First International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies and Development (ICTD2006)
May 25-26, 2006, Berkeley, California, U.S.A. http://sims.berkeley.edu/ictd2006

tremendous energy and resources behind these projects, scientifically sound research in this space is just beginning to emerge. What is the actual impact of ICT projects? What novel technology is required to meet development needs? What methodologies lead to success or failure of a project?
