IEEE GHTC (global humanitarian technology conference)

by @ 3:50 pm. Filed under ALL, Engineering Mgmt

GHTC Banner

IEEE GHTC (global humanitarian technology conference) focuses on advancing technology for the benefit of humanity. This cross-disciplinary annual conference provides the perfect venue for those interested in humanitarian projects to join their peers in Seattle in October 2015. 
GHTC is focused on bringing together people to address the critical issues for the benefit of the resource-constrained and vulnerable populations in the world. It is an opportunity for IEEE to work with NGOs to identify the most pressing needs.

Interactive special sessions that support in-field humanitarian efforts:
Open Data Kit Workshop – learn to collect data and build data services for many humanitarian efforts 
Entrepreneurship and Education – engage in workshops with interactive dialogue on grass-roots business development and collaborative educational strategies for entrepreneurs and practitioners 
Demonstrations and Exhibitions – see and experience new technologies in water and sanitation, energy, and communication and connectivity technologies
