Call for Papers

EAI InterSol 2023 will be held as an on-site conference and if needed, Accepted Authors who are unable to attend the event in person will be given an option to present remotely.


Interdisciplinary Solutions (InterSol) is an international conference dedicated to the advancement of interdisciplinary research that addresses needs in s ‘underserved areas’. Working in Africa, InterSol’s central objectives are to: establish an interdisciplinary research and development community, encourage education in Africa and around the world, and incentivize members of the community to start trans-/interdisciplinary research projects with real-world decision-making impact. Towards this end, during annual conferences, InterSol holds a special roundtable session during which participants discuss opportunities for collaborative research agendas to take forward.
