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.

This year’s conference is being hosted in Manila, Philippines September 28-30, 2016 with field visits from October 1-7. The ICT4Peace Foundation co-curated and funded one of the best attended ICCM conferences in Geneva, five years ago - the first time it was brought to and held in Europe. In addition, through the support for ICCM Fellows, funding for logistics, technical input, curation and the moderation of panels, the Foundation has contributed to the success of the conference in Boston (2010), Washington (2012), Nairobi (2013) and New York (2014).

Due to unavoidable circumstances, Sanjana Hattotuwa, Special Advisor at the Foundation, who was slated to MC the conference in Manila, could not travel to the Philippines. On behalf of the Foundation, a short video message from Sanjana was played at the conference.
