Resilience has become a popular topic, particularly when it refers to safety. Resilience, however, has several meanings and approaches (Woods, D., “Four Concepts for resilience and the Implications for the Future of Resilience Engineering”, Reliability Engineering and System Safety).
This edition will highlight the exploration of the various facets of resilience when applied to Crisis and Emergency Management. The purpose of ISCRAM 2016 is to stimulate discussions that enable the design of resilient systems in the domain of crisis management.
The Keynote speakers will provide insights on current practices and future trends in crisis and disaster management. The three keynotes will be released soon!
The ISCRAM2016 workshops provide a means to in depth discuss emerging topics. Individuals or groups interested in organizing a workshop should contact the Workshop Co-Chairs.
Martina Comes is organising a special issue on “Technology Innovation and Big Data in Humanitarian Operations” for the Journal of Humanitarian Logistics and Supply Chain Management.
Deadline: June 1st, 2016
It may be a suitable outlet for an extended version of you ISCRAM contribution!
Papers on humanitarian operations based on theoretical concepts, models and simulations, case studies and empirical work, insights from practice and critical reflections on the use of technology are welcome. Submissions of real-world case studies that emphasise implications for humanitarian practice are strongly encouraged. We also invite interdisciplinary contributions bringing together insights from technology and management.
