Fraunhofer Portugal in AFRICOMM 2012

 

Fraunhofer Portugal participated in the AFRICOMM 2012, the Fourth International IEEE EAI Conference on e‐Infrastructure and e‐Services for Developing Countries, that took place in Yaoundé, Cameroon from November 12th to 14th 2012.

Besides chairing several sessions of the conference, FhP AICOS presented PostboxWeb, a framework for occasionally connected and shared Android smartphones, designed and developed by AICOS researchers Anna Kress, Oleksandr Kruk and Rui Teixeira.

Scope

Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) have proven 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 2012 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.
