About AFRICATEK 2018

AFRICATEK 2018 targets the use of emerging technologies (e.g. cloud computing, IoT, data analytics, green computing, Smart grid etc.) in developing countries. Building innovative solutions and services based on cutting edge technologies is very challenging in developing countries for several reasons. The limited IT infrastructure and Internet penetration are two of the key hindering barriers.

The goal of this conference is to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia and industry to share their results and ideas on how to benefit the developing world from the technologies’ advances despite the existing limitations.
