Registrations are open for the inaugural international meeting of the Asia Pacific community for Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management (ISCRAM), in Te Papa, Wellington, New Zealand, on 5-7 November 2018.
The purpose of ISCRAM Asia Pacific 2018 is to exchange research into and experiences of information systems for emergency management, particularly focussed around applications in the context of the four priorities of the Sendai Framework (2015-2030) for Disaster Risk Reduction, namely:
Information management research and experience will be highlighted across the natural, social, built, and economic environments for disaster risks related to: Earthquakes; severe weather; flooding; wildfire; tsunami; colcanic eruption; lifeline failures; pandemics, bio-security, etc.
Attendees of ISCRAM Asia Pacific 2018 are anticipated to be academics, researchers, and emergency management practitioners, from governments, NGOs, and industry, particularly from around the Pacific, but encompassing global participation. Planning is based on 200 – 400 attendees.
The preliminary programme is being updated at the Official Conference Website Keynote speakers include:
Almost 100 papers and 12 workshop proposals were submitted by the June closing date. The pre-conference PhD Colloquium, at Massey University on the 4th Nov, has 19 PhD student applicants accepted from around the world. Poster papers are called for - before 1 September 2018. This is an ideal format for practitioners or researchers to describe their experience with or views on best practice in emergency information management, including communicating situational awareness, use of social media, and generating the common operating picture - across the 4R’s of risk reduction: Reduction, Readiness, Response, and Recovery/Regeneration.
