Call For Papers

Now in its 7th year, GHTC is the Flagship IEEE Conference focusing on innovation, deployment and adaptation of Technology for Humanitarian Goals and Sustainable Development.

GHTC invites presenters to showcase innovation and progress in technology and methodology addressing the socio-cultural and socio-economic needs of vulnerable and resource-constrained end-user communities in developing and developed countries, as well as confronting the challenges of both natural and man-made disasters.

Key focus areas that are particularly relevant include (but are not limited to):
• Poverty Alleviation
• Healthcare
• Agriculture & Food Security
• Quality Education
• Affordable & Clean Energy
• Clean Water & Sanitation
• Connectivity & Communication
• Humanitarian Challenges & Opportunities
• Disaster Mitigation, Preparedness, Response & Recovery
• Other United Nations Sustainable Development Goals

Participation is invited from the public, private, education and research, societal and funding sectors. Researchers and policy makers, practitioners and representatives of end-user communities all have valuable contributions to make. Interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary papers, and proposals for interactive sessions and panels are warmly
encouraged; such approaches have proven highly effective in the development and application of technology for Sustainable Development and Humanitarian goals.

Authors and Presenters must demonstrate a clear understanding of the interrelationship of their work with socio-cultural, socio-economic, policy and environmental factors, and clearly state preliminary, final or expected results and impact. Proposals for Interactive Sessions [Panels, Case Studies, and Workshops] should be designed to stimulate dialogue, knowledge exchange and the co-design of ideas, concepts and implementation plans by conference attendees.

Submissions are invited for Keynotes and Contributions to Plenary Panel Sessions, Full Papers, Poster Papers, and Interactive Parallel Sessions: Panels, Case Studies, and Workshops.

All Abstracts must be submitted on-line following the author guidelines at

Only accepted papers that are presented during GHTC 2017 will be submitted for publication in IEEE Xplore.
