AI Fest 🖼️

Step Into the Limelight at AI Fest

What is the Indaba𝕏 SA about? The South African AI community coming together! Join us in celebrating South African innovation and discovery in the field of AI at our opening event, the AI Fest .
At our second staging of the AI Fest, we’re bigger and better. Expect a festive atmosphere, activities, art, music, food vendors and Spot the dog!
We’re calling for engaging posters from students, interactive booths from companies and groundbreaking research demonstrations from labs. Be a part of shaping the future of AI at the AI Fest! Don’t miss out - register below!


Every attendee can bring a poster to the Indaba𝕏! It is a good idea to indicate you will be bringing one during the application/registration process so we can provide adequate space.

Posters are a great way to learn, share, and get feedback on your work in a helpful and friendly environment. The project does not have to be "done", in fact, it's probably more beneficial that your poster is on a work-in-progress project for something that you would like expert advice on. For posters, we also welcome submissions on a topic or interest that you are passionate about but may not have results on.

Take the opportunity. You can also win prizes 🏆!

We recommend preparing an A1 landscape poster. Download a template here.

Please view this video for an example on how to improve your poster design: How to Improve Your Poster Design (adjust the template to your own needs!).
