Uses of New Technologies in Disaster Science
The session is devoted to research on the new technologies that have been made possible by the contemporary merging of personal computer and the WWW (C--WWW) and how they are impacting the disaster science field.
We welcome monographs, among others, on:
a. Agent-based and other computer simulation platforms
b. C--WWW technologies impacting response activities, such as warning systems and coordination of multiple actors before and during field operations
c. C--WWW technologies allowing for the pre-positioning and appropriate use of resources in disaster operations
d. C--WWW technologies impacting the new warning systems related to hurricanes, tornadoes, tsunamis, earthquakes, floods, and volcanos.
Manuscripts are more likely to be accepted for inclusion in the session if their authors include information on how the technology is (or could be) used, how its validity has been established, and what are the limitations to their use.
