Call For Papers

The second international workshop on the Internet of Things for Emergency Management (IoT4Emergency) will be held virtually (as well as in presence) on November 8, during the main IoT2021 conference in St. Gallen, Switzerland. IoT4Emergency aims to bring together academics and practitioners who use information and communication technologies to design emergency services.

The workshop covers all areas of emergency management that use information and communication technologies. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Hardware and software infrastructures for emergency handling
• Sensing, networking, processing, and actuation for emergency management
• ICT for collaborative working during COVID-19
• Social distancing systems for COVID-19
• Humans (people, emergency managers, developers, firefighters, etc.) in IoT systems
• ICT-based emergency situational awareness
• Disaster communication infrastructures, technologies, and services
• Disaster decision support technologies
• Microservices design for emergency
• HCI for disaster preparation
• Self-adaptation and self-adaptive architectures for disaster
• Quality of Software-oriented disaster management
• Social-behavioral analysis of endangered people
• Big data processing for hazards
• IoT-robotics systems for disaster handling
• Remote sensing and cyber-physical systems
• Wireless network-based solutions for disaster management
• Modeling and simulation for crisis and disaster situations
• Prediction and early warning systems
• Crowd and queue management systems
• Emergency traffic management systems
• Real-world applications and field studies
• Indoor/outdoor emergency evacuation

IoT4Emergency seeks the following types of papers: original technical papers, industry papers, position papers, or practical case studies of no more than 8 pages.
Authors should consult ACM authors’ guidelines ( and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or Microsoft Word, for the preparation of their papers. All submitted papers will undergo a rigorous peer-review process. Papers will be selected based on originality, quality, soundness, and relevance.
