VR (and Cutting-Edge Technology) for Humanitarian Action Symposium

As part of the 2017 Japan XR Hackathon (note XR is the combination of Virtual, Mixed and Augmented Reality) held in partnership with the International Commitee of the Red Cross, we will be holding a half-day symposium to explore the application of VR, AR, MR and in general any cutting edge technology in the work being done by humanitarian organizations. For this purpose, we are inviting members of the governmental and non-governmental sector, academia, the media and anyone interested in technology and humanitarian action to join us in this discussion.

We are also inviting anyone - from students to professionals to present their projects and ideas to the audience. If you are interested please contact us immediately at We welcome not only topics directly related to VR and AR, but also to any cutting edge technologies and their application in any field related to humanitarian action - from health to disaster relief.

The symposium will have an open format designed to stimulate discussion and the sharing of ideas. We ask that all participants and audience share in the spirit of this forum.

The ideas we seek to discuss are the following:

What is the state of XR in humanitarian action? Who is using it and how?
Who are the forces (the names) behind this push for the includion of hi-tech in humanitarian action?
What are the challenges and rewards of using cutting edge technology for humanitarian work?
What are the realities and limitations of using XR or any cutting edge technology “in the field”?
What are alternative uses of XR? Communication? Social networking? Education and training?
Why has XR in humanitarian action only received attention as a means of public cause awareness though 360 videos?
What is the future of XR and other emerging technologies in humanitarian action?
Does early adoption new technology like XR have a place in humanitarian action?
