IEEE Global Humanitarian Technology Conference (GHTC)
Technology for the Benefit of Humanity // Villanova University, USA / October 23-26, 2024



GHTC follows IEEE Publications Policies.

IEEE Author Ethics Guidelines

Please review the IEEE Submission Guidelines here and Author Ethics guidelines here. (PDF)

Attendance Policy

At least one author from the submission must be registered at the conference and present at the conference. See No-Show Policy below.

Plagiarism and Dual Submissions

By submitting a manuscript to GHTC, the authors guarantee that it has not been previously published (or accepted for publication) in substantially similar form. Furthermore, no paper which contains significant overlap with the contributions of the current paper is either under review at the moment of submission or will be submitted during the GHTC review period to any of the following: another conference, a workshop, or a journal.

Please note that GHTC will also process manuscripts through IEEE’s plagiarism check software to identify and eliminate plagiarism. This includes excessive self-duplication and dependence on earlier published works, as well as duplicated and unattributed content. GHTC asks that your paper’s content be original, previously unpublished, non-confidential and without commercial content.

Guidelines for avoiding plagiarism can be found here:

Guidelines for Artificial Intelligence (AI)-Generated Text

The use of artificial intelligence (AI)–generated text in an article shall be disclosed in the acknowledgements section of any paper submitted to an IEEE Conference or Periodical. The sections of the paper that use AI-generated text shall have a citation to the AI system used to generate the text.

Publication No Show Policy

Papers will be published in the conference proceedings only if at least one of the authors is officially registered and the paper presented. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.

Authorization to publish

IEEE assumes that material presented at its conferences or submitted to its publications is properly available for general dissemination to the audiences these activities are organized to serve. It is the responsibility of the authors, not IEEE, to determine whether disclosure of their material requires the prior consent of other parties and, if so, to obtain it. In order to ensure that the authors are aware of their responsibilities, signed IEEE Copyright Forms must be collected for all papers accepted for publication.


IEEE reserves the right to withhold publishing of proceedings or papers that do not meet the IEEE quality standards.

Number of submissions

For Hybrid and virtual events each presentation requires a unique registration.

Contact the Registration Chair if you have any questions.
