2013 WARIMA Conference rescheduled Print
Friday, 01 November 2013 13:09

The West African Research and Innovation Association (WARIMA) is a key network for DRUSSA, so we were disappointed to learn that its seventh annual Conference, scheduled for later this month, has been postponed. New dates have not yet been set. In assessing member response, the Organising Committee, conference host the University of Jos and the WARIMA Executive decided that registration and the number of abstracts submitted were too low to warrant a conference. This is, supposedly, the result of the ongoing Academic Staff Union industrial action on Nigerian campuses.

In view of the international nature of WARIMA activities, they believed it best to avoid a poorly attended conference that could detract from WARIMA`s hard-earned image. The conference will be rescheduled for the first quarter of 2014 and new dates will be announced at a later stage. DRUSSA will have a presence at the conference and the PLATFORM2013 publication will be part of the conference pack.
