MSF Scientific Days is a conference organised by Doctors Without Borders (MSF) with a focus on research and innovation towards improving humanitarian actions. This years conference was held from May 19-20 at the Royal Society of Medicine in London and brought together more than 200 people. The presentations covered different aspects of medical treatment, but also findings towards the use of geo data within MSF and the role of the Missing Maps Project.
The GIScience Research Group Heidelberg contributed to the conference by giving a talk and holding a demo session on our recent activities regarding the MapSwipe App and MapSwipe Analytics webservice. You can find out more information on this topic in our paper:

We are looking forward to the presentations of MSF Scientific Day South Asia in Delhi on 27th May. 🙂
