eLearning Africa 2016 Conference submission extension[edit]

Want to represent and share your work with Wikimedia at the 1tth annual pan-African conference for ICT for development, education and training conference?

I've been notified by the organizers of the eLearning Africa Conference that submissions are still open to Wikimedia community members who wish to participate. This year's conference will be held in Cairo from May 24 - 26. If selected to present, Wikimedians could take advantage of the Travel and Participation Support (TPS) funds available through Community Resources. As the formal deadline has already passed, any proposals should be submitted as soon as possible.

Proposal Submission Form (direct link)

Noting that there is a reduced registration fee for speakers and students. Please share this announcement to potential participants, and let me know if you apply (on wiki or via email, tflanagan@wikimedia.org) so I can follow up with the program organizers on your behalf.
