CSE590F: Computing and the Developing World Seminar

In 590f this quarter each week we will focus on an individual who has made significant contributions to the ICTD/DEV community. The presenter for the week will provide a paper from the researcher for everyone to read and then during discussion put that paper into context. How did the researcher enter ICTD, what are their contributions, what is their main area of focus etc.

The seminar meets Tuesdays, 1:30-2:30 in CSE 203.
