We are currently discussing with a dozen of international journals (all of them are indexed in the Web of Science and have Impact Factors) to organize Special Issues on Information Systems for Crisis Management. We hope to be able to publish half a dozen of such Special Issues. These special issues may offer the Track Chairs the opportunity to be editors or co-editors of those special issues. Besides, these special issues may be a very good opportunity to submit articles based on the results presented in accepted CoRe articles.
The ISCRAM conference aims at exploring all dimensions of Information System domain to improve and contribute to Crisis and Disaster Management. The scope is by far incredibly wide, which makes one of the main attractive features of ISCRAM conference: “Information System” includes social, psychological, organizational, technological (and many others) aspects, while “Crisis and Disaster Management” refers to all kind of events that affects significantly human kind, from natural disasters to terrorist attacks via all types of accidents. Each and every article presented during ISCRAM conference must have one “Information System” component and one “Crisis and Disaster Management” component.
The theme of ISCRAM2017 is “Agility is coming”. There are several components in the concept of agility that are vital to crisis management:
