Call for Tracks: ISCRAM2015
May 24-27 2015, Kristiansand, Norway
Getting ready for the unexpected –
Information Systems for Crisis Management in a complex and uncertain world
Emergencies are characterised by their ‘un-ness’ - ‘… unexpected, unscheduled, unplanned, unprecedented and definitely unpleasant’ (Crichton 2003) – they are unexpected and unknowable in their specific unfolding. However good plans and scenarios may be, uncertainty is a defining feature in emergency events. Through this conference theme we invite Tracks and submissions focusing on the technologies, procedures, approaches, methods and tools that can be employed to improve crisis response in an increasingly complex and dynamic world. Creative and critical reflections are welcome.
