AfricaGIS 2019 Conference in Kigali Rwanda 18 - 22 November 2019

Registration Opens 2 April 2019

AfricaGIS is the largest Geospatial, Science and Technology conference on the African Continent.  The conference is held every two years and is organised by EIS-Africa, a pan African non-profit organisation. The AfricaGIS Conference and Exhibition series have become a flagship Geospatial Information marketplace in Africa. For the past 20 years, the series have contributed immensely to the development of skills and institutional capacity in geoinformation across the continent.
AfricaGIS has built a reputation for excellence in content and offers geospatial specialists opportunities to better exchange ideas and learn from global peers.

The application of science, technology and innovation is globally recognized as fundamental enablers of national socio-economic transformation. Over the last two decades, the development of infrastructure for communication and ICT-enabled development strategies have played a major role in the proliferation of use of science and information technologies in Rwanda, as well as the rest of Africa.

AfricaGIS 2019 will therefore be hosted by the University of Rwanda and supported by UNECA, UNGGIM Africa, GMES in Africa, GEO and Digital Earth Africa.
