Thank you for a successful WACREN 2019 Conference!

WACREN wishes to thank members of the community, speakers, partners and sponsors who have all contributed to the success of the WACREN 2019 Conference held in Accra, Ghana, on 15-16 March 2019, preceded by the 2nd LIBSENSE workshop on 11-12 March, and the AfricaConnect2 Admin meeting and the public WACREN Board meeting on 13 March. 

The WACREN week was closed by the public WACREN Annual General Meeting.

The event was attended by more than 150 participants from 28 countries, with 24 excellent speakers selected by the Programme Committee whose members we also thank for their invaluable contribution.

All presentations are available online at https://indico.wacren.net/event/71/page/70-programme, and photos and videos at https://bit.ly/2FC9UEa.

Thank you to all our sponsors for their support: Microsoft (Platinum), Glo and MainOne (Gold), XON (Silver), ICANN and International Networks/Indiana University (Bronze), and Vodafone (Connectivity).

A special thank you to GARNET that has been a great host, as well as to the AfricaConnect2 project.

Don’t miss WACREN 2020 where we will celebrate WACREN @10. We will have another great host: Agence pour le Développement du Numérique (ADN). So, we hope to see you all again in Cotonou, Benin, in March 2020!
