Call for Proposals: IEEE Humanitarian Activities Committee Project Funding in 2016: Deadline 15 August

The IEEE Humanitarian Activities Committee (HAC) is currently soliciting proposals for its 2016 funding opportunities.

The IEEE HAC is tasked with supporting the IEEE Board-endorsed vision of IEEE volunteers around the world carrying out and/or supporting impactful humanitarian activities at the local level. HAC Events: HAC is currently soliciting proposals for the support of elements of events that are aligned with this vision. Support requested may include financial resources, publicity in HAC materials, content development - such as HAC assistance in determining session topics and/or potential speakers - HAC promotional materials, and/or other assistance. HAC seeks to support a range of elements of events across IEEE's regions worldwide. Please note: HAC will not sponsor entire conferences - rather, it will support elements of events, such as tracks, workshops, sessions, and so on, that are aligned with HAC's vision. The deadline is 15 September.
