CSE590F: Computing and the Developing World Seminar

This quarter we will focus on ICTD review papers from the past decade. Discussion focus on:

  1. The perspective of the review paper and how they define the field of ICTD
  2. How has the field changed in the years since the paper was published
  3. What are the implications for future work

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