Call for Workshops

Workshops offer an informal environment for attendees with common interests and diverse perspectives to engage in rich discussions around works in progress or new areas of research and on challenges and solutions driven by practitioners and end-users. 

We invite submissions on workshops focusing on the technologies, procedures, approaches, methods and tools that can be employed to improve crisis response and management in an increasingly complex and dynamic world. Workshop attendants will exchange ideas and experience, establish common ground in research areas or practical problems, and hopefully identify new opportunities for collaboration and new directions for future activities. 

Creative and critical reflections are welcome. 

The Workshop chair is expected to: 

  • Define areas of particular interest for ISCRAM and in relation to the Conference Theme
  • Communicate with prospective authors
  • Solicit and read papers submissions
  • Recruit reviewers for papers submissions
  • Manage the review process for the workshop, enforcing deadlines and selection of papers
  • Final planning of workshops with agenda and printing of papers for attendees
  • Moderate the workshop at the ISCRAM 2016 conference

ISCRAM 2016 will offer logistic support for the workshops: registration, catering, room allocation and audio/visual will be arranged by the conference organizers. 

We look forward to receiving your workshop proposal! 

Deadline: 20 November 2015
