Defining Crisis Management 3.0
7th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management
May 2-5, 2010
Crowne Plaza Hotel
Seattle Washington USA


Submission of work-in-progress, discussions, and practitioner papers remain open until January 18th 2010, but submission of full research papers is now closed.

ISCRAM is aware that it serves a wide community of different disciplines spanning both academic and practitioner interests so our conferences accept a wide range of types of submission. When submission of full research papers closed at the end of November, over 80 papers had been submitted and these are now going through full double-blind, academic peer review. ISCRAM conferences are much more than presentations of research results. They are full of vibrant discussion and networking opportunities.

ISCRAM2010 is still soliciting three types of submission:

1. Work in progress and discussion papers.
2. Practitioner reports and discussions which raise issues, examples and case studies, examples of best practices, improvements, and significant insights or examples.
3. Demonstrations.

We welcome any such submissions in any of our tracks and sessions.

The full call for papers is available here .
