Event Description

8th IEEE Region 10 Humanitarian Technology Conference (R10HTC2020) | 1 – 3 Dec 2020 | Kuching, Malaysia.



The mission of IEEE is “Advancing Technology for Humanity”. One of the focuses of the IEEE Strategic Plan 2020-2025 is “IEEE will be a trusted source of educational services and resources to support Life-Long-Learning”. Life-Long-Learning (LLL) can be defined as an “ongoing, voluntary, and self-motivated pursuit of knowledge for either personal or professional reasons”.

In the past years, many projects on humanitarian technologies (HT) and educational activities (EA) have been successfully executed within the IEEE Asia Pacific Region with the support of local organisations and IEEE operating units (OU). Many of them have fulfilled the educational and learning objectives with long-lasting impacts.

This special session aims to invite submission of papers to share and showcase success, and with particular focus on LLL. This is intended to serve as inspiration and model for students, academics, researchers, and the community. The best submission in this session will receive a Certificate of Recognition. Submitted papers must follow the required format of the conference publication and undergo a peer-review process.
