This is a call for abstracts/presentations on the emerging “digital development” paradigm, with an initial deadline of 16th January 2019, for the UK Development Studies Association Conference. 

Papers that help to conceptualise, to analyse, to evidence, to critique and, overall, to build a picture of what this new "digital development" looks like; mapping emergent patterns - ways in which new digital technologies are changing the processes and structures of development; developing new theoretical perspectives; and linking to local and global trends.

The following timeline will be observed:

16th January 2019: prospective presenters to submit a “paper proposal” (title, author names & emails, short abstract of <300 characters; long abstract of <250 words) via the conference online form.  Track details and link to paper proposal here 

February: decision communicated on paper proposals

28th February: conference registration opens (early-bird discounts close 11 Apr)

19th -21nd June: conference
