Re: Updates on Third Annual Interdisciplinary International Conference, June 23-25, 2016 to take place at Multimedia University of Kenya
As the conference dates of June 23-25 2016 move closer, we would like to make some updates on the Third Interdisciplinary International Conference scheduled to take place in Nairobi, Kenya at Multimedia University of Kenya, from June 23 to 25, 2016 on the theme: “Rethinking Development Paradigms by Africa and its Partners.” The co-hosting by Kenya Scholars and Studies Association (KESSA) has changed from Kisii University to Multimedia University of Kenya, which is a public university in Kenya, located on Magadi Road after Bomas of Kenya and the Catholic University of Eastern Africa (CUEA). Everything else remains the same. As earlier announced, conference participants will pay and meet their own travel and accommodation expenses. Multimedia University of Kenya has limited accommodation of 160 standard hotel rooms. For accommodation at Multimedia University of Kenya, contact Anne Muraguri at email@example.com or Tel 020-2071391/2. There are other alternative hotels nearby. There will be registration fee (as specified on the call for papers) payable on arrival in Nairobi. Conference registration will start from 22 June 2016 at 2pm.
We hope that delegates travelling from abroad have already finalised visa plans to obtain clearance for entry into Kenya. If you need a visa and if there is a Kenyan diplomatic representation in your country, we urge you to process your visa in good time to avoid delays. For purpose of visa application or entry at the airport, you can give the address of the Multimedia University of Kenya, Along Magadi Road, Off Langata Road, P.O BOX 15653- 00503, Nairobi, Kenya as your address while in Kenya.
We wish to advise you that on arrival at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) in Nairobi, you will make your own transport arrangements to Multimedia University of Kenya in Nairobi. The cost for taxi fare from Jomo Kenyatta International Airport to Mulitimedia University should range between US$20 to 50. Multimedia University of Kenya is located along Magadi Road, Off Langata Road. Multimedia University has a hotel whose rates are attached.
In the next few days, we will be sending you the first version of the official conference programme. The conference will be opened in the morning of June 23, 2016 from 8.00am. Kindly send us your PowerPoint slides or confirm participation, and can work on full papers later, but must be sent to us after the conference if you are interested in the post conference publications.
