This email serves as a call for whitepapers for the upcoming Research & Experimentation for Local & International Emergency First Responders (RELIEF) event. RELIEF 13-3 will be held 6-9 May 2013 at the Naval Postgraduate School’s McMillan Airfield facility on the Camp Roberts, CA National Guard base.
Occurring quarterly, RELIEF is a multi-institutional, semi-structured event focused on the testing and development of humanitarian assistance & disaster response technologies and processes. RELIEF continues to seek technologies that empower and enable the affected population to rapidly assess and self-organize in the pre-response environment.
Additionally, RELIEF explores emerging technology solutions for humanitarian workers, first responders, government, military, and others involved in the humanitarian assistance and disaster relief operations both domestic and worldwide.
