AIS22 Call for PresentationThe African Internet Summit 2022 (AIS’22) Secretariat is pleased to announce the Call for Technical Presentation abstracts from the African Internet Community wishing to make presentations during the meeting that will take place from 30th May-3rd June 2022. Over the past two years, the meeting has been taking place online, however, AIS'22 will take a Hybrid format. Here, the focus is on seamless collaboration and on content sharing both in-room and online making the meetings as intuitive and straightforward as face-to-face meetings. Remote delegates will join the meeting online while In-person /onsite delegates will sit together in a dedicated meeting venue.
