CALL FOR PANELS & WORKSHOPS: 3rd IEEE/ACM International Conference on  
Information and Communication Technologies and Development (ICTD2009)
http://www.ictd2009.org

Proposals deadline: 2 November 2008

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.  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 and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.


PANEL PROPOSALS

The organizers of ICTD2009 would like to spur more reflective dialogue  
among researchers and between researchers and development  
practitioners.  Therefore a small number of panels will be chosen to  
be added to the program.

We invite panel proposals that will add to the emerging ICTD  
discipline by having multiple points-of-view reflect on issues that  
affect the practice of ICTD research and its relationship to  
development practice.  Therefore key assessment criteria we will use  
to evaluate the panel proposals are:
(1) Does it reflect on a novel or unresolved issue in the practice of  
ICTD research.
(2) Does it reflect on a novel or unresolved issue in disseminating or  
scaling the results of ICTD research into general practice.
(3) Does it introduce challenges in the practice of development that  
ICTD research has yet to address adequately.

Panel proposals will also be evaluated on the quality of the panel  
participants' experience to address the topics being proposed.

Panel proposals need to include:
(1) Title for the Panel
(2) Summary of what the panel will cover (max 500 words)
(3) Names, affiliations, and contact information of 3-5 panelists who  
have made a commitment to participate
(4) Abstract of each panelist?s position statements (max 500 words)
(5) Brief biography of each panelist

Proposals will be reviewed by the Panel and Workshop Committee.
