A mock disaster drill at RESCUE-2016

Due to climate change, fast urbanisation and unsteady political situations, disasters occur more often than before

This conference is sponsored by IEEE, IEEE Computer Society, and IEEE Technical Committee of Scalable Computing (TCSC).

Conference dates: 21-23 June 2017
Extended paper submission deadline: 31 March 2017

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.

RESCUE-2017 workshop

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.

The latest developments 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, make the establishment of instant communication infrastructure possible and maintains a smooth communication system for disaster management.

The aim of this special session, in line 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. 


Topics to be covered in this special session include, but are not limited to:

  • 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
  • l) Human Computer Interaction for disaster management
  • m) Practice and experience from disaster management
  • n) Government policies for disaster management
  • o) Standardisation for disaster management
