25 ICT4D Conferences in 2016
This is my latest attempt at sketching out a calendar of ICT4D conferences scheduled for 2016. Thanks especially to Laurent Straskraba, Edgar Nsheega and to Richard Heeks and Larry Stillman for suggesting additions.
May and September look like peak conference months, but there are still a few more yet to announce. Let me know what's missing and I'll do my best to update.
So far, I am certain to attend ICT4D 2016 in Ann Arbor, but I'm otherwise uncommitted. But I do like the look of TicTec in Barcelona, Community Informatics in Italy, and the 1st African HCI conference in Nairobi.
