===================================================================== Scope
ICT-DM'2014 is the inaugural edition for a new conference event on the use
of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in Disaster Management.
The conference aims to bring together academics and practitioners who are
involved in the emergency services, emergency planning, disaster management
and allied professions, to learn about latest developments, share research,
experiences and information about this area.
Disasters are events that cause dramatic losses of life and property and
disrupt the normal functioning of the economy and society on a large scale.
Disaster management is multifaceted process for developing strategies to
reduce the impact of disasters and provide assistance to affected
populations. Disaster management involves information- and
communication-intensive activities before, during and after disaster
strikes. The revolutionary potential of ICTs lies in their ability to
instantly and continuously facilitate rapid communication and flow of
information, capital, ideas, people and products. Because of this
potential, ICTs have made incredible leaps in their usefulness for many
application areas and this makes everyone agrees to consider that they have
the potential to revolutionize the disaster management area too.
The conference will include paper presentations describing original work on
the current state of research and practices in technologies and systems for
prevention, preparation, response and recovery of disasters. The themes
include (but are not limited to) emergency communication, collaboration and
coordination, decision enhancement systems, security and privacy,
geo-information and space technologies, multi-sensor data collection,
information dissemination and early warning and standardization efforts.
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
practice-focused research.
ICT-DMâ2014 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 appliedâfocused research.
