*ICT-DM'2017 : Fourth International Conference on Information and
Communication Technologies for Disaster Management*

* December, 11-13, 2017 (Münster, Germany)*

*Important dates:*

Submission Deadline     June 1, 2017

Notification Due              September 15, 2017

Final Version Due            October 1, 2017

*ICT-DM’2017 *aims to bring together academics and practitioners who are
involved in emergency services, ad hoc planning, disaster recovery, etc.,
to learn about the latest research developments, 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Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that present original unpublished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, as well as
practitioners involved in applied‐focused research.


Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following scope:

·         Big data analytics in disaster management

·         Cloud computing

·         Communication infrastructures, technologies and services for
crisis management
