The 5th International Conference on Information and Communication
Technologies for Disaster Management (ICT-DM'2018) aims to bring
together academics and practitioners who are involved in emergency
services, ad hoc planning, disaster recovery, etc., to learn about the
latest researchdevelopments, 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manuscripts that present original unpublished research on using ICTs for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, aswell as practitioners involved
in applied-focused research. The conference accepts three types of
submissions, specifically full papers (5 to 8 pages), short papers (3 to
4 pages), and posters & demos (1 to 2 pages). The presented full and
short papers will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore. The posters
& demos will not be included in the conference proceedings. Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to:

- Big data analytics in disaster management
- Cloud computing, context-aware computing, mobile computing
- Communication infrastructures, technologies and services
- Coordination, collaboration and decision support technologies
- Crowd sourcing, remote sensing, cyber-physical systems
- Data/information mining and management
- Disaster relief logistics, E-governance, evacuation and rescue
- Internet of things for disaster and emergency management
- Interoperability of heterogeneous systems
- Modeling and simulation tools for crisis and disaster situations
- Open source data and space based resources
- Performance measurement, prediction and early warning systems
- Querying and filtering on heterogeneous, multi-source disaster data
- Risk, damage and loss assessment
- Security and privacy issues in information sharing
- Service oriented architectures, situation awareness
- Social media and networks
- Uncertainty and possibly adversity in data handling and delivery
- Web mapping and Geographic Information Systems (GIS)
- Wireless networks based solutions for disaster management
- Other related topics in the domain of ICT-DM
