Call for Papers : International Workshop On Emergency Telecommunications “From User Perspective To Field Products” 2011


International Workshop
On Emergency Telecommunications
“From User Perspective To Field Products”

6 October 2011

In conjunction with the 14th International Symposium on Wireless Personal Multimedia Communications

3-6 October, 2011

Brest, France


The field of emergency telecommunications is complex: while traditional telecommunications developments are technology driven, emergency telecommunications are user driven. Furthermore, the diversity of situations during emergencies challenges the design of multi-purpose, flexible and affordable solutions.


The objective of the EMT workshop is two-fold: provide the audience with examples of users’ practices or needs and give the floor to researchers presenting their latest results.

The workshop will start with presentations from end-users and field experience using current solutions. For the second part, the organizers are seeking high-end R&D contributions addressing the technical issues of telecommunications and bearing immediate and obvious relations with the topic of emergency telecommunications.
