Conferences play a vital role in allowing researchers to meet and share information and research findings. It also allows program planning, informal networking, and formal education opportunities sharing of academic progress and growth and discussion of strategies to support students’ learning. At CIUCC we organize conferences that bring together experts from China, Africa and the rest of the world to share knowledge.
