Hi All,

I would also like to take this opportunity to mention that Professor
Kurtis's and his co-authors' paper, " Fresh Insights: User Research Towards
a Market Information Service for Bihari Vegetable Farmers" has been
accepted in ICTD 2019 !

Many Congratulations, Professor Kurtis and team ! :)

This will be a worthwhile and interesting paper to read !

Best regards,
