Preface

We are pleased to welcome you to the first Pre-AMCIS SIG GlobDev Workshop of the AIS Special Interest Group for ICT in Global Development. The objective of the SIG is to contribute to progress in the economically developing world through research on the appropriate use of ICT and associated management practices. Over its four-year existence, the SIG has attracted over 100 members, approximately 40 of whom have agreed to serve on its governing board. As shown in Appendix I, the oversight committee and each of the SIG’s five working committees consists of representatives from seven different regions: Africa, Asia, Australasia, Europe, Mid-east, North America and South America.

This workshop provides a forum for discussion of practical experience and research related to the use of ICT in global development.

We wish to sincerely thank the reviewers who were involved in the reviewing process – see Appendix II for a complete listing. Their careful reviews and expert opinions contributed greatly to the quality of the workshop. We also wish to thank the AIS staff and a number of other individuals for their help with the workshop:

  • Salam Abdallah, Abu Dhabi University, and Reem Ayoubi, Concordia University, for their hard work and expertise in developing the SIG GlobDev web site and patience in managing the many iterations and changes during the development of the online proceedings.
  • Special thanks to all of the authors who submitted their work to the workshop, the session chairs, and the many other colleagues who have lent their support to this workshop over the last year.

Our pre-ICIS workshops in Paris, Phoenix and Saint Louis were very successful. We hope that this pre-AMCIS workshop will continue that successful tradition and be a springboard for other activities that will help the SIG advance research and practice in the area of global development.
