Announcing GHTC 2017 Call for Papers

Friday, March 3rd, 2017

2017 IEEE Global Humanitarian Technology Conference (GHTC) CFP

We are pleased to announce that submissions are now being accepted for the 2017 IEEE Global Humanitarian Technology Conference that will be held October 19-22, 2017 in San Jose, CA, USA.

Please see the Call for Papers at: http://2017.ieeeghtc.org/

Now in its 7th year, GHTC is the flagship IEEE Conference focusing on innovation, deployment and adaptation of Technology for Humanitarian Goals and Sustainable Development. GHTC invites presenters to showcase innovation and progress in technology and methodology addressing the socio-cultural and socio-economic needs of vulnerable and resource-constrained end-user communities in developing and developed countries, as well as confronting the challenges of both natural and man-made disasters.

Key focus areas that are particularly relevant include (but are not limited to):

Poverty Alleviation
Healthcare
Agriculture & Food Security
Quality Education
Affordable & Clean Energy
Clean Water & Sanitation
Connectivity & Communication
Humanitarian Challenges & Opportunities
Disaster Mitigation, Preparedness, Response & Recovery
Other United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Participation is invited from the public, private, education and research, societal and funding sectors. Researchers and policy makers, practitioners and representatives of end-user communities all have valuable contributions to make. Interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary papers, and proposals for interactive sessions and panels are warmly encouraged; such approaches have proven highly effective in the development and application of technology for Sustainable Development and Humanitarian goals.

Authors and Presenters must demonstrate a clear understanding of the interrelationship of their work with socio-cultural, socio-economic, policy and environmental factors, and clearly state preliminary, final or expected results and impact.

Key Dates:
Submission of Abstract: April 7, 2017

IEEE SusTech 2016 Student Poster Contest

The fourth IEEE Conference on Technologies for Sustainability (SusTech), October 9-11, 2016 in Phoenix, Arizona at the Phoenix Airport Marriott, explores the development and application of science, engineering, and technology to promote sustainability. To meet present needs without compromising our future, advances in sustainable technology, policy and social behavior are essential.

IEEE’s Technologies for Sustainability Conference (SusTech) brings together individuals and organizations who want to promote and apply advances in sustainable technology that allows:

  • Eliminating or reducing dangers such as pollution, global warming, electronic waste and negative impacts to overall health;
  • Minimize the impact of agriculture, energy production, transportation and electronics’ manufacturing and recycling on the environment;
  • Increase operating efficiency by reducing the waste stream; and
  • Use fewer resources to produce the same or better outcomes

The conference explores the development and application of science, engineering and technology to promote sustainability. SusTech brings together technologists and scholars from multiple disciplines to learn about and collaborate on improving sustainable technologies. The program features workshops, keynotes and presentations of contributed papers and invited speakers on research, technologies, methodologies, tools and case studies. SusTech strives to provide attendees the tools, connections and proactive solutions to take their sustainability programs to the next level.

Topics covered at the SusTech 2016 Conference include Internet of Things, Smart Grid, eWaste, Renewable Energy, Water, Electronics, Energy Efficiency, Transportation, and Societal Implications of Technology.

SusTech 2016 invites undergraduate and graduate students to submit abstracts for the Student Poster Contest. Additional information is available here. (Download Poster Contest PDF Flyer here.)

Students are invited to send in ideas or designs for developing projects/products supporting the sustainability topics areas of the Conference. The selected posters will be displayed during the SusTech 2016 Student Poster Session, on Sunday October 9, being held in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.

For contest details and rules of submission see the SusTech Poster Contest page.
