Events will be hosted by the School of Computing and Informatics Technology at Makerere University, Kampala with face to face events happening both at Makerere and in Nairobi.
Two face to face events are planned (one in Kampala, one in Nairobi) in the pre-conference period. On-line events are planned during the conference and in the post-conference period.
Nairobi is noted as a centre of ICT activity on the continent due to the number of tech universities, start-ups, venture capital funds and tech organisations. Kampala is a converging point for many organisations (NGOs, Civil society, Institutions and Innovation hubs) using different participatory approaches to introduce and use technologies.
