The ACM Annual Conference on Information Communication Technologies for Development (ICTD) 2017 to be held in Pakistan, hosted by ITU. It is the first of its kind major CS conference in Pakistan. This conference is going to happen from 16-19 November, Lahore.
The last decade has proven very significant in terms of progress for the IT industry in Pakistan. With the opening of incubators, accelerators and angel funding networks, there has been an exponential growth in tech startups coming out of Pakistan and raising venture funding from abroad. However, the proliferation of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to help improve community living standards and improve structural deficiencies of the system is in its infancy. The Punjab IT Board (PITB) and the Information Technology University (ITU) have been pioneers in developing, testing and scaling up ICT applications in areas of healthcare, education, agriculture and livestock, and governance.
