Purpose of Webinar
As the IEEE Humanitarian Technology Conference is rotating between different regions, it is critically important to facilitate contributions from submissions from a broad range of stakeholder groups both contributing to and impacted by Sustainable Development, ICT4D and Humanitarian Technology related activities around the world.
Structured abstracts of c.300 words for proposed Oral Presentations or Short Paper Presentation are invited by 30 April, with Paper Submissions due by 30 June.
As some stakeholders with valuable insights and perspectives to share may have less experience preparing conference presentations or papers, the UK and Ireland SSIT Chapter, UK and Ireland SIGHTand SSIT IST-Africa SIGHT are organising a hands-on participatory webinar on Wednesday 14 April.
The IEEE IHTC 2021 Conference Chairs (Prof. Ali Hessami, Prof. Paul M Cunningham) and Technical Program Chairs (Miriam Cunningham, Dr Mufti Mahmud) will discuss their expectations of Oral Presentations and Short Papers, how submissions should be structured, how they will be evaluated and the type of feedback that all submissions should expect. Ali, Paul, Miriam and Mufti will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
This Webinar will be recorded so you can access it even if you cannot participate on the day.
