EAI AFRICOMM 2020 is the 12th edition of the European Alliance for Innovation (EAI) International Conference on e-Infrastructure and e‐Services in Africa and is part of AFRINIC’s research collaboration programme. We often collaborate with an academic partner to organise an annual scientific conference. The conference is set to take place online with live proceedings and virtual Q&A sessions.

AFRINIC would like to request you to participate in a short survey to help improve and develop a new version of MyAFRINIC. The data collected will inform the development and functionalities of MyAFRINIC.

It will only take you a few moments to complete the survey at https://vox.afrinic.net/782791

Thank you in advance for your contributions and assistance in this important exercise.

About the event

The Africa Cyber Defense Forum is a continental platform for public-private cooperation. The forum engages top level government, technology experts, business leaders and other leaders of society to shape the continental, regional and industry agendas in the African cyber space.This year’s theme is 'A More Secure World, More Business Activity, and More Jobs’.


AFRINIC invites you to its upcoming webinar on 'Internet Infrastructure Support in Times of Crisis'. During this time of crisis, there has been a significant increase in Internet traffic and changes in utilisation patterns. This webinar will bring a detailed perspective on how the Internet infrastructure performed during this time of crisis and will be held in partnership with Packet Clearing House and the United States Telecommunication Training Institute.

Over the past eight years, as a result of a strong peering ecosystem enabled by IXPs in Kenya and Nigeria, the ratio of localized traffic roughly flipped from 30 % local / 70% international in 2012 to 70% local / 30% international today. 
This achievement significantly fulfills the Internet Society and African Internet community’s joint goal for 80% of Africa’s Internet traffic to be locally accessible by 2020 (“80/20 by 2020”).
