ISCRAM is a learned society for people working in the field of
Information Systems for Crisis Response And Management.

The ISCRAM Association’s primary mission is to foster a community dedicated to promoting research and development, exchange of knowledge and deployment of information systems for crisis management, including the social, technical and practical aspects of all information and communication systems used or to be used in all phases of management of emergencies, disasters and crises.


ISCRAM researchers are attending the European Emergency Number Association (EENA) annual conference in Riga, Latvia (6-8 October 2021) to present their work at a new Research Corner event planned by ISCRAM and EENA. The session will be chaired by Rob Grace and include the following presenters: Eva Petitdemange, Erik Borglund, Lennart Landsberg, and Hassan Moafa. More information can be found at:

ISCRAM Asia Pacific 2021, originally scheduled for November 2021, has been postponed to November 2022. The current impact of COVID-19 and the associated uncertainty of international travel restrictions to Australia in the near future has made it impractical and unfeasible to plan for and hold the conference on the original dates. The organising committee regret having to reschedule the conference, but are delighted to welcome the international community to Melbourne in 2022. We will build upon the progress we had already made on the general programme and anticipate that this will be a great event. More information can be found at:

ISCRAM 2021 Conference Proceedings are now published and fully available in the ISCRAM Digital Library!

Ongoing Projects

In addition, you will soon have […]
