The AIB-SSA conference is held annually in August at pre-determined locations within Sub-Saharan Africa and the world. Each conference features a combination of plenaries, panels, research papers and teaching cases. All papers and cases presented at AIB-SSA conferences are peer reviewed. Presented paper abstracts are published as conference proceedings. The conferences also include practitioner-oriented tracks, scholars meet practice workshops, paper development workshops and experiential learning trips and immersions. The meetings usually end on a fun and relaxing note with a closing gala, awards ceremony and a thrilling after dinner dance.
