Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This special issue is focused on topics encompassing the new research area on Emergency Management and Communications.

It addresses the complex networked and distributed systems that are designed to provide an optimum response and outcome in the presence of potentially dangerous emergencies, such as natural disasters, industrial or environmental catastrophic events, or terrorist attacks. In such contexts a combination of sensing, communication and distributed decision making are needed to be able to guide evacuees, allocate emergency resources and services, direct first responders, preserve life, improve health and limit damage to the physical and natural infrastructure.
