The Uganda Communications Commission, in collaboration with Makerere University, established a National Conference on Communications (NCC) in October 2010 with the aim of strengthening communications research particularly of locally relevant solutions through discipline-specific conference series in communications.
The Conference provides a national forum for the presentation of outputs of peer-reviewed research into solutions for local challenges and proposals to improve ICTs in Uganda and a platform for discussion of the local challenges and industry trends by stakeholders (industry, government and academia) including facilitating networking of young professionals with senior practitioners and accredited training institutions.
The Conference also provides students, researchers, application developers, and practitioners a platform to identify new research challenges, share solutions and discuss issues relevant to the communications sector of developing countries such as Uganda.
Through its College of Engineering, Design, Art & Technology, Makerere University is hosting the Sixth National Conference on Communications (NCC 2021), to be held from 3rd to 4th March 2021. The Conference will host keynote speeches and technical paper sessions on topical issues in Uganda’s communications sector.
