Akwa Ibom State University on the World Stage

Share This

In the course of the month of September 2017, Akwa Ibom State University played a lead role in the 28th Joint Annual conference of the  International  Information Management Association conference (IIMA) and the 4th Annual International Conference on Information Technology and Economic Development (ICITED). 

The event was hosted by the University of West of Scotland, UK and ran from Monday (11/09/2017) to Wednesday (13/09/2017).  The Joint Conference was aimed at promoting the dynamic exchange of ideas among leading researchers, educators, developers and practitioners who shared their research and innovations in education, business and government. It was devoted to presenting and examining how information technology is aiding modern society to tackle complex problems in a smart way. Little wonder why the conference was aptly themed “Smart Systems for Complex Problems”.
