To make the conference more accessible, tickets for Philippines’ based attendees are P2,500 including 3 days of conference + 2 field visits!
Organized by the International Network of Crisis Mappers, The International Conference of Crisis Mappers (ICCM) is the leading humanitarian technology event of the year, bringing together the most important humanitarian, human rights, development and media organizations with the world’s best technology companies, software developers and academics. Everyone from every sector is welcome to attend the conference.
2016 marks the first year ICCM is being held in the Southeast Asian region, so please help us showcase the Philippines and make the conference a success! This year’s theme, in partnership with Map the Philippines is Building Resilience: Inclusive Innovations in Crisis Mapping, is focused on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and will highlight how local citizens, business, NGOs, schools, government and technical communities can work better together with more accessible tools to strengthen the resilience of our communities.
The Crisis Mapper community has been fortunate to have had considerable media coverage including The New York Times, Washington Post, The Economist, UK Guardian, CNN, TED Blog, CBC News, Reuters, ReadWriteWeb, Fast Company, NPR, The Voice of America, UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction and The Harvard Business Review. CrisisMappers leverage mobile & web-based applications, participatory maps & crowdsourced event data, aerial & satellite imagery, geospatial platforms, advanced visualization, live simulation, and computational & statistical models to power effective early warning for rapid response to complex humanitarian emergencies.
