The conference will bring together local and internationally-renowned scientists in the EDC and related fields. It will also provide an academic forum for scientists and post graduate students to present their work in poster format and exchange ideas with leaders in the field.
The conference will provide an excellent setting for intellectual development and discussions on the challenges being faced not only on a global level but to also focus on challenges facing developing nations in Africa.
The Mini Symposium on the day before the Conference is aimed at junior scientists and post graduate students. It includes a student mentor session which will allow the participants the opportunity to discuss their thoughts and ideas with the experts.
