DCEM 2011, co-organised by the EUREKA Celtic FT-PSC project and The International Emergency Management Society (TIEMS), is an event designed to gather together scientists, engineers, technology professionals, academics, foundations, government and non-government organisations, and individuals engaged in the fields of humanitarian assistance, emergency and crisis management and disaster relief.

The aim of the event is to discuss and develop integrated interoperable solutions for present and future Disater Control (DC) and Emergency Management (EM) needs.

The modern international DC and EM operations involve a large number of diverse groups of participants, technological components, tools, decision making and decision support processes, and have often complex political background.

This workshop will provide an opportunity to share ideas, meet with CM/EM/CIIP specialists, create new projects and discuss with funders; the audience will include technologists, representatives from decision makers, industry, funders and academia.
