The University of Salford is delighted to host the European Regional Conference on the Social Implications of Computers in Developing Countries online.
Working Group 9.4 of the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP) attracts ethnographers, anthropologists, technologists, ethicists, and engineers interested in the issues around Information and Communication Technology (ICT) and international development. The work of the group often targets countries on the OECD DAC list of official development assistance recipients, but we are also interested in other communities or groups that are marginalised or disadvantaged in their relationships with technologies.
We seek contributions disseminating new and unpublished research from across the full range of interests within the working group.
Submitted papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted to another conference or journal for consideration. Accepted papers will be presented at the conference and included in the conference proceedings published in the IFIP AICT series by SpringerNature.
All papers must be written in English. Submissions should be at most 12 pages long in total including references and appendices. We encourage authors to obtain and use a free ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) identifier. ORCID hosts a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities to these identifiers.

Submissions can be uploaded to the conference management system at:
