The 13th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

May 22-25, 2016

Resilience by all means

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.
