This year the Southern Africa Telecommunication Networks and Applications Conference (SATNAC), hosted annually by Telkom, will focus on the theme: The Changing Face of Telcos in a Digital World.

The conference has become the leading ICT conference in South Africa and is the only conference of its kind that brings together students, academics, government representatives, industry specialists and leaders. SATNAC has proven to be an excellent networking platform for the ICT industry and prides itself on being an ideal forum for postgraduate students to highlight successes achieved on their research.

The prestigious conference draws some 400 delegates every year and is the flagship event of Telkom’s Centre of Excellence applied research programme. It is a very important facet of Telkom’s capacity building programme. The programme is the largest coordinated research programme in South Africa.

The highly topical theme promises to generate a number of interesting plenary sessions and presentations - the significant impact of new business models and technological advances on the communications industry will solicit varying points of view; not just from communications industry role players but from non-communications industries and indeed society at large. Very interesting and controversial panel discussions are envisaged.

Time will also be devoted to presentations and discussions covering the research being carried out by the 15 Telkom Centres of Excellence. These Centres of Excellence are located at tertiary learning institutes, at post graduate level.

This year’s SATNAC will be held from 1 to 4 September 2019 at Fairmont Zimbali Resort in Ballito, KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.

Looking forward to see you at SATNAC 2019!

Best wishes
