2018 International Tech4Dev Conference

The UNESCO Chair invites authors from research, industry, policy or civil society to submit their abstracts under one of the Conference’s Breakout Sessions. You can find more information on the Conference’s Sessions by downloading the Second Call for Papers (Extended Abstracts) Document.

Extended abstracts should emphasize the value of technological innovation while also acknowledging the limits of technology in generating inclusive social and economic development.

The extended abstract should include:

  • A focused description of research objectives and research methodology, or if appropriate, description of case study objectives and outcomes.
  • Potential development impact
  • Recommendations for future research and application in practice

Abstracts will need to adhere to the 1,000 word limit using the prescribed template and should be submitted by using the Tech4Dev 2018 Online Submission System no later than 5 January 2018.

Extended abstracts which do not adhere to these requirements will not be considered.
