Categories: ISCRAM2006 Conference


Chair: Art Botterell,

Papers are invited that deal with any aspect of the design, development, deployment, operation, or evaluation of information systems for public warning, emergency public information and public collaborative media in emergencies.  Authors should focus on ìcitizen situational awareness,î input and approval of warning messages, coordination of multiple warning systems, warning to non-English speaking populations and to people with sensory disabilities, follow-on emergency public information, and participatory media.  We are particularly interested in new and challenging approaches to support for alerting, informing, and reassuring the public, and for allowing the public to assist in meeting their own information needs.

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.
