Information and Communication Technologies for Development

[摘要]

The ICT4D Centre at the University of Cape Town (UCT) functions as an academic hub for researchers focused on creating solutions that address socio-technical problems in South Africa, across Africa and in other developing regions. The Centre is a multi-disciplinary environment that seeks to produce new technologies for the developing world, while also studying the ways in which existing and emerging technologies affect and are appropriated by groups of people, particularly in under-resourced communities. We have received international recognition for our work, including best paper awards, scholarships for our students, various prizes and grants to support our research. In 2013, we were proud hosts of ICTD2013 and DEV-4, the two most prominent conferences in the ICT4D field, as well as Interact2013, a key IFIP conference in human-computer interaction.
