The natural and human-caused disasters, such as earthquakes, epidemic, terrorist attacks, and cyberattacks, are dangerous as they can occur at any time and at any location. They pose severe threats to property, happiness, and life. In many cases, disasters are unpredictable and complex, which makes them even worse. The matter of how to survive in this unsafe era is questionable. A promising survival method is to learn about disasters and safety. However, methods for understanding them have not yet been completely established. In other words, disaster and safety education (DSE) should be strongly promoted all over the world.
Nevertheless, information and communication technology (ICT) plays a significant role in promoting DSE. For example, the simulation and virtual reality (VR) technologies realistically visualize disaster situations and enable us to think about how to survive disasters and ensure safety from a wide perspective. Currently, new ICTs have started to emerge and gain popularity worldwide, necessitating the need for comprehensively exploring various possibilities of ICT for DSE from various viewpoints (e.g., instructional design, system development, and practice). The continuous exploration of these possibilities will certainly offer sufficient outcomes and eventually establish several methods of learning about disasters and safety, ensuring safety, security, and peace globally.
Aim and Topics
This workshop, which will be held in a mini-conference style (1/2 day) in ICCE2020, aims at providing an opportunity to people with diverse backgrounds (e.g., researchers, teachers, students, developers, practitioners, and citizens) to share their ideas, experiences, and outcomes on ICT for DSE.
This workshop welcomes a variety of topics related to ICT for DSE. Authors are invited to submit manuscripts that present original unpublished research on ICT for DSE. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following scope:
Augmented reality (AR)/mixed reality (MR)/virtual reality (VR)
Big data analytics (e.g., GPS and SNS data)
Computer network analysis and design
Cloud computing and distributed systems
Decision support system
Game-based learning and gamification
Geographic information systems
Human–computer interaction (HCI)
Image and signal processing
Internet of things (IoT)
Intuitive user interfaces
Mobile devices (e.g., smartphones and tablets) and applications
Simulation and gaming
Social networks (e.g., Facebook and Twitter)
Wearable devices (e.g., smart glasses)
Information ethics and literacy
Sociology and social science
This workshop welcomes demonstration of the authors’ developed systems; the demonstration session (time slot) will be set after all the presentations.
This workshop looks for Full and Short papers that follow the author guidelines of ICCE2020.
Full paper (8-10 pages)
Short paper (5-6 pages)
Please download the latest version of the Paper Template file in preparing your manuscript.
This workshop practices single-blind review, i.e., the authors of the submitting papers will not know who their referees are, while the referees will be aware of the authors of the papers that they are reviewing. Anonymization is no longer required in the submitted manuscripts.
Please submit your paper via EasyChair:
All accepted papers will appear in one volume of workshop proceedings with ISBN and will be indexed by Elsevier Bibliographic Database. All paper should follow the paper format of the main conference.
Submission deadline for workshop papers:
August 30, 2020 --> September 7
Acceptance notification of workshop papers: September 18, 2020
Final camera-ready version due for workshop papers: September 27, 2020
Workshop date: TBD (November 23 or 24, 1/2 day)
