EAI International Conference for Research, Innovation and Development for Africa

June 20–21, 2017 | Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe


The ACRID 2017 conference track covering Electronics Applications is a forum for industrialists, researchers, academics, device designers, fabricators and other practitioners with the aim of exploiting common synergies. Industrialists report on problems related to production of microelectronic devices, challenges and opportunities presented by increased integration, biological chips, challenges involved with gigahertz operation, solid state memories and disks. Other relevant areas are Signal Processing, System on Chip, Low Power consumption devices, Intelligent, Embedded Systems Design, Data Encryption algorithms, and Components for mobile phone technology. Researchers and academics come with proposed innovative solutions to these problems utilising models, experimental setups, software tools and demonstrations. There is ample scope for the exploration and exchange of knowledge in this field through scientific talks, industry discussions, technical tutorials and panels. The conference covers all aspects of electronic devices and systems research and practice, including theory, management, applications and technology, and will bring together renowned experts.




ACRID 2017 explicitly encourages papers that reflect the interdisciplinary nature of mining and transportation.


The thematic areas of this track in which contributions are sought include, but are not limited to, those listed below. Subtopics in this track are assigned to a Technical Programme Committee (PC) member  will promote it and lead the review processes taking into consideration the characteristics of the particular thematic area.
