  Title Identifying functions for smartphone based applications in volunteer emergency response Type Conference Article
  Year 2019 Publication Proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response And Management Abbreviated Journal Iscram 2019  
  Volume Issue Pages  
  Keywords Voluntary emergency response, ICT, smartphone application, end users, co-production.  
  Abstract Emergency response organisations struggle with resource constraints and thereby faces challenges in providing

high-quality public services. Utilising voluntary first responders is one way to address these challenges. There

are different types of volunteers who can help at an emergency site, e.g. citizen volunteers or voluntary

professionals from other occupations. To successfully engage with and utilise these resources, adequate

information and communication technology (ICT) is necessary. In this meta-study, combining and further

exploring two previous studies, the aim is to identify, analyse and evaluate suitable functions for smartphone

applications that can be used to dispatch and support volunteers. The results show that the functions can be

divided into essential ones that are necessary for the response to work at all, and others that might contribute to a

more effective response. The study also shows that the same functions can be used for different volunteer

groups.

  Title Sorting the good from the bad smartphone application to alert residents in case of disasters – Experiments in France Type Conference Article
  Year 2019 Publication Proceedings of the 16th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response And Management Abbreviated Journal Iscram 2019  
  Volume Issue Pages  
  Keywords Alert, Smartphone application, Major risks  
  Abstract The number of smartphone applications to alert and inform the population in a risk situation in France is too large

and these solutions are still unknow by the population. This study proposes an evaluation protocol based on various

indicators, which take into account the capacity of the applications to send a targeted alert, their attractiveness, the

ability of individuals to emit information and number of hazards considered. The results obtained on 50

applications deployed in France show that very few of them meet the objectives of the alert, in the sense defined

by civil security, because of a single-risk approach, a unique sense of communication, and the low acceptance of

these solutions by citizens.
