Useful information

The Local Organizing Committee is delighted with the choice of Togo for the organization of the WACS. Our team is working hard to make this conference a success. Here is some useful information.


The conference venue is the Hotel of February 2 And Palais des Congres de Lomé (located at 500m from the Hotel of February 2). These 2 places are accessible in 30 to 45 minutes from any point of Lome when the traffic is fluid which is generally the case .


The registration by credit card has experienced problems on the website. The early registration date is therefore postponed to January 22, 2022. Before this date it is now possible to register by bank transfer. The bank details can be downloaded from the website


Depending on the category of hotel, it is possible to make a reservation on the internet from an online reservation site (expedia,, airbnb). These sites have already negotiated rates and relatively cheaper than what is possible to obtain on site. It is advisable to make the reservation and payment as soon as possible online. The local committee will be able to verify the effectiveness of the reservation on site. Hotel proposals will be available on the website. The reservation procedure for most of the hotels requires an identity registration and an advance payment. Therefore, it is the sole responsibility of the participants.
