Collective Sensing, Trust, and Resilience in Global Crises

Co-located with Web Search and Data Mining (WSDM 2018)
Los Angeles, California, USA. February 9th, 2018.

The workshop homepage can be found at:


To reflect the broad scope of topics relevant to this year's theme:
"Collective Sensing, Trust, and Resilience in Global Crises", we
encourage submissions on interdisciplinary research topics within the
contexts of crisis informatics, risk, and disaster management.
The workshop will include a variety of submissions including regular
papers, short papers, and software system demonstrations in addition
to invited talks.  

Each submission will be evaluated by at least two program committee members.


The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
* Ubiquitous and collective intelligence for enhancing
  disaster response and resilience
* Trust and credibility models, rumor and false
  information management for community contributions
* Disaster-related data mining and knowledge management
  challenges and solutions
* Data management and aggregation for crisis data
* Extraction of actionable insights; interpretability of
  machine intelligence
* Event detection and impact analysis
* Practical requirements of disaster response professionals
* Novel crowdsourcing platforms for disaster management
* Scaling up collaboration to large numbers of end users and volunteers
* Datasets for studying crisis informatics
* Evaluation and experimentation of emergency management
  and disaster response systems
* Case studies, best practices, and experience reports


* Submission deadline: December 1, 2017
* Acceptance notification: December 15, 2017
* Workshop date: February 9, 2018


The workshop accepts the following types of submissions:
1. Papers including research results, position papers, and practice and
   experience reports, having 5-6 pages (regular), or 2-4 pages (short).
2. Demo proposals describing a prototype or system, up to a maximum of
   2 pages.

Research papers and position papers (regular and short) should be
clearly positioned with respect to previous work, and convey clearly
the importance of the contribution for the disaster management and/or
humanitarian response community. Research papers should describe the
methodology used and the obtained results in as much detail as possible,
including a comparison with state-of-the-art methods when appropriate.
Practice and experience reports (regular and short) should describe
insights obtained in a real-world scenario of interaction between social
media and disaster management and/or humanitarian response efforts.
Demo proposals should describe the system of prototype that will be
demonstrated to attendees, including intended users, and the relevance
for the disaster management and/or emergency response community.
The demonstrated systems can go from a functional prototype to a
completed application.

Papers should be formatted using ACM SIG templates/guidelines. Note that
unlike previous years, accepted submissions will not be published in a
formal proceedings volume. Instead, authors of accepted papers will be
asked to provide a link to a publicly-accessible archive of their paper,
e.g. in arxiv-cs.
