Top ICT4D Conferences of 2015
As usual I have had a go at putting together a calendar of ICT4D conferences scheduled for the year ahead.
With many conferences still to announce details it already looks like a bumper harvest with May, as ever, looking to be the busiest month.
I plan to go to the Openness in ICT4D conference in Sri Lanka. There is a particularly interesting stream on critical approaches to ICT4D. I'm hoping to meet other geeks with critiques there.
