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
Submission of Proposed Final Paper: June 2, 2017

IEEE Vision and Innovation Challenges (VIC) Summit

Thursday, February 16th, 2017

IEEE is hosting the 1st Annual IEEE Vision and Innovation Challenges (VIC) Summit in conjunction with the IEEE Honors Ceremony Gala and Dinner on Thursday, May 25, 2017 at The Palace Hotel in San Francisco, CA, USA.

The IEEE VIC Summit (www.ieee-vics.org) will take place in at The Palace Hotel in San Francisco, CA, USA on 25 May 2017. The one-day event will present a unique opportunity to meet, mingle, and network with peers and some of the top technology “giants” in the world. The VIC Summit will showcase the breadth of engineering by bringing together innovators, visionaries, and leaders of technology in the Silicon Valley area to discuss what is imminent, to explore what is possible, and what will these emerging areas mean for the future.

The day sessions will look to the future of the industry and the impact engineers have on serving the global community and will culminate with the evening’s IEEE Honors Ceremony Gala. The Honors Ceremony will celebrate the technological achievements that have brought us to where we are today.
