Host Institutions:  The ICT University USA/Cameroon; International Center for IT and Development, Southern University USA, Makerere University Business School Uganda

Theme: Harnessing ICT in Education for Global Competitiveness

(All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings under an ISBN reference)
The International Conference on ICT for Africa is an annual conference that brings together stakeholders of the educational and industrial sectors in Africa, with the aim of reflecting on how to transfer, diffuse and adopt the Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) within the African context and other developing countries. This years’ conference theme about ICT and global competitiveness challenges us to centralize ICT research within the context of technological determinism that is under constant attack from those who believe human behavioral change and not communication technologies are shaping research in ICT. We hope the paradigm shift that is presently affecting ICT research regardless of discipline will be harnessed by budding scholars and established ICT scholars during this years conference in Cameroon. The ICT4Africa 2014 consortium seeks to bring together registered masters and doctoral students to present papers that revolve around this year’s theme.
