In conjunction with the presence of the MOVE Community Outreach truck at the conference, this is a panel discussion among representatives from organizations involved with emergency response and disaster recovery. Besides providing onsite services for disaster recovery, MOVE also offers educational outreach regarding Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM). The focus will be on communications, computing, and power during disaster response, but may expand from there. After a brief description of the MOVE truck, the emphasis will be on stories about what works and lessons learned.
