January-March 2024 Pervasive computing technologies have much to offer in
times of crisis. Some crises are acute, happening over a relatively short
period of time, such as natural disasters. Others are chronic and continue
at different levels over a much longer period, such as the climate crisis
or racial violence. Technologies can support people training for or
experiencing different types of crises, including: first responders such as
those performing search and rescue or fighting seasonal wildfires,
volunteers coordinating with professionals to manage response to natural
disasters, communities dealing with public health crises such as the opioid
epidemic, gun violence, or gender-based violence, soldiers, government and
NGO officials, and local and displaced populations in regions affected by
geopolitical crises such as war, indigenous communities using drones to
monitor their borders, individuals and populations affected by PTSD and
other forms of psychological trauma after surviving or responding to a
crisis. This special issue aims to provide a broad view on the many
different ways that pervasive computing technology is being used to support
either acute or chronic crisis situations, whether training in preparation
for, deployment during, or recovery after such situations. This special
issue invites articles covering a wide range of topics including innovative
computing methods, technologies, design and evaluation studies of their use
and impact in practice, surveys, and vision papers. All investigations must
include thorough and appropriate evaluations of their approaches and
methods. In particular, we are seeking article submissions for this issue
around topics such as (but not limited to): Sensor networks for use in
crisis situations Techniques for gaining and disseminating situational
awareness Technology for social support, resilience, prevention, and
interventions addressing psychological trauma and health issues Novel
approaches to maintaining communication and organization under adverse
conditions Roles for wearable computing and physiological monitoring of
both first responders, soldiers, or victims Integration of diverse digital
and networked devices (robots, drones, etc.) Pervasive computing techniques
applied to robust and self-healing systems for extreme environments
Cybersecurity protocols for pervasive computing infrastructure in hostile
environments Pervasive technologies used to train personnel to respond to
crisis situations Open-source initiatives and experiences to develop
pervasive applications to support populations in crisis Human-centered
design and evaluation of crisis-support applications Submission Guidelines
For author information and guidelines on submission criteria, please visit
the Pervasive Computing’s Author Information page. Please submit papers
through the ScholarOne system, and be sure to select the special issue
name. Manuscripts should not be published or currently submitted for
publication elsewhere. Please submit only full papers intended for review,
not abstracts, to the ScholarOne portal. Questions? Please contact the
