ICT4D Postgraduate Symposium
ICT4D Collective is inaugurating an annual symposium for postgraduate students,
the first of which will take place at Royal Holloway, University of London
on 14th and 15th September 2006. This is open to all Master's, MPhil and
PhD students, and is designed above all to provide an informal environment
in which postgraduates can share their research findings and ideas.
details of the draft programme are now available here
symposium has three main aims:
encourage the sharing of research ideas and practices
among postgraduate students working in the field of ICT4D
provide an opportunity for postgraduates at all stages in their careers
to present their findings in a supportive atmosphere
enable postgraduate students at an early stage in their career to gain
advice and suggestions from those with greater research
symposium is open to all postgraduate students with interests in ICT4D.
We are especially encouraging the participation of Master's students as
well as MPhil and PhD students.
symposium will be held over two days,and will be divided into three main
sessions:Master's students, early stage MPhil/PhD research, final stage
of MPhil/PhD research. Precise details of sessions will depend on the
offers of papers received. Papers will be of 20 minutes length to ensure
maximum opportunity for discussion. A range of dinner locations will be
arranged for the night of the 14th September so that small group discussions
can continue through the evening.
symposium will be held at Royal Holloway,
University of London's campus near Windsor Great Park, to the west
of London. This is readily accessible by train from London (35 minutes
from Waterloo) and from Reading (43 minutes) for those arriving from
the west. It is only 20 minutes from London Heathrow airport for those
