Computing for Disaster Management Visioning

CCC Blog (03/22/12) Erwin Gianchandani

The Computing Community Consortium and the U.S. National Science Foundation are co-sponsoring a visioning workshop on computing for disaster management, which will identify ways in which fundamental computing research can advance the field of emergency response and recovery.  The workshop’s organizers say the unique attributes of disasters pose hidden computing challenges in real-time data sensing, visualization, analysis, and prediction capabilities for on-the-fly decision-making, which can serve to advance emergency response and recovery as well as drive forward the field of computer and information science and engineering.  The workshop will include U.S. leaders in academia, the public sector, and industry.  Participants will meet with scientists and practitioners outside their areas of expertise in order to share and identify multi-disciplinary opportunities.
