IST-Africa 2011 will focus on the Role of ICT for Africa's Development and specifically on Applied ICT research topics addressing major societal and economic challenges, which is part of the European Commission's Information Communications Technologies (ICT) Theme of FP7. The goals of the IST-Africa Conference Series are Community Building to facilitate EU-African research cooperation and successful exploitation of research results.

Papers in the conference aim at stimulating take-up of RTD results by industry, Small and Medium Sized Businesses and the public sector, promoting knowledge sharing between commercial organizations, government agencies and the research community, and exchanging experiences about the current state of eAdoption at a sectoral, national or regional level. With it, the European Research Area (ERA) will open up to Africa to get a deeper insight into issues surrounding the use of ICT to achieve better government. 

Melanie Bicking will present a paper on eParticipation, which is related to the online stakeholder involvement activities of OCOPOMO.
