2021 Workshop on AI & Simulation for Natural Disaster Management

Call for Presentation
2021 Workshop on Artificial Intelligence and Simulation for Natural Disaster Management
Online – July 01, 2021

Co-located with the

DESCRIPTION

The intersection of artificial intelligence (AI) and simulation may contribute to the advance of natural disaster management. AI tools and simulation models, however, have to embed the required features and capabilities in order to be useful on real-world situations. Hence, the collaboration with field experts and policy-makers in the natural disaster domain becomes essential.

The workshop aims to gather together and build a community of researchers, disaster responders, and policy-makers interested in developing and applying Artificial Intelligence (AI) and simulation techniques for natural disaster management.

This workshop is relevant because it will help to create a bridge between technology experts and disaster management practitioners aligning their understand, interpretation, and expectations of each other enabling an environment for the exchange of ideas.

The workshop will be composed of a set of presentation sessions for the sharing experiences and perspectives on natural disaster management. Policy-makers and disaster responders will present how a disaster response plans are respectively designed and executed on the field, while researchers will introduce AI and simulation tools that can be used to support on natural disaster management tasks.

You are invited to present at the Artificial Intelligence and Simulation for Natural Disaster Management workshop held online on July 01, 2021.
