Due to the rising COVID-19 infections that are reported during the third wave and the current Level 3 lockdown regulations, the SATNAC Local Organising Committee and Telkom Management have decided to postpone SATNAC 2021 to November 2021.

All indications are that the infections will still be too high towards the end of August 2021 to allow us to continue with the conference.

We have therefore decided to move the conference to 21 to 23 November 2021.  You will recall that the original dates were 29 to 31 August 2021. We believe that the new dates in November will also allow for more attendees and participants to have been vaccinated by then.  Vaccination is not a pre-requisite to attend SATNAC, but it does provide some immunity towards the virus.

The Southern Africa Telecommunication Networks and Applications Conference (SATNAC) is an annual event hosted under the auspices of Telkom and attracts in excess of 400 delegates. This prestigious event has become the continent’s leading ICT conference where Industry, Academia and Operators publish on matters concerning progress achieved in applied research in the Information and Communications Technology (ICT) sector and where industry leaders share their views on latest trends and developments.

SATNAC has proved to be an excellent networking platform for the ICT industry and prides itself on being an ideal forum for postgraduate students to highlight successes achieved on their research.

During the two day conference a number of plenary sessions and presentations will focus on the theme: Accelerated Digitisation - Current and Future Ways of Working with panellists representing telecommunication operators and vendors from international organisations.

This year’s Southern African Telecommunication Networks and Applications Conference (SATNAC) will be held at Spier near Stellenbosch, Western Cape, South Africa.
