The 2017 IEEE International Conference on Cyber, Physical, and Social Computing (CPSCom-2017)

The International Workshop on Resilient Computing Platforms and Technologies for Disaster Management (RESCUE-2017)

in conjunction with IEEE CPSCom-2017 Conference
Exeter, England, UK, 21-23 June 2017

Special Session on
RESCUE:  Resilient Computing Platforms and Technologies for Disaster Management 

Sponsored by
IEEE, IEEE Computer Society, and IEEE Technical Committee of Scalable Computing (TCSC)

The 2017 IEEE International Conference on Cyber, Physical, and Social Computing (CPSCom-2017) will provide a high-profile, leading-edge forum for researchers, engineers, and practitioners to present state-of-art advances and innovations in theoretical foundations, systems, infrastructure, tools, testbeds, and applications for the CPSCom, as well as to identify emerging research topics and define the future.

IEEE CPSCom-2017 will be held on 21-23 June 2017 in Exeter, Devon, UK. The goal of this conference is to promote community-wide discussion identifying the Computational Intelligence technologies and theories for Cyber, Physical, and Social Computing. We seek submissions of papers which invent new techniques, introduce new methodologies, propose new research directions and discuss approaches for unsolved issues.

Due to climate change, fast urbanization and unsteady political situations, disasters occur more often than before. These natural and human disasters lead to serious financial losses and human deaths. To respond to disasters, various technologies such as space technology, existing 4G and emerging 5G mobile communications and intelligent ad hoc networks are used for rescuers to manage disasters.

Latest development in smart information, communication and networking technologies, such as 5G communication, Internet of Things (IoT) networking, cloud computing, wearable devices, and video streaming technology, and versatile applications on smartphones, makes the establishment of instant communication infrastructure possible and maintains a smooth communication system for disaster management. The aim of this special session, inline with The 10th IEEE International Conference on Cyber, Physical and Social Computing, is to provide a forum for the researchers, operators, and government administrators to share the latest technical development, good practice and experience learned from dealing with disasters. 

List of Topics

a) 5G technology for disaster management

b) Mobile Edge Computing / Fog Computing for disaster management

c) Software Defined networking for disaster management

d)  Location and tracking based services for disaster management

e) Ad hoc and multi-hop wireless networks for disaster monitoring and communications

f) Internet of Things (IoT) for disaster monitoring and management

g) Cloud computing for disaster management

h) Applications of smartphones and apps for disaster management

i) Satellite communications for disaster management

j) Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) for disaster management

k) Robotics for disaster management
