Experiences from Field Research on the Ebola Situation in Liberia
On February 25, you are most welcome to join us for the second URBSEC seminar in the spring seminar series.
Jonas Landgren, Assistant Professor at the Department of Applied IT, University of Gothenburg and Chalmers University of Technology, will give a talk based on his observations during a recent trip to Liberia. Jonas is co-founder of the research group Crisis Response Lab. His research interests concern the use and design of information technology and services for crisis and emergency response. His key focus is on how ICT can support sense-making-processes in the kind of time-critical, boundary-spanning and distributed situations and events that crises and emergencies always are.
