The IEEE Region 10 Humanitarian Technology Activities Committee in collaboration with AISYWLC’22 is organizing “HTA Impact Congress” in which HTA is going to recognize the importance of humanitarian project design skills for new initiatives and new technology adopters. This recognition develops and encourages R10 Sections to support and contribute in the Humanitarian Technology areas. This R10 HTA Highlights Video Contest offers all IEEE R10 members, especially the SIGHT members, an opportunity to exercise and improve both project design and visual presentation skills in a concise manner suitable for a wider audience to showcase the good quality of their designed projects at regional level.
