The National Commission on Research, Science and Technology (NCRST) sponsored N$48 000 towards the International Conference on Emerging Trends in Networks and Computer Communications 2015, currently being held in Windhoek, from 17 – 19 May 2015.  

 

The Conference, hosted by the Polytechnic of Namibia School of Computing
and Information, is held under the theme, “Emerging Trends in Networks, and Computer Communications.” The conference aims at shedding more light and contributing towards informing on the current and emerging state of the art technologies. The ETNCC2015 will deliberate on a diverse range of high quality scientific papers and topics, and showcase various industry engagements through exhibitions, which will bring practicality to the conference environment.

 

“This conference today gives us an opportunity to take advantage of the support that our policy makers are giving to us in order to harness the potential benefit of science, technology and innovation to solve our socio-economic challenges. The National Commission on Research, Science and Technology has allocated N$ 47 million, approximately 36% of the NCRST budget for 2015/2016, towards funding research and innovation. As such, this initiative fits in very well with national efforts the NCRST is making to establish and strengthen a national system that promotes, develops, coordinates and informs research science, technology and innovation towards a knowledge based society”, said Dr Eino Mvula, CEO of the NCRST at the official opening.  

 

“Let me seize this opportunity to thank the members of the organising committee for their timeless efforts the reviewers who have aided in selecting high quality research papers of IEEE standard, and all our sponsors who have enabled the success of this conference. We feel greatly honoured to be hosting this high end international conference, and hope that the conference be fruitful, informative and a ripe environment for creating lasting synergies for future applied research in many sectors of our economies in view of contributing visibly to the world at large”, said Prof Hippolyte N. Muyingi, ETNCC 2015 General Chair.
