1. When is the next ACF?
ACF 2008 will take place on 7 and 8 November at the Renaissance

Caribbean and Latin America. It is too early right now to say which schools
will be present. We will be updating this site as time passes and as the
colleges and universities register to participate. Check this link for a list of the
6. Do I have to be in my final year of secondary education to attend ACF?
Not necessarily. ACF is for everyone. You can be in your first year and still
