ICTD Reception

We invite you to apply to participate in the Young Researchers Reception at ICTDX in Ahmedabad on the evening of January 4, 2019. The goal of this reception is to bring together young researchers in an informal environment and provide the space to interact with colleagues working in ICTD and experts who have been through the journey. We wish to provide a space for networking where you can chat with future collaborators and mentors to forge long-lasting bonds.  

The Young Researchers Reception is for ICTD scholars who are in the early stages of their research (age no bar). This may include students (Undergraduate, Masters, Ph.D.) as well as industry professionals who have recently started pursuing research in the field of ICTD. The reception will not include formal research presentations, but we do plan to have some fun ice-breaking sessions and look forward to your participation in the same.

If you are keen to attend the reception, please indicate interest during registration. We would like you to share, in this form, a narrative of your research interests in ICTD (100-500 words). If you haven’t yet started doing research in the field, please mention the areas you are excited about in ICTD, and why you wish to pursue this research.

We plan to host 50 young researchers at the event and selection will be on the basis of the forms we receive.
