UbuntuNet-Connect, the annual conference of UbuntuNet Alliance returns in November in the famous tourist destination country of Madagascar. This year, the flagship conference will be held under the theme: NRENs: "Facilitating Collaboration in the Digital Space." The conference, which is the 12th in the series of the UbuntuNet-Connect conferences, will be hosted by the Research and Education Network for Academic and Learning Activities, iRENALA, the NREN of Madagascar. 

UbuntuNet-Connect brings together practitioners in the research and education networking community, researchers, policy makers, academicians, connectivity providers, and a pool of expertise from across Africa and beyond. In previous years, the conference has attracted sponsorship from leading commercial companies and service providers.

This year, the conference has brought exciting changes to the programme with interested organisations and companies invited to submit proposals for sessions apart from the customary Call for Abstracts. Thematic workshops, capacity building activities and administration meetings and social events have all been lined up as pre-conference and co-located events. Companies and organisation wishing to enhance their visibility to our audience of over 250 participants can do so by choosing a category of sponsorship in our Call for Sponsorship.
