EN4PPDR 2018 - 5th IEEE Emergency Networks for Public Protection and Disaster Relief Workshop



VenueLimassol, Cyprus Cyprus



Topics/Call fo Papers

The EN4PPDR workshop aims to gather researchers and experts working in the field of public safety, emergency response, protection, relief and recovery of critical infrastructures.
Disasters, natural or not, may occur on a metropolitan (e.g. building collapse, airplane crash,…) or on a large scale (e.g. earthquake, forest fire, flooding,..) and may involve critical infrastructures as well (e.g. gas pipelines, electric power systems, telecommunications networks,...).
Therefore, protection of critical infrastructures, on one hand, helps an effective emergency response on the other it plays a fundamental role in saving human lives, protecting property and recovering from system failure.
The workshop's very large area of interests includes, but is not limited to, wireless technologies, network architectures, transmission protocols, spectrum management, fast deployable systems, interoperability, crisis management, data fusion systems, secure communications, standardization activities, first responder equipment, network topologies, and resilience.
Submission of results from research activities, demonstrations, test-bed and prototype testing are encouraged from universities, research institutes, industries, and companies.
Joint papers from different institutions are welcome.

High-quality full papers which at the time of submission are not under review and have not already been published or accepted for publication elsewhere are solicited. The first page should include the paper's title, the abstract, a list of keywords indicating the paper's topic area(s), the authors' full names, affiliations, and e-mail addresses.
All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings and by the IEEE and will be accessible via IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Authors are required to submit fully formatted papers (PDF), with graphs, images, and other special types arranged as intended for the final publication. Papers should be written in English conforming to the IEEE standard conference format (8.5" x 11" - US letter, Two-Column). The final manuscript for publication will be limited to 8 IEEE pages.
