Appropriate Healthcare Technologies for Low Resource Settings - AHT2014
The 8th International Conference - Promoting access to healthcare through technology
17 - 18 September 2014 | London, UK
The IET is pleased to launch a call for papers for the 8th International Conference on Appropriate Healthcare Technologies for Low Resource Settings - AHT2014.
Have your say, promote your work, theories and case studies. All papers will be peer reviewed and accepted papers will be delivered by oral presentations and posters.
Please note the IET or other associated societies cannot meet any travelling or subsistence expenses for authors, either prior to or during the conference. Any sales pitches will be rejected.
Do you have an innovative frugal healthcare technology that you would like to present but are not able to come to London to make a presentation?
We can now make that possible though our Remote Presentation Method through Skype. Please contact Veena Gupta to discuss if you can secure one of the limited slots available.
The submission process
Authors wishing to submit papers and present at AHT 2014 are required to submit an abstract for consideration by the Conference’s Technical Programme Committee.
Following the review of abstracts, successful authors will be invited to submit a full paper for a second review by the committee or to produce a poster for display and explanation at the conference.
Successful authors of full papers will then be invited to attend and present their work at Appropriate Healthcare Technologies for Low Resource Settings - AHT2014.
Abstracts must be submitted by Monday 10 March 2014 by 08:00 GMT if they are to be considered for the conference. Use of the AHT 2014 template is mandatory, and only abstracts following the instructions provided below will be considered. It is vital that delegates pay close attention to the instructions. Submissions that do not follow the guidelines may be returned to the author or not considered for acceptance to the Conference.
Before submission, make sure that the following material is ready:
- Title, authors’ names, affiliation and a 35 word (approx) biography. If your title and abstract contains no special characters, and no sub or sup scripts, the text can be copied and pasted from your Word document or typed in directly
- Your abstract of no more than one A4 page, including title, names, affiliation and abstract in word format (file size maximum 2.0 MB)
- Preferred topic area (the Technical Programme Committee reserves the right to change the authors' choice of topic area)
Once you have the material listed above ready you can proceed with the electronic submission of your paper.
The on-line submission form for abstracts will be open until Monday 10 March 2014 08:00 GMT. If you have difficulties in submitting your abstract, please try to shorten its file-name.
- The working language of the conference is English, which will be used for all printed material, presentations and discussion
- The abstract template is a Microsoft Word file. Please save this template file to your PC’s hard drive and use it when you prepare your abstract
- If you are submitting more than one abstract you can use the same email address and password for each abstract
- Abstracts are required for all papers and posters. Abstracts MUST be submitted using the template form provided
- Each abstract must fit within the abstract template and use the Times New Roman or Arial font, size 10
- Length - Up to a maximum of two A4 pages (you may include diagrams)
- Special characters - When inserting special characters in text use the ‘Insert Symbol’ function (avoid code-numbers for the symbols)
- Full paper only - It is essential that authors make sure all fonts are embedded and .pdf files are submitted unlocked. If files are submitted in ‘Read only’ format or with security we may be unable to publish your paper
On submission of your abstract the corresponding author will receive a confirmation of the receipt of the abstract.
Processing and publication of personal data
The personal information we receive from delegates will also be required after the conference. This is in order to render an account of the conclusions arrived at during the conference, for statistical purposes, and for the dispatch of information on relevant conferences in the future.
Personal data will be stored by the Institution of Engineering and Technology for future mailings and information on forthcoming conferences.
Personal data may also, in certain cases, be released to other companies participating in the conference for the distribution of information and offers directly from them.
Each paper must have at least one author registered Wednesday, 6 August 2014, to avoid the paper being withdrawn from the conference proceedings. Author’s presenting two or more papers must pay the additional paper fee. The author must be present at the conference to present the submission either orally or by poster presentation.
You are reminded that the Institution or other associated societies cannot meet any travelling or subsistence expenses for authors, either prior to or during the conference.

Once completed, licence to publish forms should be uploaded onto the online submission system.
If the IET does not receive a one of the above signed forms, we will be unable to publish the paper in the conference proceedings, INSPEC or IEEE Explore.
