Information Technology for Development (ITD) research focuses on the use of information technology infrastructures to bring about economic, social, and human development. In essence, the ITD research provides insight for policy makers to facilitate the achievement of socio-economic development goals by increasing financial investments and stimulating business activities in their regions. Papers in this mini-track are invited for consideration in the ITD Journal which makes contributions in ITD research to what is known about improvements in the lives of people through their use of ICTs. In particular, innovative applications of IT in under-privileged regions, where resources are limited, comprise research contributions under this domain. ITD research also provides guidelines for businesses looking to use IT infrastructures to support their business strategies in these regions.
