Call For Papers

EAI AFRICOMM 2021 will be held as a fully-fledged online conference (with an on-site possibility).
If the local situation allows it, the event will take place on-site in its original location with an option for all authors to present remotely.
In any case, all matters related to publication and indexing will remain unchanged.

Scope

Deploying efficient and effective ICT infrastructures, solutions, and services when limited resources are available is a daunting task. This has been a topic of great concern to researchers and practitioners alike, who are working to promote the diffusion of ICT in developing countries. EAI AFRICOMM 2021 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 and e-Services along with their associated policy and regulations with a deep focus on developing countries.
