May 2015


Dear Members and Friends of the WACREN Community,

Following the postponement of WACREN 2015 due to circumstances beyond our control, WACREN has received the offer from RITER, the NREN of Côte d’Ivoire, to host the event in Abidjan.

Unfortunately, clashes with various other events and calendar constraints makes it impossible to find a window that suits all partners.

After careful consideration, WACREN has therefore decided to cancel the event this year and to concentrate on the preparation of next year’s event that will be held on 16 – 18 March 2016. The host country and theme of the event will be announced at a later date.

Authors of the selected abstracts for WACREN 2015 will be contacted shortly.

WACREN wishes to thank all of those who planned to attend this year’s event and looks forward to welcoming them to WACREN 2016.
