What’s ICTD?

It is a research conference exploring the role of information and communication technologies in global development. The multidisciplinary and multi-sectorial nature of ICTD work is reflected by this conference, along with representation from a huge range of areas (anthropology, communication, computer science, design, economics, electrical engineering, geography, global health, information science, political science, sociology, and many others), with addition to participation from academia, industry, civil society, and government.

The Information Technology University and the Punjab IT Board (PITB) have been developing, testing, and scaling up ICT applications in healthcare, education, agriculture and livestock, and governance areas.The previous decade has proven to be very significant in terms of progress for the IT industry in the country. There has been an exponential growth in technology startups coming from Pakistan and raising venture funding from foreign countries with the start of incubators, accelerators and angel funding networks.

Since the year 2006, ICTD conferences have been held at Berkeley with addition to CA (USA), Bangalore (India), Doha (Qatar), London (United Kingdom), Atlanta, GA (USA), Cape Town, (South Africa), Singapore and Ann Arbor, MI (USA).
