Preface

Welcome to the 4th Annual 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 approximately 250 members, over 50  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. A total of 31 papers were submitted to this year’s  workshop by authors from all over the world. These papers were reviewed by at least two and often three reviewers.  Every paper underwent one round of revision before being accepted for inclusion in the workshop proceedings. The 22 accepted papers are grouped into 6 sessions as shown below under “Workshop at a Glance” with each session containing 3 or 4 papers. The full text of each paper is available on the SIG GlobDev web site and will be included in the AIS eLibrary.

We wish to sincerely thank the 39 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 their patience in managing the many iterations and changes during the development of  the online proceedings.
  • Kurt deMaagd for placing the SIG GlobDev Proceedings on the AIS eLibrary and the Michigan State University Department of Telecommunications for funding the acquisition of an ISBN number.
  • 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 previous workshops in Paris, Phoenix and Saint Louis were very successful. We hope that this workshop will be no exception and that it will provide a springboard for other activities that will help the SIG advance research and practice in the area of global development. 

Very special thanks to our sponsors, Ryerson University and the Taylor & Francis Group, for their generous support.
