A lot happening this week for our ISG team. We’re attending the annual International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) and Development. The conference brings together software developers, entrepreneurs and development organizations to present new innovations in information technology to support global development.
The conference is co-located with AMC DEV, a conference aimed at providing an international forum for research in the design and implementation of ICTs for social and economic development. Our collaboration with the University of Washington’ Computer Science & Engineering Department resulted in a paper that is being presented at AMC DEV, titled “Digitizing Paper Forms with Mobile Imaging Technologies.” In addition, ODK Scan (formerly called mScan) will be demonstrated during the technology demo session at the ICTD conference. Congratulations to lead author/presenter of the paper and mScan demonstrator Nicola Dell, who is completing her PhD at the university.
Jessica Crawford and Timoteo Chaluco of VillageReach are also authors on the paper, which is available here.
