When is Wakanda? Afrofuturism and Dark Speculative Futurity
Journal of Futures Studies special symposium issue call for papers and mixed media

This special issue symposium invites not only critical essays and articles on this theme; we want to see, hear, and feel Afrofuturism and Wakandan imaginings in their digital splendor as well. Afrofuturist artists, musicians and aesthetic creators in this genre are invited to contribute and propose digital exhibits of video, visual compositions, podcasts, and creative Q&A around collective mediums such as Google Hangouts, Zoom or other effective media

Third Africa Forum on STI

Third Africa Forum on STI: Building on Science, Technology and Innovation to Boost Private Sector and Socio-Economic transformation in Africa
February 10-12, 2018 in Cairo, Egypt


The third edition of the Africa Forum on Science, Technology and Innovation ("Africa STI Forum") will be held from February 10-12, 2018 in Cairo, Egypt. Co-organized by the African Development Bank and the Egyptian government, the event is also supported by the Republic of South Korea, Japan and other partners.

The fourth industrial revolution is now in motion, merging technologies and blurring the boundaries between physical, digital and biological spheres.

With this in mind, this third edition of the Africa STI Forum emphasizes the importance of research to foster innovation and exploitable goods and services, by focusing on the private sector in five areas: climate change, nutrition, water, ICT and pharmaceuticals - five selected areas as they offer tangible opportunities for economic transformation in Africa.

Objective: To achieve economic growth and enhance the competitiveness of the African private sector through the use of science, technology and innovation. This, by urging the countries of the continent to invest more in research, higher education and science, to build a knowledge economy and not to miss the train of the new industrial revolution on the move.

As a space for exchange and promotion of knowledge, the STI Forum allows a wide dissemination of the latest knowledge and technologies, best practices both at regional and global level, besides promoting entrepreneurship in higher education as well as in science and technology. African political leaders and other decision-makers - current and future - have the opportunity to draw together a common roadmap for scaling up science, technology and innovation for the African continent.
