Demonstrators and Products Tracks

PACT has made provision in 2017 for display and demonstration of working software and hardware that are relevant to African manufacturing base and learning environment. We will also consider working prototypes from university students, staff and industry.

Paper Submissions

Original research papers containing new research findings which have not been submitted concurrently to any other publication outlets such conferences, Journals and books are sought from authors. Full length papers must be limited for six A4 single-line spacing pages (10 point font size minimum) and formatted following the IEEE conference paper format. Student papers are also limited to between three and four A4 single-line spacing pages.


PACT has adopted the IEEE referencing format for all its publications. Paper submission is through Easy Chair via the conference site at PACT 2017 Easy Chair Submission

Authors should access Easy Chair through the conference site for all submissions and by all means try not to email papers directly to Track or Conference Chair persons as this makes reviewing of your papers messy and difficult.
