‹ Back

AIS’19 is a 13-day event with plenty of opportunities for discussion, debate and networking. The overarching theme of AIS’19 is ‘Beyond Connection: Internet working for African Development’.

The Africa Internet Summit (AIS) is an annual, regional, multi-stakeholder ICT conference. It is the pinnacle educational and business ICT event in Africa where key players in the Internet industry can interact with the global Internet community. Launched in The Gambia in 2012, the Summit consists of seminars, workshops, tutorials, conference sessions, birds-of-a-feather (BOFs), and other forums for sharing ICT knowledge within the African region.

AIS’19 will provide a platform for delegates to deliberate and address the following key questions:

  • What strategies can we use to drive IPv6 Deployment throughout the continent?
  • How can we improve and expand Internet infrastructure to ensure low cost, resilient and secure Internet access and keep our content and traffic local?
  • How do we ensure affordable, always-on Internet access for all so that all African citizens can reach their potential?
  • What are the policies guiding Internet number resource distribution in Africa and how do we ensure that all stakeholders participate in the Policy Development Process (PDP)?
  • How can we keep our networks safe from cyberattacks, DDoSs and shutdowns?
  • How can we harness the power of the Internet to help end poverty and ensure prosperity for all?
