ICICT Objectives

The objective of ICICT is to support and stimulate active productive research which could strengthen the technical foundations of engineers and scientists in the continent, develop strong technical foundations and skills and lead to new small to medium enterprises within the African sub-continent. We also seek to encourage the emergence of functionally skilled technocrats within the continent.

The list is not exhaustive. Tutorials and Sessions which will impact on and enhance post graduate research within the continent will be considered. Training Workshops on research software tools such as Matlab, SPSS, Scilab, LINUX, Althium, Genesys, COMSOL Multiphysics and others are welcome. The conference also provides a forum for students to compete for best papers and receive an award. Registration fees for student authors are also discounted. We invite research papers, workshop proposals, and panel proposals on the following topics listed below.

Demonstrators and Products Tracks

ICICT has made provision in 2017 for display and demonstration of working software and hardware that are relevant to African manufacturing base. We will consider working prototypes from university students, staff and industry. The deadline for submission of the express of interest is 30th September 2018

 

Paper Submissions

Original research papers containing new research findings which have not been submitted concurrently to any other publication outlets such conferences, Journals and books are sought from authors. Full length papers must be limited for six pages A4 single-line spacing (10 point font size minimum) and formatted following the IEEE conference paper format. Student papers are also limited to between three and four pages A4 single-line spacing.

ICICT has adopted the IEEE referencing format for all its publications. Paper submission is via the conference site at:  http://icict.org.zm/ and the use of EDASAuthors should access EDAS through the conference site for all submissions and by all means try not to email papers directly to Track or Conference Chair persons as this makes reviewing of your papers messy and difficult. All papers submitted to the conference will be reviewed by at least two international reviewers. Papers which are registered and presented during the conference will be included in the conference proceedings with an ISBN to facilitate access and referencing.

Deadline of final paper submissions:                                        30th September 2018 

Post Conference Publications:

All papers accepted and presented at the conference will be submitted to Compendex and SCOPUS for indexing. If and when we secure the IEEE technical sponsorship. Reviewed papers which meet the IEEE requirements and presented during the conference will be forwarded to the IEEE for consideration for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore. Despite the above undertaking, authors whose papers are found to be technically relevant and suitable as possible journal publications will be invited to extend their ICICT conference papers to full length Journal papers of not less than 12 pages. Such extensions must ensure that the extended paper is clearly significantly different in contents from the paper presented during the conference. They will be further reviewed and if the extended papers are accepted by the Journals they will be included in special 2017 issues of:

  • Zambian ICT Journal (Published by ICT Society of Zambia)
  • African Journal of Information and Communication Technology;
  • African Journal of Informatics
  • Journal of Machine to Machine Communications (River Publishers, Denmark)
