Participants will be privileged to have a taste of the rich Nigerian culture, music, and dance, during the cocktail session. We look forward to welcoming you to Nigeria, the Giant of Africa.

Call for Papers

Twenty-first century technological developments has transformed the way many things are done. The effect on industry, labour, agriculture, medicine, education and almost every other thing has been tremendous. It appears this is just the beginning of greater changes to come.

Breakthrough discoveries, and extensive natural disasters; global warming, hurricanes and tornadoes, non-human employees and self-driving trucks, gene-editing technology and gene therapy, genomic clones and robots surgeons...current global trends assure us of more drastic changes in human life and society in the future. A forward-looking and visionary approach to the inevitable future changes is the least academics can do in times like this.

The International Conference on Global & Emerging Trends series is a forum for showcasing leading visionary, multidisciplinary research, developments, and technologies, and for presenting the latest work, including products/systems related to the conference theme and sub-themes. We welcome seasoned academicians, experienced and budding researchers, and research students to share their work/projects with colleagues. Works that involve interdisciplinary collaborations between various academic fields are highly welcomed. Submissions should address the conference theme in relation to any academic discipline in line with the conference tracks including, but not limited to, the following (click on each track to view sub-themes).
