The 3rd International Workshop on Social Web for Disaster Management (SWDM’15) will be co-located with the WWW’15 conference (May 2015, Florence, Italy).
This workshop, now in its 3rd edition, provides a venue for research on disaster management as it relates to the real-time social web. Social Media in Emergency Management (SMEM) is an area that attracts researchers across a variety of specialties (e.g. natural language processing, machine learning, geographical information systems).
These different perspectives are connected by social media as a common data source, and by disaster management as a common task. This workshop brings together researchers who strive to meet the urgent needs of the public and disaster response professionals during a crisis, by creating and improving Web-enabled disaster management methods and systems.
SWDM’15 invites submissions in the following workshop topics. Each submission will be evaluated by at least 3 program committee members. Accepted submissions will be published by ACM and included in the ACM Digital Library. To find out more about the Workshop and the submission process, click here.
