ISCRAM Conference 2017


Location: Albi, Occitanie Pyrénées-Méditerranée, France

Topics of Interest

The theme of ISCRAM2017 is “Agility is coming”. There are several components in the concept of agility that are vital to crisis management:

  1. detection, i.e., the ability to diagnose the divergence between the actual and the expected situation,
  2. adaptation, i.e., the ability to define and implement a new strategy coherent with the diagnostics,
  3. reactivity, i.e., the ability to perform detection and adaptation fast enough to respond to the situation,
  4. effectiveness, i.e. the ability to ensure detection and adaptation in a pertinent and accurate way.

Moreover, agility is one of the key-features to improve crisis management and build a resilient society. We therefore encourage specifically submissions that reflect how information systems can contribute to more agile crisis and disaster response.

Any submission to the conference needs to be clearly positioned along each dimension of the following framework and use the according standards, methodologies and approaches. The scientific committee will select reviewers according to the positioning of the papers in the respective categories.
