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.
