Call for Papers: Deadline June 1, 1999

Information Technology in Developing Countries
Part of the Organisational Systems and Technology Track of the Thirty-third
Annual Hawaii International Conference on Systems Sciences (HICSS) Hawaii,
January 4 - 7, 2000
http://www.hawaii.edu/hicss

This mini-track is one of the foremost international forums concerned with
the design, development and implementation of information and communication
technologies (ICTs) in developing countries.  Whilst acknowledging the
disparity in diffusion of such technologies between the developed and the
underdeveloped worlds, and against a background of considerable
technological, economical, educational, organisational, political and
cultural variations, we take a wide view of ICT implementations so as to
include those that are relevant to the countries concerned rather than to
any accepted norms prevalent in developed countries. We welcome papers that
offer original perspectives on the use of ICTs in developing countries.
However, in conformity with the dominant themes currently surrounding ICTs
inside many developing countries and in accordance with the prevailing
enthusiasm among the development community for the application of ICT
solutions to certain specific developmental problems, contributions are
especially sought in the following areas:
Internet usage
*       Diffusing access
*       Internet Service Provider management issues
*       Maximising the use of limited resources
*       Adapting technologies to local conditions

Applications of IT in Rural Areas
*       Spreading telecommunications to rural and remote communities
*       Supporting  rural economies
*       Health care delivery in rural and remote areas
*       Distance education for rural learning
*       Supporting rural commerce electronically
*       Electronic governance for rural communities

National Policies for IT
*       Policy making processes for IT in the developing world
*       IT to support policy decision-making
*       National policy analyses
*       National policy comparisons

IT in Development Practice
*       Technology transfer in Development practice
*       Sustainability in Development applications
*       Measuring the social value of IT
*       Understanding the  relationship between IT spending and benefits
*       Societal implications of IT implementation
*       Implementation success/failure factors
*       Coping with resistance to change
*       Y2K issues for developing countries

Research Practice in IT in Development
*       Theory building for IT in Development
*       Bibliographic analyses of IT issues in Development
*       Research relevance and impacts
*       Methodologies for IT research in Development; action research,
ethnography, phenomenological and interpretative approaches.

Education in IT
*       Issues in teaching computing in developing countries
*       Computer literacy for development
*       Curriculum development for IT
*       Distance learning and remote education
*       Organisational capacity building

Cultural Aspects of IT in Developing Countries
*       Cross-cultural analyses
*       Cultural dimensions of IT implementations
*       Cultural adaptation to IT
*       Cultural barriers to IT diffusion
