Decision support in critical situations comprising complex technical, environmental and social systems is a difficult interdisciplinary research area which is based on data-driven technologies, high-performance simulation and visualization facilities. The computational concept of urgent computing is considering as computational services (or resources) as data services work jointly in distributed environment for the help decision maker to make an optimal behavior scenario in time limitations.

The main topics of the workshop are:
• Methods and the principles of urgent computing
• Urgent computing platforms and infrastructures
• Simulation-based decision support for complex systems
• Interactive visualization for decision support in emergency situations
• Domain-area applications to emergency situations, including natural disasters, transportation problems, epidemics, criminal acts, financial crisis etc.


We invite you to submit manuscripts reporting original, unpublished research and recent developments or innovative practical application in the area of urgent computing technologies and decision support systems for critical situations.

The submitted papers must not exceed ten pages in length, when typeset using the Procedia format (download Latex template with instructions or MS Word template ).

At least one author of an accepted paper should register at the conference site and present the paper at the workshop.
