Thanks to all who joined in ICTD2010
The ICTD2010 conference, hosted by the ICT4D Collective at Royal Holloway, University of London, was the latest in the series of highly successful international ICTD conferences held in Doha(2009), Bangalore (2007) and Berkeley (2006). It aimed to provide a forum for researchers, practitioners and all those with interests in the use of information and communication technologies in development practice to meet to discuss the latest research advances in the field.
Building on the success of its predecessors, ICTD2010 combined two days of plenary peer-reviewed paper sessions, with two days of workshops, panel sessions, discussion forums,and demos, including sessions in Spanish. A particular feature was the opportunity that it provided for participatory involvement from people from a diversity of backgrounds.
ICTD2010 was hosted by the UNESCO Chair in ICT4D and the multidisciplinary ICT4D Research Centre at Royal Holloway, University of London’s magnificent campus situated only 20 minutes from London’s Heathrow airport.
Why Conferences Are Important?
There are several key reasons why attending a conference is important. Conferences bring different educational and social benefits to every attendee, speaker, or sponsor because no event is the same as a previous one. One of the main reasons why conferences are important, and why people attend them is to expand their knowledge and find solutions to their problems. They can also present their ideas and work with others, learning beyond their field of interest. This conference guide will help you understand that attending to any event of this kind, and entering the tech world conference, can be a great inspiration for your research, providing you as much conference news as possible. You only need to follow ictd2010.org and always stay updated on every upcoming ICTD international conference.
