April 28, 2023 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

IEEE SIGHT MTL is proud to present “Can you hear our voice? Background of the Destruction and Ways Forward after February 2023 Earthquakes in Türkiye” – an insightful event featuring guest speaker Fatma Özdoğan. Join us as we explore the potential of technology in mitigating the impact of natural disasters and improving our ability to respond to them. As an architect based in Türkiye, Fatma Özdoğan has international professional experience in Türkiye, Azerbaijan, and Qatar, research experience in Colombia, Lebanon and Türkiye. After completing her studies in Türkiye, she was offered a scholarship at Oxford Brookes University, UK to study the MA Development and Emergency Practice programme. She improved her knowledge of the interrelationship between sustainable urban development and natural/man-made crises. She recently began her doctoral studies at the faculty of planning at the University of Montreal, Canada. Her research interest is disaster management with a particular interest in post-disaster reconstruction. She studies the relationship between the country’s responses to disasters and development. Her current research aims to understand communities’ needs as architects and propose sustainable solutions to bridge the gaps between the needs and the services provided. In this event, Fatma will be discussing the first humanitarian crisis, urgent needs, disaster intervention and challenges. She will talk about the planning and decision-making process and its impact on the environment. Then she will introduce briefly how Geographic Information Systems (GIS) were used in intervention and coordination. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from one of the leading experts in the field. Join us for “Post-Disaster Recovery Efforts After 2023 Earthquakes and Flooding in Türkiye” and discover how technology can help us build more resilient communities. * If you are looking for help please check the Canadian Red Cross fundraising portal here: https://www.redcross.ca/turkiyesyriaappeal/IEEESIGHTMontreal. and Turkish Philanthropy Funds here: https://donate.tpfund.org/team/496882 ** see funding opportunities: (https://htb.ieee.org/funding-opportunities/projects/ ) Speaker(s): Fatma Özdoğan Agenda: 5:00 p.m. – 5:10 p.m.: Welcome and introduction by IEEE SIGHT MTL 5:10 p.m. – 5:20 p.m.: Presentation by IEEE Turkey Section 5:20 p.m. – 5:50 p.m.: Presentation by Fatma Ozdogan 5:50 p.m. – 6:10 p.m.: Questions & Answers 6:10 p.m. – 6:25 p.m.: Fundraising announcements 6:25 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.: Thank you and conclusion Virtual: https://events.vtools.ieee.org/m/353000
