As part of its efforts to promote science, the African Scientific Integration Network (AScIN) is organising, in collaboration with the Department of Physics of the University of Lomé and its partners, the second edition of the Regional Colloquium on Physics and Applications (CRePAs).
CRePAs aims to contribute to the advancement of scientific research in Africa, build a science that will respond to the needs of the continent in which the major players will be African scientists based at home and in the Diaspora.
This biennial colloquium sets for itself different themes for every edition in order to adapt to the different societal and environmental challenges. This high-level scientific event will take place from
20 to 25 July 14 to 19 December, 2020 at the University of Lomé (UL). The theme of this second edition is "Science and Society: Energy, Health and Environment in Africa". This unifying theme will allow us to discuss all the issues related to renewable energy needs at the heart of the concerns about global warming, the automation of hospital practices in the era of "Internet of Things (IoT)" and the biological ecosystem (marine, forest and materials). Thus, the focus will be on presentations illustrating research activities on the aforementioned issues. Out-of-theme presentations may be given by African scientists and others in the form of "Invited Talk".
CRePAs is a scientific event created to provide a platform for researchers from the continent and the Diaspora to:
showcase their scientific research findings;
share their experiences through discussions;
collaborate on current and innovative topics related to sustainable development around the world and especially in Africa, and
to contribute to the dissemination of research outputs, innovations and interventions in Africa.
The themes of the conference
The different themes are:
Numerical algorithms and physical problems, biomedical, biomechanical, bioengineering and systems engineering.
Materials science, nanostructure engineering and optoelectronic components for organic and hybrid semiconductor solar cell applications.
Quantum transport and calculation of electronic structures: electronic, thermal, spintronics and vibrations.
Performance and efficiency of optical systems and structural mechanics
Hospital data engineering, agricultural and environmental engineering.
Outdoor : Roadshows, exhibitions, sightseeings.
Researchers from all disciplines working in areas that are related in some way to the themes of CRePAs 2020 are encouraged to apply. PhD students and Master’s students about to complete their programs are eligible to attend the colloquium. Female candidates are highly encouraged to apply. AScIN will make an exception to accept female candidates in the last year of their first degree program. In the latter case, only a poster presentation will be requested.
Communication will be mainly in English language.
Presently, AScIN does not dispose of enough funds to cater for registration, transportation, accommodation, health insurance, feeding and other related expenses, for all participants. To this end, every intending participant will be required to take charge of their registration and all other related expenses. However, coffee and snacks will be provided during the coffee break as well as lunch for each day while the following services will be available:
Members of our welcome team will be available to guide participants through all necessary procedures in order to have a pleasant stay in Togo.
Accommodation will be available on the University of Lomé campus at the rate of 3000 FCFA /bed/night for student and 10000 FCFA/room/night for lecturers and researchers. There will also be arrangements for off campus accommodation with prices ranging between 15 000 FCFA and 60 000 FCFA /room/night.
Some members of the planning team are willing to accommodate participants in their private homes should the need arise. However, should AScIN receive enough funds from sponsors and donors, travel expenses, transportation within Lomé and accommodation for a number of foreign participants would be taken care of by the organisers.

Plenary sessions during the colloquium will focus on numerical solutions of physical, biophysical problems including materials science, while technical sessions will cover all subfields of physics. In order to equip participants with numerical methods and calculations skills, training workshops will be running in parallel to the technical sessions. Participants pertaining in the workshops will grouped by affinity. This arrangement is put in place with a view to stimulating the spirit of collaboration between researchers on the one hand, and between researchers and students on the other.
Recreational activities will also be scheduled:
a. Roadshows or high schools visitation,
c. visitation to tourists’ sites and memorable places
