Information and communications technology for development (ICT4D), which is devoted to leveraging ICT for economic, social, and governance development, has attracted wide attention from scholars and practitioners. However, gaps remain to be addressed in terms of bridging the connections between information, technological development and adoption, and people for development. Through this workshop, we will develop research ideas and foster collaboration opportunities across information fields, which will lay the groundwork for a JASIST special issue on ICT4D. The ASIS&T Annual Meeting provides an excellent forum to discuss this crucial area together with the academics and industry peers.
