International Conference on Advances in ICT for Emerging Regions (ICTer) is the successor to the seminal International Information Technology Conference (IITC) held in Sri Lanka since 1998. It provides a platform where research done in ICT is presented by both local and foreign Computer Scientists and IT Professionals. This year we have participants from Germany, Australia, Sweden, Japan, New Zealand, Taiwan, United Kingdom, Singapore and India.

In order to get wider international participation and to promote computing research in the fast emerging regions of the world especially in Asia-Pacific, it was decided to partner with Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). The proceeding of the conference are distributed both in print and electronic form. The articles are published throw IEEE explorer and linked to Google scholar and selected papers are published in a special edition of the ICTer Journal with a global audience.
