GHTC 2016 Registration open and preliminary program and keynote speakers

Wednesday, August 31st, 2016

SEATTLE (Washington) (29 August 2016) – The 6th IEEE Global Humanitarian Technology Conference (GHTC) has announced its preliminary program and keynote speakers.

IEEE’s Global Humanitarian Technology Conference (GHTC) brings together individuals and organizations who want to make a difference by applying technology based solutions to natural disasters and needs of the socioeconomically disadvantaged in developing countries. IEEE GHTC is the place to be whether you have experience to share, are looking for opportunities to contribute and collaborate, or simply want to better understand global development and humanitarian work. Celebrating its 6th anniversary, this year’s conference is dedicated to “Advancing Technology for Humanity”, focusing on key areas including energy, health, disaster management, connectivity, agriculture, and education.

Join us in Seattle, WA, USA October 13-16, 2016 as we discuss how technology can:

  • Enable healthcare delivery and provide power and communications in developing countries
  • Provide clean water, provide sanitation and improve crop yields
  • Improve the timeliness and effectiveness of disaster response
  • Assist with training and build capacity needed to improve the standard of living

Abstract or Proposal Due: April 18 MAY 16, 2016

Seattle – February 15, 2016 – Today the IEEE Global Humanitarian Technology Conference (GHTC) Committee announced the 2016 Call For Papers. The sixth annual GHTC will take place in Seattle, Washington, USA, October 13– 16th 2016.

Organized by IEEE, the world’s largest technical professional society with over 400,000 members in over 160 countries, IEEE GHTC is where multiple disciplines interact to identify, create and advance technology to benefit humanity. It is the perfect venue for those interested in humanitarian projects to join their peers in Seattle. The conference will feature interactive sessions where attendees can share best practices and lessons learned that complement the workshops, panels, case studies, keynote speakers, posters, and technical presentations. Refer to the Call for Papers  or visit the GHTC website, www.ieeeghtc.org for details on abstract submission and timelines.

We encourage those from academia, for-profit and non-profit businesses, governmental and non-governmental organizations to submit proposals and papers; to gather together in Seattle; and to discuss how technology can benefit the resource-constrained and vulnerable populations in the world as well as improve disaster response. GHTC’s unique focus on humanitarian technology provides visibility and recognition for humanitarian work and projects. Its interactive nature provides a fertile environment for identifying resources, ideas, collaborators, and potential partners or investors.

Authors may submit the initial abstract for a paper or poster presentation; or a proposal for a case study, panel discussion, and workshop. We especially encourage the inclusion of case studies and topics that are appropriate for interactive sessions. Submission of a full paper is required after initial abstract acceptance. All submissions require an abstract for initial review and acceptance submitted online, and following the author guidelines at www.ieeeghtc.org/author-central.
