Registration for The International Conference of Crisis Mappers (ICCM) is now open.
Excerpt from Crisis Mappers:
ICCM brings together “the most important humanitarian, human rights, development and media organizations with the world’s best technology companies, software developers and academics. Last year’s conference was hosted by the World Bank in Washington, DC and drew well over 400 active participants to define the cutting edge of humanitarian technology.
This conference series has catalyzed the exchange of information and best practices in the emerging field of Crisis Mapping. The annual event has spawned new partnerships and projects that are advancing the fields of Crisis Mapping and Humanitarian Technology. ICCM has also been fortunate to have had considerable media coverage including but certainly not limited to the New York Times, Washington Post, The Economist, UK Guardian, CNN, TED Blog, CBC News, Reuters, ReadWriteWeb, Fast Company, NPR, Voice of America, UN Chronicle and Harvard Business Review.
The theme for ICCM 2013 is “Humanitarian Technology Innovation In and Out of Africa.” It will highlight humanitarian innovation and technology in and outside Africa to cross-fertilize lessons learned and best practices. Core themes of ICCM 2013 thus include national and regional crisis mapping & early warning projects; grassroots, people-centered mapping and development; communicating with disaster affected communities; crowdsourcing crisis information; big data analytics; social computing and information forensics; and next-generation humanitarian technology solutions.”
