PeaceNet- IGC/APC African Conferences

PeaceNet- IGC/APC African Conferences


From: "Arthur R. McGee" Since the IGC/APC Networks are already geared towards the types of issues and subjects that I normally compile lists for on the Internet, BITnet, Usenet, and BBSs, this will be a list of conferences available via the APC networks dealing with issues/subjects that interest me, Arthur R. McGee. :-D

If you don't already know what those subjects and issues are, you will find out soon enough. :-D I will say that my main interests in some way relate to people of African descent around the world. For those folk who are like minded, you should find something that interests you to some degree. Hopefully, I have saved you some effort and work, by making this list easily available. :-)

Please let me know of any updates, additions, corrections or suggestions that you might have. Thank you very much. Peace.
