TRACK DESCRIPTION: This track invites contributions that enhance understanding of Ethical, Legal and Social Issues (ELSI) around information and communication technology in crisis response and management. The aim is to inform careful innovation. To do so, we are looking for papers that explore ELSI at the juncture of policy, technology, and communities or where social and organizational practices meet.

The number and range of technologies seen as critical to crisis management is growing. These include smart city technology, command and control systems, risk analysis and decision support, geo-spatial information and GIS, mesh networking, cloud computing, mobile and wearable devices, sensors, drones, robots, social media, modelling, simulation, visual and big data analytics. Their use shapes our understanding of the emergency, and they can enable more informed, agile and coordinated emergency management. But these emergent technologies can also introduce new uncertainties, such as technological failure, disruptive transformations of practice and far-reaching societal implications. The ‘informationalization’ of emergency services that arises with the interaction with these technologies poses a plethora of ethical, legal and social challenges and opportunities. We list some core topics below and invite practitioner reports, academic papers and demonstrations of technologies.

Track topics include, but are not limited to investigations into theories and practices of:

  • Digital divides, access, and exclusions: citizens, non-citizens, communities, responders
  • Data protection, transformations of privacy, privacy preserving technologies
  • Cultural and social aspects of information practices and information sharing
  • Societal issues such as trust, transparency, surveillance, militarization of everyday life, culture of fear, and opportunities (e.g. drones for good)
