Research, Innovate, and Collaborate at the NCC for Uganda

The National Conference on Communications (NCC) was established in October 2010, by the Uganda Communications Commission to among others, strengthen communications’ research and innovation, particularly of locally relevant solutions through discipline-specific conference series in communications 

The Conference thus offers students, researchers, application developers, innovators 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
