ITU’s Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU–T) is calling for original academic papers that propose innovative ways to foster digital inclusion. Prizes worth a total of USD 10 000 will be granted to the best papers, and certificates awarded to young authors who are still studying for doctorates. Accepted papers will be presented during Kaleidoscope 2009, which takes place on 31 August–1 September in Mar del Plata, Argentina. The best papers will be evaluated for potential publication in IEEE Communications Magazine. The deadline for papers to be submitted is 15 January 2009.
Like the first such event in May 2008, Kaleidoscope 2009 will bring together academics, researchers and experts working on standardization of ICT. They will look at technologies, services and applications that can capitalize on next-generation networks and promote universal, sustainable and affordable access by all. Social and regulatory challenges will be examined too.
The conference is being organized by ITU–T in collaboration with the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
