>TRACK DESCRIPTION:
>Throughout its history, Africa has been plagued by long-standing
>problems such as famines, wars, etc. The African people have always
>emerged from these troubles and are proving resilient.  Today,
>however, they have a chance to avert more disasters from happening by
>entering into and exploiting the information technology (IT) arena.
>This technology, if utilized and exploited, will enhance the
>development of all African nations, and will bring them in line with
>the developed nations of the world.  The problems facing the African
>nations can be mainly related to the lack of human and technical
>skills and financial resources.  The need is therefore for a
>collective effort and can partly be achieved through research.  This
>first world conference of GITM can help promote democracy (some
>African countries still have limited access to the Internet) and
>contribute to the understanding and use of IT in Africa. The papers
>that will deal with the African perspective should come form an
>excellent mix of backgrounds, experiences, and cultures and should
>encourage useful debate about the similarities and differences between
>approaches.  The aim of this track would be to explore new ways of
>utilizing information for decision-making in countries and
>organizations.  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
>
>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
