An emergency response simulation with the required functionalities (emergency plan representation, creation of scenarios of destruction, triggering alerts and dynamic coordination simulation) is a cost-effective means of emergency management and of personnel training.
Papers to be submitted must focus on emergency response modelling and computer simulation and personnel training. Case studies are welcome.  Topics to be addressed may include i) agent-based simulation and other knowledge-based methods; ii) theory of modelling and simulation; iii) synthetic environments; iv) collaborative work; v) decision analysis; and vi) game-based frameworks for emergency response simulation. 

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.
