It is my honor to invite you to attend the seminar Human Factors, Logistics & Sensor Technology in Emergency Management which will be held in FCT/UNL Library Auditorium, Campus de Caparica, Portugal at January 11, 2012.

This seminar results from a partnership between American and Portuguese researchers that combined efforts to work in one research field of utmost importance– Emergency Management.

In fact, Emergency Management has been receiving increased attention. This results from the recent occurrence of large scale of natural and technological disasters and also of terrorism around the world causing enormous human lives losses and also economic losses.

There is still large room for improvement in many domains of the Emergency Management and academia can contribute to enhance the effectiveness and efficiency of the tools and procedures that support the activity of emergency responders and the decision makers.

This seminar is organized by the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering - FCT-UNL and the Center for Technology and Systems - UNINOVA and funded by the National Science Foundation.

The seminar participation is free of charge but registration is required. For registration please send an email to: Isabel L. Nunes 

Hope to see you here,
