Call for Papers

The 7th International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies for Disaster Management (ICT-DM 2021)


Track 1: The use of ICT in the management of epidemics or pandemics

In this track, we seek contributions, and in particular feedback, from scientists and practitioners who have been involved in, or have a direct or indirect relationship with the management of epidemic or pandemic (such as COVID-19) crises. The crises being multifaceted, we are interested in the points of view of contributors or stakeholders from different disciplines including medicine, biology, public health, politics, technology, education, economics, etc. and even multidisciplinary management experiences. Contributions involving the use of ICTs are highly desirable. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Virtual platforms and dashboards for propagation prediction, control, and monitoring

Intelligent forecasting applications or systems for early detection

Intelligent medical decision support systems

Intelligence in medical decision applications

Proximity correlation and disease propagation

Tracing systems and privacy

Open data for Covid-19 or other pandemics

Online governance (e-government is only one aspect)

Case studies and tools development for disease prediction, propagation and control

Policy, technology development, and analytics case studies

Telehealth role in epidemic or pandemic crisis

Online education (university, high school, and elementary)

Teleworking in crisis situation

Opportunities and threats of using ICTs for pandemic management in the emerging countries



Track 2: AI, Big data, ontologies and analytics for crisis managementMain Topics of Interest

In this track, we solicit contributions from researchers and practitioners that focus on big data, ontologies and analytics for crisis management. We invite submissions of unpublished and original research in these aspects. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Big data analytics in disaster management

Cloud computing

Data mining from multiple information and huge sources

Data/information management and analysis for disaster management

Artificial intelligence and machine learning for disaster management

Prediction and early warning systems

Uncertainty and possibly adversity in data handling and delivery

Ontology based approaches

Open source data and space-based resources to support disaster management

Smart communications (e.g., smart communicating gateways in the context of a crisis, ...)

Critical scheduling for crisis management



Track 3: Risk assessment, cyber security and real-time systems

In this track, we solicit contributions from researchers and practitioners that focus on risk assessment and cyber security. We invite submissions of unpublished and original research in these aspects. Topics of interest include, but not limited to, the following topics:

Cyber security

Cyber-physical systems

Security and privacy issues in information sharing

Risk, damage and loss assessment

Real-time systems



Track 4: Crowdsourcing and social media for disaster & crisis management

In this track, we solicit contributions from researchers and practitioners that focus on using crowdsourcing and social media for disaster management. We invite submissions of unpublished and original research in these aspects. Topics of interest include, but not limited to, the following topics:

Crowd sourcing

Coordination, collaboration and decision support technologies and systems for disaster management

Social media and networks

Querying and filtering on heterogeneous, multi-source streaming disaster data

Human-system interactive information extraction



Track 5: Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for Disaster Management

In this track, we solicit contributions from researchers and practitioners that focus on using crowdsourcing and social media for disaster management. We invite submissions of unpublished and original research in these aspects. Topics of interest include, but not limited to, the following topics:

Evacuation and rescue geo-planning

Geo-Information technologies for disaster management

Context-aware computing

Web mapping and Geographic Information Systems (GIS)

Situation awareness

E-governance

ICT-CDM technologies in developing countries

Track 6: IoT and wireless communications for disaster management

In this track, we solicit contributions from researchers and practitioners that focus on using IoT and wireless communications for disaster management. We invite submissions of unpublished and original research in these aspects. Topics of interest include, but not limited to, the following topics:

M2M communications management and operations

Sensor networks

Opportunistic communications

Smart cities for disaster and emergency management

Remote sensing

Communication infrastructures, technologies and services for crisis management

Mobile and wireless communication networks
