Place and date of the event

 

Douala (Hotel Sawa) was selected as the location of the event. The reasons that have attracted attention for this city are its civil engineering infrastructures (under construction) and its reception facilities able to host such an event. To this end, the other hotels in town (The Cliff, Akwa …) can serve as accommodation for the participants. Infrastructure to visit during the event are the new bridge construction site over the Wouri, the East and West exit routes of the city.

The date chosen is the period from 20 to 24 June 2016.
