This volume results from the “Second International Conference on Dynamics of Disasters” held in Kalamata, Greece, June 29-July 2, 2015. The conference covered particular topics involved in natural and man-made disasters such as war, chemical spills, and wildfires. Papers in this volume examine the finer points of disasters through:

  • Critical infrastructure protection
  • Resiliency
  • Humanitarian logistic
  • Relief supply chains
  • Cooperative game theory
  • Dynamical systems
  • Decision making under risk and uncertainty
  • Spread of diseases
  • Contagion
  • Funding for disaster relief
  • Tools for emergency preparedness
  • Response, and risk mitigation
Multi-disciplinary theories, tools, techniques and methodologies are linked with disasters from mitigation and preparedness to response and recovery. The interdisciplinary approach to problems in economics, optimization, government, management, business, humanities, engineering, medicine, mathematics, computer science, behavioral studies, emergency services, and environmental studies will engage readers from a wide variety of fields and backgrounds.
