CAP, designated as ITU Recommendation X.1303, is recognized internationally as the key standard for societies to achieve all-hazards, all-media public alerting for emergencies. CAP Implementation Workshops provide a forum for implementers of CAP and associated organizations to discuss how best to expand adoption of the CAP standard and to share practices among users of the standard. There is no charge to participate and anyone interested in emergency alerting is welcome (managers, technical staff, media...), including governments, non-governmental and commercial organizations.

If you have CAP implementation experiences or insights to share, please let the Program Committee know that you want to give one of the presentations. You can contact the Program Committee by e-mail to the Chair: Eliot.J.Christian@gmail.com As usual, presentations will be limited to 20 minutes, plus 10 minutes for Q&A. Accepted presenters will be notified by 1 August 2022.

The 2022 CAP Implementation Workshop is co-sponsored by the International Association of Emergency Managers (IAEM), the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), the OASIS standards organization, and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO).
