International Community on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management (ISCRAM)
ISCRAM2012: The 9th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management.  22-25 April 2012 Vancouver, Canada.

Each year, ISCRAM brings together top researchers and practitioners working in the area of information systems and crisis management. In 2012, it will be held in the vibrant city of Vancouver, Canada. The conference provides an excellent opportunity to exchange information and knowledge on new research and best practices with a diverse group of colleagues.

Second Call for Practitioner Reports, Work-in-Progress Papers, Posters & Special Sessions Submissions
Deadline January 15th, 2012

Practitioner Report Papers
In order to incorporate a variety of perspectives in crisis research, ISCRAM encourages the participation of crisis response professionals through brief practitioner reports.  Ongoing dialog between the crisis response community and academics working in this field has yielded important collaborative efforts that ensure research is grounded in the tasks and priorities of disaster management professionals, while also encouraging the adoption of laboratory innovations into field applications.  Practitioner reports are brief (5 pages or less) and are lightly reviewed for clarity.

Work-in-Progress Papers
Work-in-Progress papers are typically brief reports of academic work that is not yet completed.  This format provides an important avenue for researchers to get feedback from colleagues during the planning stages of a research effort.  Work-in-Progress papers are also limited to 5 pages (about 2,500 words) and are lightly reviewed.

Poster submissions are accepted for all track and special session topics.  Participants in the PhD/Doctoral Student Colloquium are also required to submit a poster.

Special Session Submissions
ISCRAM2012 organizers are pleased to announce four Special Sessions this year, which focus on integrating different sub-disciplines within the ISCRAM community.  Because these sessions formed later than the tracks, Special Sessions will accept any format (including full papers) until January 15th, 2012.
