The 5th International Conference on Information and Communication Technologies for Disaster Management (ICT-DM) will be held in Sendai, Japan, in December, 2018. The conference is hosted by Cyberscience Center, Tohoku University, in cooperation with committees and supporting organizations.

The 5th conference is going to visit Asia for the first time. Sendai city has experienced the great earthquake and tsunami in 2011, and information and communication technologies (ICT) played great role in relief and recovery from the disaster. This is the reason we invite the Conference to Sendai. I hope the meeting will be an opportunity to learn and discuss on latest research and practical experience on ICT for disaster management.

We invite you to join the Conference. See you in Sendai.
