About ICIRT 2024

The International Conference on IoT and Related Technologies (ICIRT) is an annual conference organized by the West African IoT Consortium. This 1st edition of the ICIRT will take place in Abidjan in Côte d'Ivoire from January 18 to 19, 2024 on the site of Centre National de Calcul of Côte d'Ivoire (CNCCI).

The aim of this conference is to contribute to the strengthening of the sharing and dissemination of results of research programs and projects on IoT in West Africa in order to facilitate their valorization. This conference will be an opportunity to strengthen and consolidate the collaboration between academics, industrialists, startups operating in the field of IoT and its related technologies in order to contribute to the achievement of some of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), namely SDGs n°2, n°3,n°12,n°13, and n°15.
