It is with a great deal of regret that we announce the cancelling of the ICCM-Africa 2020 conference. On March 6, the Kenyan government unilaterally requested all international conferences be cancelled in an attempt to combat the spread of COVID-19. They wrote: “The Government has, with IMMEDIATE EFFECT banned all meetings, conferences and events of international nature in Kenya.” The Kenya news stated it a little more precisely: “The national government has banned all conferences of international nature with more than 15 people for 30 days as a precautionary measure against Coronavirus.” Sadly, this covers the time of ICCM-Africa.
The goal of missions is to better the world, through the spread of the Gospel and by living out the work of the God of love. The ICCM-Africa leadership understands that living a life of love sometimes means making difficult choices other than we would like to make. And we believe that supporting this effort of Kenya is the best way we, as a bunch of Christian believers can help show God’s love at this time.
We are going to miss you all terribly, and will attempt to reschedule ICCM-Africa 2020 once we have more information from the Kenyan government.
The International Conference on Computing and Mission (ICCM) is an annual informal (NO ties allowed ;-) ) gathering of women and men who have a common interest in computers and mission.
