Call for Abstracts is now open

We invite you to participate in WEEF-GEDC 2020 and submit an abstract. Guidelines for submission may be found here:

Key Date: The deadline for submission of abstracts is 20 April 2020 

After review of the abstracts, selected submissions will be invited to submit a full paper based on the abstract, which will undergo a second round of peer review.  Those that wish to only submit a revised Abstract to the conference may do so. All peer-reviewed full conference papers presented will be published in the conference proceedings, which will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore.  A selection of conference papers will be given the opportunity to be upgraded for a special edition of the SAIEE Africa Research Journal, which will then be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore. 

Call for Mini-Symposia is now open

We also invite you to submit proposals for a mini-symposium.  A mini-symposium consists of a full 90-minute conference session organised by submitters.  We welcome proposals for innovative uses of this time.  Guidelines for submission may be found here:

Key Date: The deadline for submission of proposals for mini-symposia is 1 June 2020
