eLearning Africa's event organizers have announced that the 4th International Conference on ICT for Development, Education, and Training will take place between May 27th and 29th in Dakar, Senegal. This year's event will discuss the role technology plays in student education and professional training in Africa. The conference will feature nearly 300 speakers from 50 countries. Educational professionals worldwide will gather to discuss topics ranging from open-source learning applications to the use of mobile technology in medical training. The event will additionally showcase and discuss the potential implementation of serious game applications such as Combating Yellow Fever, which challenges medical professionals to follow proper procedures in order to trace and quell a simulated viral epidemic. eLearning Africa 2009 will include a number of interactive workshops and application demonstrations, along with 60 discussion sections, spread across 10 conference strands. A previously issued call for papers resulted in more than 430 submissions from scholars worldwide. Many participants in this year's event will attend with the assistance of eLearning's donation-driven scholarship program, which paid the travel expenses of more than 150 attending professionals last year.
