Dear Roboticists

The new extended deadline for accepting abstracts for the IEEE Global
Humanitarian Technology Conference (GHTC) is 16 May.

GHTC will be in Seattle WA, October 13 – 16, 2016. Refer to the Call for
Papers here for details. The abstracts should be 200 words max and
additional information for authors is at
https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.ieeeghtc.org_author-2Dcentral&d=CwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=CRElWU8ppOApJHjrxszRGYoZk5reCPhh4_inQBF6UyQ&s=aJ8RvPNq7PSZ6P4tnUOiSvJ-XIuAqDm4jtc5pfoeJlk&e= .

At GHTC multiple disciplines interact to identify, create and advance
technology that benefits the resource-constrained and
vulnerable populations of the world and help with improving disaster
response. The conference’s focus is research, applied technology, and
case studies pertaining to humanitarian technology and its application
in the following areas:

 - Energy,
 - Healthcare,
 - Disaster management,
 - Connectivity & communication,
 - Humanitarian challenges & opportunities,
 - Water & sanitation,
 - Agriculture,
 - Education, and
 - Deployment.

Authors must submit an initial abstract for consideration to present in
an oral session or interactive poster session; or a proposal for a case
study, panel discussion, and workshop. We especially encourage the
inclusion of case studies on topics that are appropriate for
humanitarian technology. Submission of a full paper is mandatory for
technical paper oral presentations and optional for posters and special
workshops after initial abstract acceptance. All abstracts should be
submitted online following the author guidelines at
https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.ieeeghtc.org_author-2Dcentral&d=CwIDaQ&c=clK7kQUTWtAVEOVIgvi0NU5BOUHhpN0H8p7CSfnc_gI&r=0w3solp5fswiyWF2RL6rSs8MCeFamFEPafDTOhgTfYI&m=CRElWU8ppOApJHjrxszRGYoZk5reCPhh4_inQBF6UyQ&s=aJ8RvPNq7PSZ6P4tnUOiSvJ-XIuAqDm4jtc5pfoeJlk&e= .
