Call For Papers

ICT-DM’2017 aims to bring together academics and practitioners who are involved in emergency services, ad hoc planning, disaster recovery, etc., to learn about the latest research developments, share experiences and information about this area and develop recommendations.
Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that present original unpublished research on using ICTs for detection, prevention, preparation, response and recovery of disasters. There will also be invited presentations by experts from academia, industry, and government as well as special sessions dedicated to case studies, demonstrations and experiences based on pragmatic approaches. This way, the conference will provide a forum for supporting and encouraging both academic researchers, as well as practitioners involved in applied‐focused research.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following scope:
► Big data analytics in disaster management
► Cloud computing
► Communication infrastructures, technologies and services for crisis management
► Context-aware computing
► Coordination, collaboration and decision support technologies and systems for disaster management
► Crowd sourcing
► Cyber security
► Cyber-physical systems
► Data mining from multiple information and huge sources
► Data/information management and analysis for disaster management
► Disaster relief logistics
► E-governance
► Evacuation and rescue geo-planning
► Geo-Information technologies for disaster management
► Human-system interactive information extraction
► ICT-CDM technologies in developing countries
► Internet of things for disaster and emergency management
► Interoperability of heterogeneous systems
► M2M communications management and operations
► Mobile and wireless communication networks
► Modeling and simulation tools for crisis and disaster situations
► Ontology based approaches
► Open source data and space based resources to support disaster management
► Opportunistic communications
► Pervasive and mobile computing
► Prediction and early warning systems
► Querying and filtering on heterogeneous, multi-source streaming disaster data
► Remote sensing
► Risk, damage and loss assessment
► Security and privacy issues in information sharing
► Sensor networks
► Service Oriented Architectures
► Situation awareness
► Smart cities for disaster and emergency management
► Social media and networks
► UAVs for crisis and disaster management
► Uncertainty and possibly adversity in data handling and delivery
