19th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management
Tarbes, France
May 22- May 25, 2022

ISCRAM is a forum where researchers and practitioners from all around the world meet every year to share experiences and raise challenges in all the aspects related to the design, development, and use of information systems to improve the management of crisis and disaster situations. The 19th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management is co-organized by the National School of Engineers of Tarbes and ISCRAM Organisation and it will be held in Tarbes, France on 22-25 May, 2022.

The main thematic of ISCRAM 2022 is:

“The future vision of large-scale CRISIS management in a post COVID world”

The COVID-19 pandemic and its negative economic and social impact has cruelly highlighted the limitations of traditional crisis management mechanisms and practices facing this type of crisis within a human society that is evolving faster than its risk and security management practices. A lot of lessons are learnt, and feedback reports pointed out the lack of suitable plans, proactivity, training, resources, computerized tools, etc. ISCRAM 2022 will focus on shaping the future of large-scale CRISIS Management by studding issues, feedbacks and potential solutions addressing more proactivity, accurate prediction, supply chain management, planning, social aspects, communication, cross countries collaboration, etc.

ISCRAM 2022 focus will not be limited to pandemics crisis, but it will promote research and development, exchange of knowledge and deployment of information systems for crisis management, including the social, technical and practical aspects of all information and communication systems used or to be used in all phases of management of different emergencies, disasters and crises.

ISCRAM 2022 is an opportunity for worldwide stakeholders to think together on new processes and information systems able to organize knowledge, make sense of it, increase decision-making and control, involve citizens, and extract value from data for the new kind of low-expected and high-impacting large-scale crisis. The aim is to promote and facilitate cooperation among all stakeholders involved in this domain, including researchers, practitioners and professionals, technical experts and other experts and policy makers.

Topics of interest to ISCRAM 2022 include, but are not limited to: crisis informatics, geographic information systems (GIS), operational planning, human-computer interaction, humanitarian information management, situation awareness, visual analytics, social media, serious games and more.
