June 10, 1996
Preparation towards the July 2nd International conference on Ethiopian
telecommunications is undergoing very smoothly. And the enthusiasm of the
participants, the attendees and the sponsors as well as the warm support we have
received from those who could not make it due to time and/or distance constraints,
have been beyond our expectations.
To-date, we have more than 15 contributions that cover almost all of the themes
that we had outlined when we sent out a "Call for Participation" invitation to the
general audience all of the world, on March 18th, 1996. Participants and
conference attendees will be coming to Washington, DC. from Europe, Ethiopia and
from all over North America.
As the conference is only for one day, we will NOT be accepting any more new
presentation material. If anybody has a topic relevant to the themes of the
conference (for a list of themes, follow the URL below), however, we will try to
accommodate the submission as long as the abstract of the document reaches us by
June 20th; and the final paper by June 25th. This restriction is necessary to give
us time to prepare a completed conference proceedings, ready for reproduction,
prior to the conference date.
In addition, we have some more room for attendees. If interested, please contact
us, again by June 25th, to allow us to prepare conference passes (badges).

Information page at http://www.seas.gwu.edu/student/damenam/conf-info, or send a

Again, thanks to all for the support and enthusiasm we have received; and believe
us, it gave us the enegry to put everything we have got to make this a successful
conference. We are energized!!
