CENIT@EA Calls for Paper Submission to the 1st EAC Conference on Technological Advancement in Embedded and Mobile Systems (GIZ)

Embedded and Mobile Systems (EMoS) is among the top emerging digital trends in the EAC region. With that arises the need for students, academics, and researchers to publish their scientific discoveries on EMoS.

Recognizing the need for digital transformation in the EAC region, the Digital skills for an Innovative East African Industry Project (dSkills@EA) through the Center of Excellence for ICT in East Africa (CENIT@EA) hosted at the Nelson Mandela African Institution of Science and Technology (NM-AIST), hosts a conference dubbed “The 1st International Conference on Technological Advancement in Embedded and Mobile Systems (ICTA-EMoS)”. The conference aims to give an opportunity for profound research works and novel findings on EMoS to be published.

Planned to take place from 24 to 25 November 2022, the conference calls for submission of scientific papers for review. These papers will be presented and debated at the conference, while chosen ones will be included in the Springer Nature Publication, one of the leading global research, educational and professional publishers. Selected papers are to be published in 2023.

The 1st EMoS conference will provide a forum for young professionals, academics, researchers, and industry partners to network and discuss developing digital technologies in EMoS. Exhibitions and booths from partner institutions and industry will showcase recent digital technologies, innovations, developments, and support.
