ISCRAM2016 - Call for Papers

13th Annual Conference for Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

May 22- 25 2016 


Important Dates

Long papers, panels, workshops: Friday, November 20th, 2015

Short papers, posters, demonstrations, doctoral consortium: Friday, January 29th, 2016

(IMPORTANT: These are hard deadlines that will not be extended)


ISCRAM2016 invites two categories of papers:

  • Long papers with a target acceptance rate of 35 % presenting completed work including a description of methods, results and validation (4,000-6,000 words)
  • Short papers presenting work in earlier stages, outlining concepts and discussing first results (2,000-3,500 words)

You are also invited to choose the review process:

  • Research papers will be reviewed according to scientific standards
  • Insight Papers are reviewed with respect to practical relevance and applicability

For each type of paper, submissions are welcome from academics, researchers, practitioners, technical or other experts, policy makers, or other professionals in the emergency management domain. The ISCRAM2016 proceedings will clearly identify the type of submission and reviewing process chosen.


ISCRAM2016 also welcomes workshops, panels (deadline: Nov 20th), posters, demonstrations, and the doctoral consortium (deadline: Jan 29th). Additional calls for these opportunities will be published on the main ISCRAM2016 website.


1. Authors must submit papers electronically through the conference system.

2. All papers must use the ISCRAM paper template and follow the ISCRAM house style. The template is available on the Conference homepage.


3. Papers may be submitted to either a Track or the Emergent Theme Open Track. Read through the calls of the individual tracks and select the track that is closest to the topic of your paper. If none match closely enough, submit to the Emergent Theme Track and your paper will be grouped by keyword with relevant reviewers.
