This is the first time that the IASA conference will be held in Accra, the capital of the West African country of Ghana. Ghana is one of the most flourishing democracies on the African continent and one of the fastest growing economies in the world. Ghana has many tourist attractions including forts, castles, museums, cultural beaches, forest conservation sites, canopy walkways, etc. Accra, the capital, is a dynamic and cosmopolitan city of about four million people. With Ghanaian hospitality, know that you will be in good hands and your experience will always be a thing to remember.

I warmly welcome you to join us in Accra to have a unique and exciting experience!
