13th International Conference on Social Implications of Computers in Developing Countries
Conference Theme - Openness in ICT4D: Critical Reflections on Future Directions
Jetwing Blue, Negombo - Sri Lanka, 20-22 May, 2015
The conference theme of “Openness in ICT4D: Critical reflections on future directions” will seek to critically discuss different facets of open and openness, whether they represent a hype or reality, what promises they hold for creating a better world, and what are the challenges we face in achieving the promised potential. To do this we welcome contributions from a wide range of perspectives, discussing for example potential tensions between open source and open data, the role of actors like the open society initiative in promoting openness as a value, and positive and negative freedoms.
