Invitation to the ICA Symposium on Early Warning and Crisis Management in the Big Data Era

The ICA Symposium on Early Warning and Disaster Risk Management for Urban Areas in Big Data Era is being reconvened following the success of the previous meetings. This series of symposiums aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and domain experts to share their research results on all aspects of Early Warning (EW) and Crises Management (CM). Recent major disasters such as earthquakes, floods, hurricanes and landslides have resulted in huge losses in terms of human life and property destruction in urban areas. Therefore, policies, mechanisms and solutions to handle the increasing risk of disasters is urgently needed. Organizers would like to provide an interdisciplinary platform for researchers, practitioners and educators to discuss the most recent innovations, trends, challenges and practical solutions of EW and CM for Urban Areas in the Big Data Era.

The event will be held on 1–3 December 2018 at Shenzhen University, Shenzhen.

Deadline for the submission of abstracts is 31 October 2018.

Further details and important dates can be found on the conference website: conf.fishmap.site
