6th IFIP WG5.15 Conference on
Information Technology in Disaster Risk Reduction
(ITDRR - 2021)

October 25 - 27th, 2021
Morioka, Japan

ITDRR-2021 is a sponsored event by the International Federation for Information Processing (IFIP). IFIP is a leading professional & socially responsible ICT worldwide (video).

The effects of disasters are very serious and the destruction caused may take a very long time to recover. Related damage is severe and it may cause relief expenses of billions of euros. With the increase of natural disasters that have occurred in the past years, it is expected their frequency will continue to increase in the coming years. Due to disaster risk reductions multidisciplinary nature, people from various backgrounds, such as industry, diverse geographical and global settings, not-for-profit organization backgrounds, agriculture, marine life, welfare, risk management, safety engineering and social networking services will be included.

At present, at global and national levels, a wide range of multiple scientific and scientific-applied research activity in the area of disaster risk reduction concerning individual types of disasters is conducted. Modern information and communication technologies can facilitate significantly the decision-making processes from the point of view of disaster risk reduction.

ITDRR-2021 provides an international forum for researchers and practitioners to present their latest R&D findings and innovations. The conference is especially focused on the various IT aspects and challenges of copying with disaster risk reduction. ITDDR-2021 invites experts, researchers, academicians and all other who are interested to disseminate their work. The conference establishes an academic environment that fosters the dialogue and exchange of ideas between different levels of academic, research, business and public communities.

All accepted papers will be published in IFIP AICT series by Springer as post-conference proceedings and they will be indexed by Scopus.
