ACIST 2017 - CAPE TOWN, SOUTH AFRICA, 10th – 11th July 2017

The African Society is increasingly becoming networked with information technology (IT); and this is producing patterns and dynamics in technology, innovation, modernization and development. The African Networked Society (ANS) speaks of IT networks intermeshing with the African society of individuals, organizations and nations. The ANS is generating tensions between local, national and transnational flows of people, information and policies. It represents a new platform that enables researchers and practitioners to take new perspectives to pertinent technological, organizational, and developmental issues in Africa

ANS enables more efficient and effective creation and distribution of digital content, applications and services across Africa that will benefit the people of Africa greatly. Therefore, it can be exploited by individuals, organizations, and individuals to accelerate the flow and exchange of ideas, policies, and cultures to achieve socio-economic advancement of Africa.

The 2017 edition of ACIST aims to facilitate the achievement and exploitation of the ANS through continuous IT innovation and deployment in Africa. The conference brings together researchers, practitioners, and educators in Information Systems and Technology to present research and development works and share ideas that enhance innovation and application of IT in Africa.
