A friend of mine is working on one of the committees for next years 
Supercomputing conference and noticed that, in the past, they'd had
participants from most continents but none from Africa.  Does anyone
know of a good organization/group/etc which we could spam with our 
conference notice and request for participation?

PS: For those who are curious, here's part of the write-up for the SC Global
portion of next years Supercomputing conference:

> SC Global is the multi-national and multi-cultural meeting place for
> communication and discussion of ideas relating to high-end computing and
> communications and their impact on science and society. SC Global 2003
> will be the second time we've held such an event; we have the
> opportunity to build on the successes of SC Global 2001, and to learn
> from its challenges.
> SC Global will include several Showcase events featuring art, music,
> dance, and other innovative uses of advanced collaboration technologies.
> In addition, SC Global will be an important extension of SC 2003's
> high-quality technical program. For example, papers presented in SC
> Global will meet the same high standards as those in the regular
> Technical Papers sessions.
