The IEEE AFRICON is pleased to announce the 11th edition of the IEEE Region 8 flagship conference of the African continent to be held from 9 to 12 September 2013. The conference will take place on the beautiful tropical island of Mauritius rated as one of the top tourist destinations and famous for its calmness, peace and harmony. Located about 2,000 kilometers off the south-east coast of Africa, the island, which is known as the Star and Key of the Indian Ocean, harbors warm turquoise lagoons along with endless white beaches and an unmatched landscape.
The natural beauty and warmth of the island matches well with the theme of the conference which is “Sustainable Engineering for a Better Future”. At a time where sustainability and green practices are considered as integral aspects of engineering practices and gaining increasing importance, the conference will provide an ideal platform for professionals, academia and industry from IEEE Region 8 and all over the world to meet and discuss the latest research works and findings.
