This workshop will bring together researchers interested in problems of information processing to meet the growing challenges in emergency situations. Our aim is to foster a research conversation among computer scientists, social scientists, and other interested participants to discuss issues and challenges relating to emergency understanding, including theoretical, methodological, ethical, and political questions regarding the study of large-scale social information data.
