THE VENUE

The Conference would be held at the Princess Alexandria Auditorium of the University of Nigeria (commonly referred to as UNN), a federal university located in Nsukka, Enugu State, Nigeria. Founded by Nnamdi Azikiwe in 1955 and formally opened on 7 October 1960, the University has four campuses – Nsukka (University of Nigeria, Nsukka, UNN), Enugu (University of Nigeria Enugu campus, UNEC), Ituku-Ozalla (University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital, UNTH) and Aba (University of Nigeria, Aba campus, UNAC). The University offers 82 undergraduate programmes and 211 postgraduate programmes.

 

The Princess Alexandria Auditorium is located at the main campus of the University, which is located on 871 hectares of hilly savannah in the town of Nsukka, about eighty km north of Enugu. The Nsukka campus houses the Faculties of Agriculture, Arts, Biological Sciences, Education, Engineering, Pharmaceutical Sciences, Physical Sciences, Social Sciences, and Veterinary Medicine. Nsukka enjoys a very pleasant and healthy climate.

 

TRANSPORT

It is recommended that participants from abroad arrange to arrive at the Nnamdi Azikiwe International Airport, Abuja, which receives flights from most parts of the world. The Airport is located some 40 km from the Central Business District of Abuja, Nigeria’s Federal Capital, which also hosts the International Conference Center and the Federal Secretariat. Nigeria is arguably Africa’s most dynamic economy and boasts of the fastest growing technological sector.

 

There are regular flight connections (Air Peace and ARIK Airlines) between Abuja and Enugu. There is regular road transport between Enugu and Nsukka, which is also quite easily accessible from all parts of Nigeria. Return transportation facilities between Enugu and Nsukka would be provided for Conference participants at predetermined intervals during the Conference days. There are modern shopping facilities and large markets in Enugu.
