IEEE GHTC 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 San Jose CA (USA) in October 2018.

GHTC is an international flagship conference, focused on bringing together people working on the application of technology to addressing critical issues for the benefit of the resource-constrained and vulnerable  populations in the world.  It is a forum where IEEE works with developers and NGOs to identify the most pressing needs. We encourage participants from academia, for-profit and non-profit businesses, governmental and non-governmental organizations to attend and present research, ideas, and other considerations for the creation of effective humanitarian technology. We also invite participants to share case studies and lessons learned from deployment and application of humanitarian technologies.

Conference Mission:

  • Foster exchange of information, networking, and cooperation in the humanitarian and emergency management fields.
  • Focus attention on businesses who are enabling technologies in support of humanitarian principles and ways of operating.
  • Impact in positive and meaningful ways lives of disadvantaged billions of people around the world.
  • Explore science, engineering and technology solutions for vulnerable communities and attract young people to these professional fields.
  • Highlight technologies that promote successful practice, and attract humanitarian and emergency management practitioners in order to learn from their successes and better guide future research.
