Fraunhofer Portugal in AFRICOMM 2011

Fraunhofer Portugal is going to be present in the ‘3rd International ICST Conference on e-Infrastructure and e-Services for Developing Countries' occurring from November 23 to 24 in Zanzibar Islands, Tanzania.

Scope of the Conference

Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have proved to offer immense potential to development. However, designing, developing, and deploying infrastructures and solutions that are affordable and efficient when only limited resources are available is a very challenging task. This presents a setback for developing countries against reaping the benefits that ICTs offers.

AFRICOMM 2011 aims to bring together researchers, practitioners, and policy makers in ICT to discuss issues and trends, recent research, innovation advances and on-the-field experiences related to e-Infrastructure, e-Governance, e-Business, and enabling policy and regulations with a deep focus on developing countries.

The program will feature keynotes by Elias Towe (CMU) and Ntsibane Ntlatlapa (CSIR Meraka).

The conference has been supported by Fraunhofer Portugal since its beginnings in 2009, and we look forward to welcome you to Zanzibar Islands, Tanzania!
