*** Submission deadline extended to 31-May ***

The 14th IEEE Global Humanitarian Technology Conference (IEEE GHTC 2024) is a flagship international conference sharing practical, technology-enabled solutions that address the needs of underserved communities in resource-constrained environments around the world. Submissions should discuss work done to alleviate poverty, provide education and connectivity, and create equitable access to water, energy, and secure food sources with minimal impact on the planet and environment.

GHTC 2024 will be hosted at Villanova University (Pennsylvania, USA) on October 23-26, 2024.

Stakeholders from public and private organizations, education and research institutes, societal and government organizations, and the funding and donor sectors are invited to submit Full Papers (project results) and Project Talks (fieldwork in progress) that share insight, experience, best practice and lessons learned from a research, policy, practitioner and/or community perspective. Papers should present analysis of research results or a case study. General project descriptions or project proposals are not appropriate. Submissions will be assessed for quality, work done, relevance, consideration of ethical issues, methodological vigor and potential for actual impact.

Submissions by community representatives, practitioners (governmental, for-profit and nonprofit), academics, private sector organizations and policy makers describing intervention design and implementation, field experiences and best practices, case studies, project monitoring and evaluation results, and original research are sought. Of particular interest are works that highlight community engagement and collaboration as well as long-term engagement. Paper submissions should include results that have not previously been published and have not been submitted to another conference or journal.

The conference is structured to provide ample opportunity and environments for extensive interaction between attendees. A congruence between the presentation of mature research and reportage of ongoing projects provides an environment in which seasoned practitioners and students new to the field can ask questions and share lessons learned.

IEEE GHTC 2024 Thematic areas are centered around the UN Sustainable Development Goals and include (but are not limited to):

Good Health and Well Being
Affordable and Clean Energy
Clean Water and Sanitation
Agriculture and Food Security
Technology Impacts on Societal Evolution
Quality Education, Communication/Connectivity in Support of Development
Disaster Mitigation, Preparedness, Response and Recovery
Innovation in Industry and Infrastructure
Technologies to promote Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women and Girls
Technologies to enable Peace, Justice, and Equitable Economies

Two types of submissions are invited for presentation at GHTC:

Full Papers: for Publication and Presentation: mature results, tested innovations, or completed projects that should not exceed eight pages. mature results or completed projects and should not exceed eight pages.

Oral-Only Project Talks: discussion of fieldwork in progress (with insufficient results for a full paper) that addresses intention, unexpected challenges, unintended outcomes, successes, and failures. Oral-Only submissions should be described in one or two pages.

For complete details on topics and submission see the Author Central pages.

NOTE: we are also accepting proposals for multi-stakeholder Special Sessions (e.g. demo, panel, discussion; up to 8 pages) deadline May 31.

Accepted Full Papers and Oral-Only Presentations will be grouped thematically to facilitate focused discussion, community building and networking based on common interests.
