The 5th International Conference on Information and Communication Technologi=
es for Disaster Management (ICT-DM=E2=80=992018) aims to bring together acad=
emics and practitioners who are involved in emergency services, ad hoc plann=
ing, disaster recovery, etc., to learn about the latest researchdevelopments=
, share experiences and information about this area and develop recommendati=
ons. Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that present original unpubli=
shed research on using ICTs for detection, prevention,preparation, response a=
nd recovery of disasters. There will also be invited presentations by expert=
s from academia, industry, and government as well as special sessions dedica=
ted to case studies, demonstrations and experiences based on pragmatic appro=
aches. This way, the conference will provide a forum for supporting and enco=
uraging both academic researchers, aswell as practitioners involved in appli=
ed-focused research. The conference accepts three types of submissions, spec=
ifically full papers (5 to 8 pages), short papers (3 to 4 pages), and poster=
s & demos (1 to 2 pages). The presented full and short papers will be submit=
ted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore. The posters & demos will not be included i=
n the conference proceedings. Topics of interest include, but are not limite=
