ICT-DM'2015 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unpublished research on using ICTs for detection, prevention,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. In this way, the
conference will provide a forum for supporting and encouraging both
academic researchers and practitioners involved in application focused
