Call for Poster Papers

The EAI AFRICOMM 2021 Conference Committee is thrilled to invite submissions for posters contributing to e-Infrastructure and e-Service for Developing Countries.

This is an exceptional opportunity to highlight your ideas in a less formal setting and share them with your colleagues, practitioners, and research community. A poster presentation is an effective way to discuss the idea before a research paper is developed.

EAI AFRICOMM 2021 will be held as a fully-fledged online conference (with an on-site possibility). We expect presenters to present their posters both on-site and videoconference-based on a scheduled time.

A poster should be one page in PDF format and it should contain title, affiliation, abstract and content. Each poster is to be accompanied by a short paper of 6-11 pages.
