2nd AFRICAN WINTER SCHOOL ON INFORMATION THEORY AND COMMUNICATIONS
August 16-21, 2015
Protea Hotel Kruger Gate Skukuza, South Africa

Call for Participation

It is with great pleasure that we announce the 2nd African Winter School on Information Theory and Communications to be held
at the Kruger National Park from 16 to 21 August, 2015. The goal of the winter school is to increase co-operation and knowledge
sharing between African students and universities. Doctoral students and young staff members, from Africa and other continents,
are encouraged to present and discuss their ongoing research with international experts. Students are welcome to make
presentations irrespective of the phase of their research. All submitted abstracts will be scrutinized by the technical chairs for
suitability. The number of topics will not be limited and we hope to have a wide range of presentations in the Information Theory
and Communications field. Study leaders are also encouraged to attend in order to establish more high-level co-operation
between African and other universities.

This event will be held in parallel with the First IEEE Seminar on Future Directions in Information Theory and Communications
(see previous post for details).
