The Society for Multidisciplinary & Advanced Research Techniques (SMART)  & Other Institutional Partners


The Society for Multidisciplinary & Advanced Research Techniques (SMART) in collaboration with ICITD, USA and other collaborating institutional partners sets up the Computing, Information Systems & Development Informatics Journal as a medium for reporting research and collaborative efforts that globally address the multi-prong challenges of Africa and other parts of the world  through ICT-based solutions which have contextual and cultural relevances. We seek to increase the influence of IT and Allied professionals among decision-makers in Africa by using collaboration and mentoring as viable tools for promoting informed policy on national and international ICT issues. Our membership cuts across academics, scientists, engineers, professionals, and businesses in the information technology and allied professions. Organizations and individuals who share a common interest in enabling Africa to participate as knowledge producers and not just knowledge consumers in today’s information age are welcome to join the society.

The collaborations aims to provide a forum for interaction and knowledge sharing in the teaching, research and practice of ICT for Development in Africa.

To establish a global network of academics and practitioners who will participate as producers of knowledge on the teaching, research and practice of ICT for Development in Africa.
