Cover Sheet

Attached are two items:

Both discuss a two-day international mini-conference that took place in Nigeria earlier this year.

Both were sent to me by Prof. A. B. Rabiu, who is with the National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA) of Nigeria. Many thanks to him for this information.

Please note the presence of Prof. Christine Amory at this event; she is a very active (tireless) ISWI participant assisting both French-speaking Africa and English-speaking Africa.
