Humanitarian Technology: Science, Systems and Global Impact is being held on 12 – 14 May 2015 at Le Méridien Cambridge-MIT. Anchoring the renowned University Park at MIT, the conference venue is conveniently located in Cambridge’s vibrant innovation district, home to high-tech firms and leading academic institutions.
Technical sessions and technology and policy panels will focus on all aspects of technology, from science to systems, that have a global humanitarian impact. Conference tracks will be presented within an operationally-relevant context, drawing as much as possible from real-world experiences in humanitarian operations and logistics, disaster relief, emergency management, disease management, global health initiatives, international development, and other areas. This will be achieved through contributed and invited talks and panel sessions presented by current practitioners, including professional responders, service workers, and government officials.
