The 10th IEEE Global Humanitarian Technology Conference (IEEE GHTC 2020) will share practical technology-enabled solutions addressing needs of underserved communities in resource constrained environments around the world in the context of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs).

IEEE GHTC is the flagship IEEE forum for presenting and discussing humanitarian technology innovation and deployment. Stakeholders from the public, private, education and research, societal, funding and donor sectors are invited to submit papers (or proposals for oral presentations) sharing Sustainable Development, ICT4D (information and communication technologies for development) and Humanitarian Technology related insights, experiences, good practices and lessons learnt from a research, policy, practitioner and/or community perspective. Papers should present analysis of initial or final research results or a case study. General project descriptions are not appropriate.

Submissions by practitioners (governmental, for-profit and non-profit), academics, private sector actors and policy makers describing intervention design and implementation, field experiences and best practices, case studies, project monitoring and evaluation results, and original research are of particular interest. Paper submissions should include results that have not previously been published and should not be simultaneously submitted to another conference or journal.

IEEE GHTC 2020 Thematic areas include (but are not limited to):
• Agriculture & Food Security (SDG2)
• Good Health and Well Being (SDG3)
• Quality Education (SDG4)
• Clean Water & Sanitation (SDG6)
• Affordable & Clean Energy (SDG7)
• Decent Work and Economic Growth (SDG8)
• Sustainable Cities and Communities (SDG11)
• Disaster Mitigation, Preparedness, Response & Recovery
• Communication/Connectivity in Support of Development

Three types of submissions are possible for presentation at GHTC:
• Full Papers are appropriate for mature work or completed projects and should not exceed eight pages;
• Short Papers are appropriate for early stage projects or authors wishing to share a snapshot of results-in-progress, experiences and perspectives, and should be three to four pages in length including a short reference section.
• Oral-Only (Poster) Presentations are appropriate for work-in-progress, projects in the pre-implementation stage as well as an option for practitioners, policy makers or community representatives who do not want to write a paper. Oral-Only submissions should be described in one or two pages.

NOTE: we are accepting proposals for Special Sessions (up to 8 pages)

Reviews: all submissions received by the first deadline of 31-March will be assigned for reviews. Subsequent submissions will be assigned for reviews every 2 weeks (2 batches).

Short Papers and Oral-Only Presentations will be accepted for presentation either during an appropriate paper session or poster session at the discretion of the Program Committee.

Complementing the 2020 IEEE GHTC Conference Proceedings, accepted papers presented during the conference will also be submitted for publication in IEEE Xplore®.

A selection of accepted papers will be invited to submit a revised and extended version to an IEEE journal.
