Call For Papers

The workshop on “Distributed Systems for Coordinated Disaster Management (CORDIM 2016)” intends to bring together researchers and practitioners from academia, government, NGO and industry in areas related to disaster management in order to gain experience and insight into the challenges that such environments pose for the people. The workshop is dedicated to the dissemination of original contributions that discusses solutions required to combat disaster situation. We expect submission from a wide ranging discipline and expect the workshop to be a meeting point for cross-discipline discussion whereby various facets of disaster management would get highlighted. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

1. Human Experiences in the Design of Crisis Response and Management Services and Systems
• Planning, Foresight and Risk Analysis
• Social Media and Collaborative Systems
• Dynamics of Need Analysis, Monitoring and Assessment
• Emergency and Disaster Prediction
• Collaborative decision-making
• Social Science aspects of Emergency Response and Disaster Management

2. Distributed Systems for Disaster Management
• Collaborative information systems architectures, technologies, and algorithms for crisis management
• Cooperative communication in Disaster Management
• Context awareness for distributed resource management
• Architectures, Middleware, Prototypes, and Test-beds for Distributed Disaster Management
• Reliability, resiliency and fault tolerance techniques in distributed environment
• Distributed Decision Support Methods for Complex Crises
• Crowdsourcing platform for disaster preparedness and post disaster rescue/relief operation

3. Enabling Technologies and Systems
• Social Networking for Crisis Management
• Geographical Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management
• Early Warning and Alerting Systems,
• Ad-Hoc Mobile Networks
• Opportunistic and Delay-tolerant Networks
• Data gathering, fusion, Routing, Dissemination, and Caching in Delay Tolerant Network/ Opportunistic Networks
• Security, Trust, Privacy, and Cooperation issues in Delay Tolerant Networks/ Opportunistic Networks
• Mobility models
• Interfaces and Methods for Interconnection of Heterogeneous Networks and Devices
• System Architectures, Resource Discovery, Retrieval, Scheduling, Allocation, Monitoring
• Heterogeneous Wireless Connectivity Management
