Publications from the iCOMMS Team

Publications are an integral part of any academic year. Here at iCOMMS we treat the dissemination of information, acquired through extensive research, with the highest priority. All our students are encouraged and assisted with publishing their research regularly in order to engage a wider audience and promote the growth of their research through the benefits of this interaction. The publications produced by the iCOMMS Team have also opened the doors to projects and various forms of implementations initiated by the iCOMMS Team and local and international organisations. These results have succeeded in many ways to create positive change in the ICT4D sector by monitoring, acquiring, and interpreting large data-sets that can be relayed to municipalities along with other relevant and disruptive parties.
