Emergency, crisis and disaster management

Guest editor:
Edward P. Borodzicz
University of Southampton

Outline abstracts are invited for a special issue of S&G on any area of "Emergency, crisis and disaster management".

The use of simulations and games to improve the human and organisational response to dangerous events has increased in the last decade. Initially, this was focused on decision-maker training among the emergency services, typically, as part of staff development programmes. However, the use of simulations to improve corporate response to high-risk situations in a variety of applied contexts has also increased dramatically.
