UbuntuNet-Connect 2011

November 23-25, 2011
Safari Park Hotel, Kenya, Nairobi

Theme : access for success

The UbuntuNet-Connect Annual Conference is a major calendar event, starting from humble beginnings four years ago, and growing each year to what became a world class event in Johannesburg last year : UbuntuNet-Connect 2010 brought together key stakeholders from around the continent and the world and provided a rich environment for learning and networking. The conference was closed by Mrs Vera Brenda Ngosi, Director, Directorate of Human Resources Science and Technology, African Union Commission. In her closing remarks, Mrs Ngosi commended the positive energy, interaction, and lessons shared during the conference, and challenged the participants to redouble their efforts to ensure access for success. Access for Success : This was taken up by the Alliance as a battle cry, and has been adopted as the theme for UbuntuNet-Connect 2011.

Access alone does not create success : it is the collaboration so enabled and the full exploitation of advanced e-infrastructures that will lead to success. While maintaining our traditional major areas of coverage, UbuntuNet-Connect 2011 will dwell also on emerging networks and collaboration in Africa in order to spotlight the early adopters in exploiting the growing e-infrastructure and cheaper regional and global connectivity.
