Call For Papers

The annual ISCRAM conference is held each May and it provides the opportunity for researchers and practitioners from across the world to meet and share their expertise in the design, development, and implementation of information systems that are focused on improving the management of crises and disaster situations. Continuing this tradition, ISCRAM 2020, the 17th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management, will be held on the beautiful campus of Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia (USA) from May 24th to 27th, 2020.

The theme of ISCRAM 2020 is "Bringing Disaster Resilience into Focus."

The 2020 ISCRAM conference invites three types of paper submissions:

* CoRe - Completed Research (from 4000 to 8000 words).
* WiP - Work In Progress (from 3000 to 6000 words).
* Practitioner (from 500 to 3000 words).

CoRe papers are longer in length and describe completed research studies. WiP papers are shorter and meant to describe smaller, more focused research findings or research that is still in progress. Both of these paper types undergo a rigorous peer-review process and will be archived in the ISCRAM digital library.

While practitioners are also invited to submit a CoRe or WiP paper, we recognize that an academic review process is often not appropriate for practitioner contributions. These authors may instead submit a 500-3,000 word Practitioner paper — a format new to the conference this year. We particularly encourage submissions describing real-world experiences and case studies of interest to the ISCRAM conference. Practitioner submissions will be reviewed according to relevance and ability to contribute to discussions rather than by standard academic criteria. Accepted Practitioner submissions will also be included as extended abstracts in the conference proceedings.

All articles must be submitted to one of the tracks below. Once submitted, articles will be distributed for evaluation among the pool of reviewers according to their domain of expertise and the topics addressed by the paper. Accepted papers will be organized in sessions at the conference that will be distributed among the tracks.

Papers related to the conference theme, "Bringing resilience into focus", are particularly welcome.
