The overall objective of the Computer Science Research Days (JRI 2021) is to constitute a framework for exchange and reflection between the various players in the digital field, in particular teacher-researchers, researchers, doctoral students, students and structures of the digital ecosystem around emerging themes and innovative solutions for the development of a true digital economy. Students will also present innovative solutions for visibility of their results.

It is more specifically:

  • to motivate, encourage and support computer research in order to provide innovative solutions to major development issues taking into account the real needs of the populations;
  • to work for the establishment of collaborations on federating and multidisciplinary themes
  • to stimulate innovations through emerging technologies and data;
  • to foster University / Business collaboration around innovative research projects for the economy;


The topics to be discussed may touch all areas of digital without restriction. The areas already selected are:

  • Cybersecurity;
  • Networks and Internet technologies;
  • The databases.
  • Cloud Computing;
  • Artificial intelligence;
  • Machine Learning;
  • Data Sciences;
  • Big data and applications;
  • Business Intelligence;
  • Data Mining
  • Bioinformatics;
  • Distributed Computing;
  • Embedded Systems;
  • Mobile computing and telecommunications;
  • IoT;

This list is not exhaustive and the theme proposals could be linked to work in progress or promising subjects.

The participants in these 4 th days of computer science research are:

  • students, teacher-researchers and researchers from Burkina Faso in the digital field;
  • private companies and public administrations that can benefit from the results of computer science research;
  • players in the digital ecosystem, MDENP, ARCEP, CIL, ANSSI, ANPTIC mobile telephone operators (ORANGE, TELMOB, TELECEL), incubators such as Sira’Labs, Kéolid, Beoogo Labs, Ouaga lab;
  • anyone interested in computer science research issues and their impact on development.
