[InetBib] Conference Announcement "Frontiers in African Digital Research" at Bayreuth University, Germany

Dear Colleagues and Interested Parties,

The Section "Digital Solutions" of the Africa Multiple Cluster of Excellence at 
Bayreuth University /Germany welcomes you to participate at our first 
International Conference "Frontiers in African Digital Research". The 
conference will take place from 30 January to 1 February 2020 at the 
Iwalewahaus/Institute of African Studies in Bayreuth.

The Africa Multiple Cluster of Excellence, established at the University of 
Bayreuth in January 2019, aims to reconfigure African studies based on a new 
conceptual framework that foregrounds multiplicity and relationality to rethink 
notions of diversity, plurality and connectivity in its continuous relational 
processes and knowledge production also in the digital sphere by establishing a 
semantic driven digital knowledge information system for the interdisciplinary 
research projects of the Cluster. 

The conference "Frontiers in African Digital Research" is designed as a venue 
for exchange of ideas and experiences with international scholars and 
specialists on digital research management procedures, knowledge information 
systems and legal and ethical questions connected to data processing, 
especially in an international / European-African context. 
The conference will address these various topics in four thematic panels "Big 
Data/Smart Data", "Data Management: Legal and Ethical Issues", "Semantic Web 
Technologies" and "Digitisation and Digital Repositories in Africa and African 
Studies", starting on 30 January with a keynote by Prof. Dr. Ope-Davies from 
University of Lagos, Nigeria.

Possibilities to register as participant (conference fee 30 Euros for

We are looking forward to welcome you at Bayreuth and to an inspiring and 
stimulation dialogue.
