Information systems for crisis response and management (ISCRAM) asia pacific 2022
The second Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management (ISCRAM) Asia Pacific regional conference will take place on 7-9 November 2022 at RMIT University in Melbourne and Online. This event follows the first ISCRAM Asia Pacific conference that was held in Wellington New Zealand in November 2018. Conference participants will be welcomed to Melbourne which is home to several research institutions focusing on disaster risk reduction and is one of the 100 Resilient Cities of the World.
The need to evolve appropriate information systems to support crisis management has been repeatedly demonstrated in the Asia Pacific after bushfires, flooding, cyclones, severe storms and now pandemic. Such events could be expected to increase in frequency and intensity due to climate change. Each of these events brings unique challenges and thereby the principles of emergency management are continuously being improved through ongoing critical review and by sharing experiences and research results. Supporting these activities is one of the primary aims of ISCRAM.
Technology-led research in information systems development has now become a key driver in emergency management and disaster risk reduction. Innovation in this space is now starting to lead to positive impacts in other allied areas such as remote sensing, modelling and analytics and artificial intelligence.
ISCRAM Asia Pacific 2022 will cater for practitioners, researchers and developers from government, NGOs, and industry, particularly from around the Pacific, but encompassing global participation from New Zealand, Oceania, Asia, North and South America and Europe.
The conference is calling for submissions for Workshops, Research Papers, Practitioner Abstracts & Posters under a number of timely and relevant tracks.
