This conference is on Zoom but it has interactive elements to highlight ways we leverage emerging technologies:

  • Make your mark - help launch an e-NABLE blockchain with the genesis block forged by the co-inventor of blockchain (and possibly Satoshi Nakamoto himself), Scott Stornetta.
  • Communicate with shared brainstorming and idea maps
  • Capture your SWOT analysis to use during community planning and awards at the end of the conference
  • Use the first AR app for play and as an environment for design, slicing and 3D printing
  • Experiment with free 3D scanning and digital design apps used in the community
  • Explore Drone League simulations for accessible play and infrastructure jobs
  • Resource links, and hands on time to explore them with brief guidance
    • Training and certification resources
    • Fundraising resources and database guidance
    • NFT forging platforms
    • Curriculumvexchanges and design repositories
    • Design documentation tools
    • Working with special communities; translation resources
    • Working with media
    • Resources for recipients and device candidates, new members of the community to getting started

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 16 - e-NABLE DEVICES: Governments' Guidelines, Recipients and Medical Advisors' Feedback. 9:30 AM - 5 PM Eastern

Keynote: FDA Speakers Review Guidelines for hands and arms designated "Class One Medical Devices, With Exceptions," emergency use designations during the pandemic, their international collaborations on standards and work within government on identifying workforce skills.

Device Review: Recipients and Medical Advisors will share their perspectives in a review of the e-NABLE device designs

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 17 - DISASTER RESPONSE, RECOVERY AND RESILIENCE. 1 - 5 PM Eastern

Keynote: Maker Asylum will share their experience as a makerspace that led innovation, testing, manufaturing and distribution as COVID tested communities and supply chains globally. Known around the world for making 1 million pieces of PPE in the first 49 days of the pandemic, the adventure in 2021 continued. How they used global programming is leading innovation of oxygen concentrators, survived a tornado and power outages, and used AR in a virtual SDG School for makers and entrepreneurs.

Workshops and Presentations: Making SDG Solutions Accessible; Mental Health Resilience; Supporting Innovators; e-NABLED Makerspaces - Staying Open and Make a Difference

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 23 - 9:30 AM - 5 PM Eastern - Updates and Invitations to e-NABLE EDUCATION AND RESEARCH, from 3D Printing to Blockchain for Humanitarian Purposes

Keynote: Joshua Pearce, Ph.D, a key Open Hardware innovator, shares his labs' latest updates on key areas of interest in the e-NABLE ecosystem: recycling plastic for 3D printing; making high temperature printers; addressing food insecurity.

Frontiers: Scott Stornetta, PhD, the father of blockchain and Bitcoin: "Blockchain for Humanitarian Use." Stornetta co-invented blockchain in 1991 and was cited several times by Satoshi Nakamoto in the 2004 paper that launched Bitcoin. Some have speculated that Stornetta is Satoshi. An interactive talk: Build an e-NABLE blockchain off of Stornetta's genesis block and discuss our next steps in leveraging blockchain for humanitarian use.
