EAI International Conference on Innovations and Interdisciplinary Solutions for Underserved Area


The first edition of the conference (to be held on April 11-12, 2017 in Dakar Senegal) will focus on (but is not limited to) the following five main topics (details available in the appendix):
1-Innovative sustainable energy solutions and energy as a mean for economic development
2-ICT as an enabler for economic growth and social development in underserved areas
3-Improving sustainability concept in underserved areas
4-Innovation and Entrepreneurship in underserved areas
5-“Citizen” as leverage for scientific research and development in underserved areas
We invite innovative and unpublished contributions at the intersection(s) of the five areas above. Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by an international team of experts and accepted papers will be invited to be discussed during the first annual meeting in April, 2017. Finally, all accepted papers will be published by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library, one of the world's largest scientific libraries.
