a target!). Submission must be through the conference  
website (http://www.ictd2009.org), and authors should follow IEEE  
formatting, detailed online. Authors will be required to sign a  
copyright release for the proceedings.

Papers from the previous conference are now available on IEEE Xplore  
(IEEE's digital library), e.g.:  
http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/servlet/opac?punumber=4085497.   We also  
plan to develop some papers for a journal special issue; selected  
papers from previous conferences were published in special issues of  
ITID journal; e.g. see: http://www.mitpressjournals.org/toc/itid/4/1

If authors would like quick feedback on an outline or abstract  
(especially to gauge topic appropriateness), they can submit this to  
the Program Committee no later than August 22nd, using the designated  
email address: [log in to unmask] This is voluntary and is  
not part of the formal peer review process.

ICTD2009 will have a separate call for panels and workshops, and an  
opportunity to demonstrate ICTD applications. Please refer to the  
conference website for details.

VENUE
Qatar is a rapidly growing economy in the region and the world which  
has set its targets of moving beyond a hydrocarbon economy into  
becoming a regional and global leader in knowledge and information.   
Qatar is a modern, stable nation with a vibrant international  
population, and hosted the Asian Games in 2007. Education City brings  
leading educational and research institutions to Qatar, including  
Cornell, Georgetown, Texas A&M, and Carnegie Mellon, offering degree  
programs in Computer Science, Business Administration, and Information  
Systems.  This provides an ideal venue for hosting ICTD2009, in a  
geographic location close to major population centers around the  
world, easily accessible by direct flights.
