The theme of IHTC 2015 is “supporting communities toward resilience,” focusing on policies, practices, and technologies aimed at building resilient communities. The purpose of the trip is to engage with the IEEE Humanitarian community. Additionally we look to build awareness of NARALO, ICANN and Internet issues relevant to IEEE attendees. This conference will provide numerous outreach opportunities to introduce attendees to NARALO and to ICANN special programs.
