CALL FOR PAPERS FOR THE TRACK

Information Technology in Developing Countries

of the

First Annual

Global Information Technology Management (GITM) World Conference

on June 11, 12, 13, 2000 in Memphis, Tennessee, USA

** THE CONFERENCE FOR ALL "INTERNATIONAL" IS RESEARCHERS **

SUBMISSION DEADLINE: November 15, 1999 (to be received by this date).
Please submit directly to the Conference Chair, Dr. Prashant Palvia. For
expeditious processing, we wish to have an all-electronic review process.
Therefore, an electronic submission is strongly recommended (email:
[log in to unmask]). If not possible, please mail 4 copies to the following
address and make sure it arrives by the deadline. In any case, please
include your email address along with the submission.

TRACK DESCRIPTION:
The design, development and implementation of information and communication
technologies (ICTs) in developing countries is the focus of this track.
There is considerable diversity both in the diffusion and in the application
of these technologies between the developed and the developing countries of
the world, notwithstanding a background of considerable technological,
economical, educational, organisational, political and cultural variations.
Nevertheless, this track will address a wide variety of ICT issues, with a
focus on those that are relevant to the countries concerned rather than to
any accepted norms prevalent in developed countries. Thus, we anticipate
authors submitting papers that offer original and even controversial
perspectives on the use of ICTs in developing countries.
RECOMMENDED TOPICS
Papers (completed or in-progress: about 20 double spaced pages), extended
abstracts (completed or in-progress research: about 4-6 pages), panel and
workshop proposals (2-4 pages) dealing with (but not limited to) the
following topics are invited. Please note the name of this track on the
cover page.

*       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
*       Policy making processes for IT in the developing world
*       IT to support policy decision-making
*       Measuring the social value of IT
*       Societal implications of IT implementation
*       Issues in teaching computing in developing countries
*       Computer literacy for development
*       Distance learning and remote education
*       Organisational capacity building
