Lets be honest, few of us knew that 2010 would be such an exciting year with snow-chaos in Sweden, volcano-ash paralysis in Europe and several devastating disasters around the world.
New submission deadlines:
NOW 5th January! (extended due to requests)
Deadline for submission of full research papers,
work in progress and practitioner papers.
ISCRAM2011 Call for Papers is out – Lisbon, Portugal, May 8-11 2011. Tracks on early warning systems, social media, GIS, standards, humanitarian challenges, and more. More information on http://iscram2011.lnec.pt/ . Do not forget to also visit the ISCRAM.org website for details on the ISCRAM association and access to proceedings from previous ISCRAM-conference.
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.
In the last few years, our research team has been working with a small project on bringing live video broadcasting to the crisis and emergency response community. Our design work and extensive evaluation activities has now resulted in a product that no longer is just a good research app, but an application that we can offer to any organization across the world.
Keep in mind the Research-in-progress deadline for the next years ISCRAM2010.
