Call For Papers


The West African Symposium on Technology, Science, Sustainability, and Computing, TSSC 2015, is devoted to reviewing current achievements and trends that have the ability to affect Africa and other developing nations. The main purpose of the international symposium is to discuss in a unique and collaborative setting a broad range of topics.

The quality of presentations is very high and lively discussions take place during the different sessions between computer scientists, technologists, and drivers of sustainability, corroborating the multidisciplinary of the research activities around micro/nanotechnologies for sensors and devices. Past conference success is due to the help of many people, groups, and institutions.

The symposium will include a few 40-minute general review talks to introduce the current problems, and 20-minute talks to discuss new experimental and theoretical results. A series of 15-minute talks discuss the ongoing student research from students in the West African region. There are also some general talks about the future directions of scientific research on cyber security, sustainable design, laws, policies, and computing. Additionally, there will be hands on workshops that everyone can participate in.

For those that participate virtually there will be recorded sessions on Google Talk that will be archived online for all to view.


Potential topics include, but are not limited to: 1) New trends in computing, 2) information systems, and 3) other technological advances Systems design Innovations in science Open source software and hardware, and 4) Sustainability Educational trends in the fields of science and technology. For students they may submit on any technical subject matter area however high preference will be given to those in computing. The subject focus should be on science and technology in emerging nations. If you have questions concerning your topic area email us at
