Humanitarian Technology: Science, Systems and Global Impact 2016 is a community-led conference being held in Boston, MA on June 7 – 9, 2016. It follows the successful HumTech2014 and HumTech2015 conferences, and is set to attract over 200 researchers, practitioners, and key thought leaders for a 3-day multi-disciplinary conference.
The purpose of HumTech2016 is to bring together scientists, engineers, technologists and policymakers from across academic, government, industry and non-government organizations to discuss, share and promote current research and recent accomplishments across all aspects of technology, from science to systems, that have a global humanitarian impact.
HumTech2016 will be an exciting, relevant and technically focused conference that will explore emerging technologies that further enable global humanitarian assistance. Conference tracks and subject topics 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.
HumTech2016 is an ISCRAM Affiliated event. The International Association for Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management (ISCRAM) primary mission is to foster a community dedicated to promoting research and development, exchange of knowledge and deployment of information systems for crisis management.
