Hosting ISCRAM 2015 Conference (Call for Interest)

The Board of the ISCRAM Association is preparing for the organisation of ISCRAM2015, the 12th international conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management. The Board wishes to invite people and organizations that are interested in organizing the event to reply to this call for interest.

The proposed conference venue for ISCRAM2015 should be in Europe, and the dates should be in the month of May.

ISCRAM has grown from an attendance of 72 people in 2004. Between 2005 and 2009 we had an average of 170, and for the last three years we have had an average of 200 participants. The conference itself is a three-day event (Monday to Wednesday), preceded by a day of doctoral colloquium and tutorials on the Sunday.
