ETD Visibility at a Global Scale

Join us, along with global leaders, from Wednesday, October 30th to Friday, November 1st, 2024 at Radisson Blu Mosi-Oa-Tunya Livingstone Resort, in Livingstone, Zambia for the 27thInternational Symposium on Electronic Theses and Dissertations. Learn about innovative approaches that make use of Electronic Theses and Dissertations (ETDs), including the use of modern-day Artificial Intelligence techniques such as Large Language Models and exploration of advances that will result in increased visibility of ETDs at a Global Scale.
The theme of ETD 2024 is "ETD Visibility at a Global Scale". Significant strides have been made in mainstreaming of ETDs, with a number of national and international initiatives initiated, however, the visibility of ETDs in other parts of the world is still low. In addition, the potential of ETDs beyond research and academia presents opportunities to enable more access to the knowledge contained within ETDs.
ETD 2024 2024 will be run in a hybrid mode: speakers and attendees will have the option to participate onsite or online.
