Toward the goal of bringing together renowned researchers and practitioners with an interest in humanitarian applications of emerging technologies, the first ever – International Conference on Wireless Technologies for Humanitarian Relief. (ACWR2011) was held on the beautiful campus of Amrita Vishwa Vidyapeetham (University) at Kochin and Amritapuri.
This conference composed of research presentations, keynote lectures, invited presentations, tutorials, panel discussions, and poster presentations. The conference attracted educators, researchers, technologists and students to share their knowledge and expertise in teaching and learning in order to stimulate high quality research work in wireless and related technologies and its specific importance and relevance to providing humanitarian relief.
Spanning across 4 days (first day at the Health Science Campus at Kochin and the rest 3 days at the Amritapuri Campus), ACWR 2011 saw a plethora of speakers from all over the world, presenting, delivering, and brain storming on research ideas which would form the basis for better wireless technologies for humanitarian relief.
We had the golden opportunity to meet and talk with some of the world renowned researchers in the field of wireless technology.
