Dear Faculty and Students,

 

CONFERENCES

 

Looking for an academic conference in Kenya to attend and present your work in and to network with your colleagues? A comprehensive updated list can be found at https://academia-ke.org/events/. Use conference publications as a springboard to preparing your journal publications, incorporating insightful feedback from your fellow conference participants. For post-graduate students, making presentations and observing others do the same prepares you for the defences you will have to go through as you prepare to complete your Masters and PhD degrees.
