CUT hosted AFRICATEK 2022 an International Conference on emerging technologies for developing countries

The Central University of Technology hosted the 5th edition of the International Conference on 05 and 06 December on Emerging Technologies for Developing Countries, otherwise known as AFRICATEK 2022.

The European Alliance manages the Conference for Innovation (EAI), and selecting host institutions is based on a competitive process.   Its theme was set in line with CUT’s 4th Industrial Revolution agenda and has seen extraordinary growth since its inception as an important forum for academics and researchers.

Presentations by authors as well as postgraduate students from across five African countries were presented at the Conference. The presentations reported studies that mostly focused on the nexus between 4IR and the application areas of agriculture, SMMEs, health, environment, and cities.  

The proceedings of the high-quality papers presented at this Conference will be published by the world-renowned Springer for indexing by Web of Science, Compendex, Scopus, EU Digital Library, Google Scholar, DBLP, and more.

Under the stewardship of Professor Muthoni Masinde, Head of the Department of Information Technology at CUT, Conference General Chair, the Conference achieved the set of objectives of agreeing on a common programme of action to leverage 4IR technologies to drive socio-economic advancement within the African context.

This award is determined through the EAI credits that are awarded to authors based on an anonymous review process as well as voted by the conference attendees.
