There is much discussion on using knowledge in crisis response decision support.  This session defines crisis knowledge as experience from previous responses to crisis with subsequent analysis as to the effectiveness and appropriateness of those responses.  This session will solicit papers that explore the use of Knowledge Management techniques to manage this knowledge and bring it to bear during crisis response to aid decision makers in determining appropriate courses of action.  Some expected topics include incorporating KM into crisis response DSS, determining when knowledge is appropriate for a situation, visualizing knowledge, storage of knowledge for search and retrieval, and cases describing experience in incorporating KM into crisis response.  Quality papers from this session(s) would be fast tracked for publication in the International Journal of Knowledge Management.

ISCRAM2006, the Third International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management, will take place in Newark, New Jersey, USA, at the New Jersey Institute of Technology from May 14-17 2006.
