The natural and human-caused disasters, such as earthquakes, epidemic, terrorist attacks, and cyberattacks, are dangerous as they can occur at any time and at any location. They pose severe threats to property, happiness, and life. In many cases, disasters are unpredictable and complex, which makes them even worse. The matter of how to survive in this unsafe era is questionable. A promising survival method is to learn about disasters and safety. However, methods for understanding them have not yet been completely established. In other words, disaster and safety education (DSE) should be strongly promoted all over the world.

Nevertheless, information and communication technology (ICT) plays a significant role in promoting DSE. For example, the simulation and virtual reality (VR) technologies realistically visualize disaster situations and enable us to think about how to survive disasters and ensure safety from a wide perspective. Currently, new ICTs have started to emerge and gain popularity worldwide, necessitating the need for comprehensively exploring various possibilities of ICT for DSE from various viewpoints (e.g., instructional design, system development, and practice). The continuous exploration of these possibilities will certainly offer sufficient outcomes and eventually establish several methods of learning about disasters and safety, ensuring safety, security, and peace globally.

This workshop, which will be held in a mini-conference style (1/2 day) in ICCE2018, aims at providing an opportunity to people with diverse backgrounds (e.g., researchers, teachers, students, developers, practitioners, and citizens) to share their ideas, experiences, and outcomes on ICT for DSE.

This workshop welcomes demonstration of the authors' developed systems; the demonstration session (time slot) will be set after all the presentations.

  • Short paper (5-6 pages)

Please download the latest version of the Paper Template file in preparing your manuscript.

This workshop practices single-blind review, i.e., the authors of the submitting papers will not know who their referees are, while the referees will be aware of the authors of the papers that they are reviewing. Anonymization is no longer required in the submitted manuscripts.
All accepted papers  will appear in one volume of workshop proceedings with ISBN and will be indexed by Elsevier Bibliographic Database. All paper should follow the paper format of the main conference.
