Call for Submissions

Different types of natural and man-made hazards cause significant losses of life and property every year. Evacuation is a widely used proactive action to reduce loss of life by moving threatened residents from the risk area to safer places during disasters. Incident commanders need to take into account the factors concerning the human, built, and natural environments before they make effective protective action recommendations.
Evacuation research plays a significant role in emergency management. The past decade has witnessed a paradigm shift in evacuation research characterized by system coupling and interdisciplinary collaboration. We aim to build a network for evacuation research through this session, and we welcome papers that are related to evacuation in different types of natural or man-made hazards (e.g., hurricanes, wildfires, tornadoes, earthquakes, and earthquakes), and that address one or more of the following topics:
• The coupling of different human and natural systems in evacuation research.
• Relevant case studies on humans’ evacuation behaviors in different disasters.
• New models or techniques to track or predict the progression of different hazards.
• New techniques or systems for evacuation warnings.
• New methods and techniques in evacuation modeling and planning.
• The use of open-source tools in evacuation research.
• New computer systems in evacuation research or practice.
• Relevant studies on shelters in evacuations.
• The use of new geospatial technologies in evacuation research and/or practice.
• The use of big data in evacuation research and/or practice.

Interested participants can email your identification number (PIN) and abstract to Dapeng Li (dapeng.li@sdstate.edu) or Kevin Ash (kash78@ufl.edu) by November 17, 2019.
