The African Cyber Citizenship Conference: ACCC2016 to be held on 31 October - 1 November, 2016, in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.

See deadlines.

The conference is aimed at researchers, policy-makers and reflective practitioners.

Papers will be double-blind peer-reviewed according to the subsidy requirements of the South African Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET). Accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings. Only papers of participants who have paid the full conference fee will be included -- see deadlines.

Conference proceedings will be distributed at the conference and published on this website.

Call for Full Papers

Full Papers will be evaluated via double-blind peer review by a multidisciplinary panel. Full Papers will be evaluated according to their novel research contribution, methodological soundness, theoretical framing and reference to related work, quality of analysis, and quality of writing and presentation.

Manuscripts considering novel designs, new technologies, project assessments, policy analyses, impact studies, theoretical contributions, social issues around the use of Cyberspace, and so forth will be considered. Well-analyzed results from which generalizable conclusions can be drawn are also sought. Authors are encouraged to address the diversity of approaches in their research by providing context, implications, and actionable guidance to researchers and practitioners beyond the authors’ primary domains.

Only original, unpublished, research papers in English will be considered. Papers must use the templates available on the submissions page, and must be no longer than 10 pages.

Submissions longer than 10 pages, not in the template format, not related to the conference themes, and/or not meeting a minimum bar of academic research writing will be rejected without full review. See requirements details.

Call for Panels

You are welcome to submit proposals for a panel discussion. A summary article of the panel discussion can be submitted after the conference, for publication on the ACCC2016 website.
