International Conference of Crisis Mappers (ICCM) 2016
September 28, 2016 - October 1, 2016
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.
Preparations for this year’s International Conference of Crisis Mappers (ICCM) are already well under way. This year’s conference is being hosted in Manila, Philippines September 28-30, 2016 with field visits from October 1-7. The main host for ICCM 2016 is Map the Philippines. Map the Philippines (MapPH) is an international initiative to provide current, comprehensive and accessible maps of the Philippines for economic and tourist development, and disaster and community resilience. Working across local government, business, NGO, education and citizen sectors, MapPH helps provide coordinated cross sector collaboration, transparency and accountability for more sustainable public and private infrastructure development. MapPH’s free online platform launches in November 2015 and provides opportunities for citizens and organizations to identify funding needs, share programs, services and best practices, and connect with other stakeholders.
