ISCRAMx 2019: The 1st IEEE International Workshop on Information Systems for Crisis Response & Management at COMPSAC

Call for Papers

This workshop will focus on data driven approaches to community disaster resilience, response and recovery.

ISCRAMx seeks to foster a community dedicated to promoting research and development, exchange of knowledge, and deployment fo information systems for crisis management, including the social, technical and practical aspects of all information and communication systems used or to be used in all phases of management of emergencies, disasters, and crises.

ISCRAM is an international association that supports a World conference alternating between Europe and the Americas every other year, as well as conference offerings in Asia, the Mediterranean, and other areas of the world.  The ISCRAM association focuses on improving response to, and recovery from, major disasters and crisis events using information systems tools, computer science, and engineering solutions.  ISCRAM is a transdisciplinary community including both researchers and emergency management professionals and places an emphasis on technologies that can directly improve real-world outcomes while also advancing scientific understanding.

Researchers and practitioners all over the world, from both academia and industry, working in the areas of process engineering, service-oriented computing and security, cloud security are invited to discuss state of the art solutions, novel issues, recent developments, applications, methodologies, techniques, experience reports, and tools for the development and use of secure service oriented systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Analytical modeling and simulation
  • Command and control studies
  • Ethical, legal, and social issues (ELSI)
  • Logistics and supply chain management in crisis response
  • Intelligent and semantic web systems
  • Geospatial technologies and Geographic Information Science for crisis management (GIS)
  • Planning, foresight and risk analysis
  • Social media in crises and conflicts
  • Universal design of ICT in emergency management
  • Knowledge, semantics and AI for RISK and CRISIS management
  • Community engagement & healthcare systems
  • Tools demonstrations
  • Privacy risk management in critical infrastructures
  • Protecting critical infrastructures in crisis situations
