Call for papers: "Assistive Technologies for Safe Operation of Complex Technological Systems"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Risk Assessment and Management.

This special issue will include papers on technologies to monitor normal and emergency conditions in complex systems, training systems, human and environmental risk assessment, emergency response and rescue systems, human factors involved in safe operation, sitting of hazardous installations, communication of risk, legal aspects and many other related topics.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 7th International Conference on Pervasive Technologies Related to Assistive Environments, but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Technologies that monitor normal and emergency conditions in complex systems
  • Recognition of critical system parameters
  • Operators training systems
  • Human and environmental risk assessment tools
  • Computer aided systems on emergency response and rescue
  • Depiction of human factors involved in safe operation,
  • IT methodologies for the siting of hazardous installations
  • Tools for the communication of risk
  • Aiding of competent authorities in applying legal aspects and any other related to the above topics

Important Dates
Manuscript submission: 30 January, 2015
