The APSEC workshop aims to discuss the most recent trends and technological considerations for future public safety and emergency response communications. The broad areas of interest include rapidly deployable network architectures, wireless technologies, cognitive and self-organizing communications, software-defined radio, device-to-device communications, interoperability considerations, spectrum availability and management, standardization and regulatory aspects. The workshop will bring together researchers, industry fora and relevant user community to share the future research perspectives of public safety and emergency communications and is a timely initiative given the growing importance and outreach for disaster management communication techniques and integrated solutions for public safety communications. Besides the technical insights, the workshop will encourage the participants to discuss among each other. We are seeking papers for oral presentations which present mature results and short papers that can be selected as poster presentation and possibly accompanied with demonstrations or testbeds.
