7th International Conference on
Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management
Defining Crisis Management 3.0
May 2-5, 2010
Crowne Plaza Hotel
Seattle Washington USA
The Call for Papers for ISCRAM2010 is out now and available for download here (PDF file, 108K)
We have decided upon the theme Defining Crisis Management 3.0. Our aim is to look forward at the conference and consider how our rapidly changing technologies may change the way that we respond to crises in our ever more interconnected world.
As always the conference will be multidisciplinary drawing together perspectives from across all socio-technological domains. Human behaviours are as important to us as the technologies that enable us to share information and situation assessments quickly and in increasing volumes.
The conference will involve the following standing tracks:
- Humanitarian Actions and Operations
- Collaboration and Social Networking
- Human-Computer Interaction including GIS Interfaces
- Intelligent systems
- Technologies, Tools and Demos
- Standardization and Ontologies
- Planning, Foresight, and/or Risk Analysis
- Research Methods
- Open Track
In addition there will be a special track organised by the University of Washington Conference on Safety and Security Education & Research (SASER):
- Safety and Security Education (SASER)
Rough Schedule of Important Dates
Although this is our 7th ISCRAM, the ISCRAM association is young; its first elected Board barely formed. Thus, while we have some well advanced ideas of what ISCRAM2010 will look like, we hope to involve you, the attendees, in planning the event. The dates below are still rough, but they should serve to set expectations. And be warned — key dates for submission will be advanced over those in previous years.
- Early July 2009: Call for special sessions, events, workshops, tutorials issued.
- End July 2009: Proposals for special events due (special sessions, special events, workshops, tutorials)
