Call For Papers

Welcome to The 3rd International Conference on Disaster Response and Management held from August 29-31, 2017 at the Mitsui Garden Hotel in Hiroshima, Japan. This conference will be jointly held alongside The International Conference on Sustainable Business and Development in Asia. Presenters of these international, peer-reviewed conferences will receive certificates of presentation and inclusion in the proceedings.

In addition, all registered participants will be provided with a free, guided tour in English of Hiroshima Peace Park, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Following the tour, there will be a welcome reception with an all you-can-eat-and-drink-menu.

About DREAM 2017

While natural disasters may seem to be increasing in frequency, devastation and loss of life, the simple truth is that earthquakes, tsunamis, floods, hurricanes, volcanic eruptions, mudslides, tornadoes, droughts, wildfires and other natural phenomena, occur as frequently today as they did 100 years ago. The difference today, however, is that the rise in the global population and urbanization of areas and regions simply means that more people will be affected when a natural disaster occurs. In addition, advances in media technology and information sharing have made it possible for both natural disasters to be watched in real time, such as the 2011 Tohoku earthquake and tsunami in Japan and the subsequent nuclear disaster in Fukushima.

Not only has media and technology improved warning systems and emergency services, but also data collection and research has improved the tracking of disasters. Despite advancements in technology, building construction, equipment and training and preparedness, there is still difficulty in implementing and integrating disaster response and management resources effectively.

How can technology be applied more effectively to predict, prevent and prepare for natural and man-made disasters? What changes in infrastructure, building codes and civil engineering could help avert disasters or reduce the loss of lives? What role, if any, does climate change play in disasters? What advancements in public health could augment the role of emergency services? How can advanced countries train developing countries to respond to disasters?

DREAM 2017 welcomes academics, practitioners, healthcare and emergency service professionals, nurses, humanitarian aid specialists, rescue workers, and first-responders from police and fire departments as well as the military to explore these questions and share knowledge regarding the latest developments in the fields of disaster response and management.

With the theme of Get Prepared, Stay Prepared, we welcome proposals of 250 words in English by Friday, June 30, 2017 on the following streams:
