A round table on the role of Information and Communication Technology in disaster recovery.


Native hackers from the telematic association Metro Olografix born in Abruzzo (Italy) will intervene to give us an overview of what happened and open a discussion on the role of communication infrastructures in zones hit by disasters.

We know that many of the hackers at the festival have good experience of strategic development in extreme conditions and disaster zones. We want to draft a document containing a practical analysis of state-of-the-art technologies and strategies that can be deployed to re-consolidate an efficient ICT infrastructure in Abruzzo.

We look for technologies and practices to rapidly setup an alternative communication infrastructure during and after a disaster, as well for guidelines on how to optimise resource allocation and increase transparence and participatory attitudes in the blurry phase of reconstruction that often follows such disasters.
