• Disaster Recovery
We welcome submissions from the public, private, education and research and societal sectors. While the format of individual sessions may vary depending on the submissions accepted, submissions providing an opportunity for conference delegates to interact with or see live demonstration of technology or to better understand from practitioners as well as MDP Students unintended or unanticipated consequences of interventions (whether or not there was a positive outcome) will be prioritised.
Please submit your proposals highlighting (a) the nature of the proposed contribution and (b) how acceptance of this submission will strengthen the impact of IEEE GHTC 2018 by raising awareness of innovative technology or engineering solutions or sharing insight into important social, cultural, ethical or acceptance and local ownership related issues to be considered when doing field research or implementation projects.
