          Abstract

          My dissertation work focuses on the motivation for adopting emergency response technology in community settings. The main purpose of my study is to understand various factors that affect community members’ motivation and ability to participate in ICT-enabled emergency response. The key questions my research intends to answer are: What motivates community members to adopt and use emergency response technologies? What prevents them from using such technologies? What can be done to lower the cognitive, social, and technical barriers of adopting emergency response systems? Answers to these questions not only will inform the system design and assist practitioners in deploying and promoting response systems, but will also provide useful insights to researchers interested in how technologies can facilitate communication and cooperation among community members, especially in response to high-stress, high-stakes situations.
