ICT and African Development: Challenges and Opportunities

NYU Africa House, AES (Audio Engineering Society), AFEA (African Finance and Economics Association), and CATER (Cost-Effective Appropriate Technologies for Emerging Regions) presented a one day workshop titled, “ICT and African Development: Challenges and Opportunities.” The workshop featured a set of general talks by social and computer scientists on ICT and African development that served as platforms for discussing the opportunities and challenges that ICT presents for African development. The goal of the workshop was to bring together a wide range of researchers and practitioners broadly interested in the topic of development and to encourage future collaborations. The workshop was organized into six sessions featuring two to three short presentations, each followed by a longer discussion on the research possibilities and challenges of the area.
