Call For Papers

Second International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management in Mediterranean Countries

Conference Dates: October 28-30 2015
Tunis, Tunisia


The ISCRAM-med Conference aims to provide an outstanding opportunity and an international forum for local and international researchers, practitioners and policy makers to address and discuss new trends and challenges in the area of Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management. Attendees are invited to present and discuss their experiences, their recent research results, best practices, case studies, and also tool demonstrations related to 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. A special focus on Mediterranean related experiences will be appreciated. In fact, many crises have occurred in recent years around the Mediterranean Sea. Also, the shared history between the Mediterranean countries and common geo-political issues led to solidarity among people and cross-country interventions. This observation proves the importance of considering some of these crises in this region at a Mediterranean level rather than as isolated phenomena. It becomes appropriate now to exchange and share information and knowledge about the course and management of these crises and also to get the point of view of stakeholders, practitioners and policy makers.

Topics include but are not limited to:

· Information Systems Crisis and Disaster Management (CDM) and their Engineering
o Decision Support Systems
o Social Media
o Collaborative Systems
o Geographic Information Science and Technology (GIS&T) for Crisis Response and Management

o Planning, Foresight and Risk Analysis
o MultiAgent systems
o Visual Analytics for Crisis Management
o Serious Games for CDM
o Search & Rescue Robotics

· CDM Data, Information and knowledge Management
o Cooperative Information Gathering and Situation Awareness
o Conceptual Modelling and Ontologies
o Big Data
o Knowledge Discovery
o Social Computing
o Social Network Analysis

All paper submissions must make a new and significant contribution to the body of knowledge on information systems for emergency management, support their contribution with valid arguments, and be clearly structured and well written. ISCRAM-Med’2015 invites two categories of papers:

- Research papers presenting valid, original, relevant cutting edge research that will be reviewed to the highest academic standards. Reviewing will pay additional attention to the application of the related scientific literature and theory, to the use of an appropriate research methodology, and to technical, mathematical and statistical correctness.
- Demo papers presenting new developments in emergency management and policy making, discussing approaches, methods, tools, (best) practices and standards.
These papers should focus on practical issues and concerns and raise challenges for future research, and will be reviewed to the highest practice-oriented standards.

All papers (up to 12 pages LNCS style) should be written in English and submitted electronically in PDF format through the easychair conference system.
Every submitted paper will be evaluated by at least three members of the program committee.

As with the first ISCRAM-med, we are contacting Springer in order to get accepted papers published in the Springer series “Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing” (LNBIP).
