2nd International Workshop on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management in China
August 26-27, Harbin Engineering University, China
The ISCRAM-CHINA 2007 Workshop was a wonderful two-day event with renowned keynote speakers and about 150 Chinese and international participants. Special guest was Walter Amman, chairman of the International Disaster Reduction Conference, which was held in Harbin prior to the ISCRAM-CHINA Workshop. We thank prof. Amman for recognizing our workshop as a post-IDRC Conference workshop.
In addition to three renowned Chinese researchers, international keynote speakers on the Opening day were Eric Rasmussen (INsTEDD), Guy Weets (European Commission), Thomas Grain (WHO), Murray Jennex (San Diego State University) and Chamindra de Silva (Lanka Software Foundation).
