Preface

 

We are pleased to welcome you to the 5th 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 three-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. A total of 24 papers were submitted to the 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 18 accepted papers are grouped into 6 sessions as shown below under “Workshop at a Glance” with each session containing 3 papers. The full text of each paper is available on the SIG GlobDev web site and will be included in the AIS eLibrary.
