It is my honour and pleasure to welcome you to the maiden edition of the International Conference on Information Communication Technology and its Application (ICTA 2016) tagged “ICT for Sustainable Development”. The Conference will provide a great opportunity for researchers and developers in academia and industry to explore their innovative ideas.

We must look ahead at today’s radical changes in technology not just as forecasters but as actors charged with designing and bringing about sustainable and acceptable world. New knowledge gives us power to change, thus recognizing the importance of Information Communication Technology (ICT) for narrowing the digital divide between developed and developing countries. The conference intends to foster the development and application of ICT for sustainable development.

ICT with its reach, richness and performance holds great promise. The Conference will focus on the developmental problems of our society that technology can address. Are the necessary functionalities and tools available or do they have to be developed? What should be the priorities and how can we structure the challenges ahead? Special sessions for the conference will be geared towards the sharing of experience and knowledge in the field of Computer Science, Cyber Security Science, Information and Media Technology, Library and Information Technology, Telecommunication Engineering, Computer Engineering and other fields closely related to the use of ICT as a tool. We welcome papers from the above fields and look forward to seeing you at the conference.
