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. As thus one of the few neutral spaces where such important conversations can take place, the annual ICCM conference brings together a wide range of diverse actors for important conversations that lead to concrete new projects and deliverables across a variety of diverse domains. As a community of practice, the ICCM thus helps facilitate new projects and catalyzes innovation in the area of humanitarian technology.
Couldn’t make it to ICCM because of logistical issues, but did this short video, which was shown at the start of the conference, on behalf of the ICT4Peace Foundation.
The keynote address I made at ICCM 2011, in Geneva, is below. Good times.
