Post Conference Publications:

All papers accepted and presented at the conference will be submitted to Compendex and SCOPUS for indexing. When we secure the IEEE technical sponsorship, reviewed papers which meet the IEEE requirements and presented during the conference will be forwarded to the IEEE for consideration for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore. Papers will also be submitted to for inclusion in their conferences database for worldwide access and indexing. Despite the above undertaking, authors whose papers are found to be technically relevant and suitable as possible journal publications will be invited to extend their PACT conference papers to full length journal papers of not less than 12 pages. Such extensions must ensure that the extended paper is clearly significantly different in content from the paper presented during the conference. They will be further reviewed and if the extended papers are accepted by the Journals, they will be included in special 2023 issues of:

  1. African Journal of Information and Communication Technology (
  2. African Journal of Informatics (
  3. Journal of Machine to Machine Communications (River Publishers, Denmark; 2023 Issues):
  4. Zambia ICT Journal (
