5th International Workshop on Emergency Response Technologies and Services (EmeRTeS 2023)
(in conjunction with ACM ICDCN 2023 at  IIT Kharagpur, India, January 7, 2023)

We are pleased to announce the 5th ACM International Workshop on Emergency Response Technologies and Services (EmeRTeS) 2023 to be held in conjunction with ICDCN 2023 at  IIT Kharagpur, India. The goal of EmeRTeS 2023 is to explore the application of new and innovative technology research towards improving emergency response and management. The focus is to provide an inter-disciplinary platform for researchers to exchange ideas, present results, share experience, stimulate new research, and foster collaborations among computer scientists, engineers, social scientists, representatives from government and non-governmental organizations and disaster science experts to develop recommendations for effective emergency response.

=== Call for Papers ===
We expect submission from a wide ranging discipline and expect the workshop to be a meeting point for cross-discipline discussion whereby various facets of disaster management would get highlighted.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
• Direct D-2-D (Device-to-Device) or Sidelink in 5G networks in ad-hoc mode
• Mesh network formation
• Access Traffic Steering Services (ATSS)
• Softwarized and modularized 5G Radio Access Network Implementations
• New KPIs for Emergency Communications
• Mapping and Visualization of First Responders
• Privacy and Security of Emergency Communications
• Blockchain applications in emergency management
• Drone Applications for Disaster Management
• UAV Swarm in Disaster Environments
• Emergency communication infrastructures, technologies and services
• Peer-to-peer networks based emergency communication systems and protocols
• Modeling and simulation tools for emergency situations
• Crowd sourcing, remote sensing, cyber-physical systems for emergency response
• Coordination, collaboration and decision support systems
• Big data analytics in emergency management
• Logistics and supply chain management in emergency response
• IoT based solutions for emergency response
• Emergency management in smart city environments
• Querying and filtering of heterogeneous, multi-source and multi-modal situational data
• Web mapping and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) for emergency response
• Emergency management information systems and applications
• Post disaster damage and loss assessment
• Planning, foresight and risk analysis
• Social media and networks for emergency response and management
• Community participation in emergency management
• COVID-19: New Challenges and Opportunities of Pandemic Disasters
• COVID-19: Lessons for Early Warning, Prevention, Preparedness and Response for Pandemic Disasters
• COVID-19: Overcoming Economic Slowdown and Financial Stress for Building Resilience to Pandemic Disasters

===Paper Submission ===
Authors are welcome to submit regular papers (6 pages) describing original ideas written in English and in PDF format. It is expected that accepted papers will be published along with the main conference papers as part of the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series (ICPS) and will be indexed by the ACM Digital Library. Authors are also welcome to submit work-in-progress papers (2 pages). In this case, final papers will be available to participants electronically, but to facilitate resubmission to more formal venues, no archival proceedings will be published, and papers will not be sent to the ACM Digital Library.
Also, papers must be formatted with ACM conference proceedings template: https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template
For each accepted workshop paper to appear in the ACM digital library, at least one author of the paper must register as a regular registrant even if he/she is a student, and the paper must be presented in the workshop by one of its authors.
Papers must be submitted electronically in printable PDF form via the Easychair page here:  https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=icdcn23
