Following the success of Mobile Response 2007, we’d like to announce 
the continuation of this event in 2008 and invite paper submissions 
to Mobile Response 2008, the International Symposium on Mobile 
Information Technology for Emergency Response. 
The gap between the great potential benefit that usable mobile IT 
could yield in the domain of emergency response and the specific 
design challenges for such technologies in this particularly 
demanding domain was the foundation of our decision to create a 
new venue for researchers and practitioners from different 
disciplines. Mobile Response 2008 aims at a focussed exchange on 
how mobile information technology can be effectively used to the 
benefit of emergency response. The symposium will present the 
latest approaches and technical solutions in the area of mobile 
information technology for emergency response planning and execution. 
We invite participation from research, industry and public rescue 
organizations to enable an in-depth discussion of the opportunities 
and drawbacks of new digital technologies for emergency response.

Symposium Topics

* Mobile and wearable computing
* Context-aware applications
* Geographic information systems and location-based services
* Rescue operation management and decision support systems
* Multimedia and multimodal communication systems
* Requirements, design and empirical foundations
* System support for cross-organizational cooperation
* Critical infrastructure protection
* Strategies for involving the general public
* Information systems for environmental monitoring

Paper Submission

Authors are invited to submit extended abstracts of not more than 
5 pages reporting research contributions, practice and experience, 
or novel applications. All contributions submitted to Mobile 
Response 2008 must be original, unpublished work. Contributions must 
be written and presented in English. Accepted final papers should not 
exceed 10 pages. Please submit your contributions to the following 
address in electronic form: [log in to unmask]  

It is planned to publish proceedings again in Springer’s Lecture 
Notes in Computer Science.
