Project Title:

The Future of Emergency Alert and Warning Systems: Research Directions
PIN: DEPS-CSTB-15-02        

Major Unit:

Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences

Sub Unit: Computer Science & Telecommuncations Board DEPS

RSO: Bacon Talati, Virginia

Subject/Focus Area: Behavioral and Social Sciences; Computers and Information Technology; Resilience

Project Scope
An ad hoc committee will review current knowledge about how to effectively deploy and use emergency alert and warning systems and explore related future computing, engineering, and social science research needs.  A workshop will be convened to capture results from recent research to include work sponsored by the Department of Homeland Security's Science and Technology Directorate and to foster dialog among technologists, social science researchers, and emergency managers.  The study committee's report will summarize results from the DHS research, provide an overview of current knowledge about emergency alerts and warnings and their relationship to citizen interactions and information needs, and set forth an interdisciplinary agenda for research that will highlight gaps and future needs.

Project Duration: 12 months
