With just a few weeks after the closing of this years successful ISCRAM-conference, it is already time to start preparing for the ISCRAM2011 conference. The 8th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management – ISCRAM 2011, will be held in Lisbon, Portugal, May 8-11, 2011. Read more at the ISCRAM2011 website.
This means that researches and professionals in the area in crisis and emergency response already at this early point in time book these dates. Lets join forces and suggest interesting discussion panels, workshops or exciting demos that really shows how we as a community can make a difference and improve international, national, regional and local response work. Maybe it is time for us to be more critical to the super-fast technological developments that promise much benefits but sadly too often delivers to little.
I am looking forward to a great conference, in a nice city with a crowd of inspiring professionals and researchers. For the ISCRAM2011 conference, I do expect several teams from Sweden including, MSB, FOI, CrisMart, LiU as well as the Crisis Response Lab. It would be excellent if the MSB team could consist of people that work on WIS and LUPP as well as people that work on the methodological aspects of emergency and crisis response.
See you all in Lisbon May 8-11 2011.
