Regional Colloquium on Physics and Applications (CRéPAs) 2020

"Science and Society: Energy, Health and Environment in Africa"

20 - 25 July 2020

University of Lomé, Togo

1. Background and justification of the theme

As part of its efforts to promote science, the African Scientific Integration Network (AScIN) is organising, in collaboration with the Department of Physics of the University of Lomé and its partners, the second edition of the Regional Colloquium on Physics and Applications (CRéPAs).

CRéPAs aims to contribute to the advancement of scientific research in Africa, build a science that will respond to the needs of the continent in which the major players will be African scientists based at home and in the diaspora.

This biennial colloquium sets for itself different themes for every edition in order to adapt to the different societal and environmental challenges. The theme of this second edition is "Science and Society: Energy, Health and Environment in Africa". This unifying theme will allow us to discuss all the issues related to renewable energy needs at the heart of the concerns about global warming, the automation of hospital practices in the era of "Internet of Things (IoT)" and the biological ecosystem (marine, forest and materials).

Thus, the focus will be on presentations illustrating research activities on the aforementioned issues.

Out-of-theme presentations may be given by African scientists and others in the form of "Invited Talk".

2. Objectives

CRéPAs is a scientific event created to provide a platform for researchers from the continent and the diaspora to:

  • showcase their scientific research findings;
  • share their experiences through discussions;
  • collaborate on current and innovative topics related to sustainable development around the world and especially in Africa, and
  • to contribute to the dissemination of research outputs, innovations and interventions in Africa.

The themes of the conference

  • Numerical algorithms and physical problems, biomedical, biomechanical, bioengineering and systems engineering.
  • Materials science, nanostructure engineering and optoelectronic components for organic and hybrid semiconductor solar cell applications.
  • Quantum transport and calculation of electronic structures: electronic, thermal, spintronics and vibrations.
  • Performance and efficiency of optical systems and structural mechanics
  • Hospital data engineering, agricultural and environmental engineering.

3. Eligibility Criteria

Researchers from all disciplines working in areas that are related in some way to the themes of CRéPAs 2020 are encouraged to apply. PhD students and Master’s students about to complete their programs are eligible to attend the colloquium. Female candidates are highly encouraged to apply. AScIN will make an exception to accept female candidates in the last year of their first degree program. In the latter case, only a poster presentation will be requested.
