Theme

Adapting to the new normal through online learning and e-services in health, education, and entrepreneurship.


For almost two years now, the world has had to do things differently. The COVID-19 outbreak forced educational institutions to shift towards online learning. This emphasized the importance of technology, especially in the education sector. The pandemic disrupted traditional economic activities and created a new world of work. Innovative ways of doing business developed in response to lockdowns and quarantines. Adaptive protocols and apps helped prevent the overload of the healthcare system and workforce. The Internet has been crucial to continued social interactions and services amidst the new challenges around the world.


Presentation Material

Presentation materials for the APNG Camp should be in line with one of the following topics:


ONLINE EDUCATION – initiatives, applications, or Internet technologies that enable students, teachers, parents, and school administration to make online classes more effective and efficient. This includes tools, software and processes used for online learning, webinars, online workshops, conferences, and expos.


HEALTHCARE – health-related initiatives, projects, and Internet technologies that mitigate and improve the condition of individuals and organizations as they address the pandemic. This includes programs implemented to help ease the unexpected influx of patients in hospitals and efficiently manage limited resources.


ENTREPRENEURSHIP – initiatives, projects, and Internet technologies that help develop start-ups and transform existing businesses to adapt to the new normal and be locally and globally competitive. This includes new ways of utilizing social media for business delivery and continuity and consumer safety and convenience.


OTHER RELATED TECHNOLOGIES AND POLICIES – other ways and means by which private and public organizations have adjusted their traditional operations to protect and ensure safe and secure implementation of procedures. This includes blockchain, digital badges, online payments, and online donation platforms.


We welcome diverse presentation formats from academic research papers to case studies, projects in progress, and creative products such as posters and videos.
