Fraunhofer Portugal participating in AFRICOMM 2010

Fraunhofer Portugal is going to be present in the ‘2nd International ICST Conference on e-Infrastructure and e-Services for Developing Countries' occurring from November 25 to 26 in Cape Town, South Africa.


Scope of the Conference

Deploying efficient and effective infrastructures and solutions when limited resources are available is a challenging task and a key-enabler for the diffusion of ICT in developing countries. The aim of this conference is bringing together international researchers, public officers, policy makers and practitioners in ICT to discuss issues and trends, recent research, innovation advances and on-the-field experiences related to e-Governance, e-Infrastructure, and e-Business with a focus on developing countries.

AFRICOMM 2010, the second conference of the series, is organized into three Tracks, two of them organized as Research Tracks (on Information and Communication Infrastructures for Developing Countries and e-Services for Developing Countries, respectively) and one as Policy & Governance Track. The Research Tracks will consist of presentations of research findings in defined themes proposed for the conference. Submitted papers will be double blind peer-reviewed scientific papers, which will be published by Springer in the LNICST series. Policy Track, on the other hand, will be based on panel discussions, which will be selected from 2-page extended abstracts.

In this event Fraunhofer Portugal will have the opportunity to present the results of its A4D initiative, resulting from the partnership with Universidade Eduardo Mondlane of Mozambique.
