The  Organizing Committee of the above conference, the Centre for Information Technology and Development (CITAD), and Modibbo Adama University of Technology, (MAUTECH), Yola, regret to  inform you  that as a result   of the conference  time clashed with the semester examination of the undergraduate students of the Modibbo Adama University, there are no suitable halls to accommodation the participants of the conference, in addition, the Adamawa State Government which is to play host has only just constituted its executive Council and the new Commissioner of Education is yet to be fully brief about the conference.
