3rd International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response 
and Management in Mediterranean Countries

Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, Spain
October, 26-28, 2016

Paper Submission deadline: May 29th, 2016

The Third International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis 
Response and Management in Mediterranean Countries (ISCRAM-med 2016), is 
an ISCRAM event organized in Mediterranean countries, alternating 
between the north and the south of the Mediterranean Sea. The previous 
ISCRAM-med conferences were successfully held in Toulouse, France 
(October, 15-17, 2014) and in Tunis, Tunisia (October, 28-30, 2015). The 
next ISCRAM-med 2016 will be held in Madrid (Leganés), Spain (October, 
26-28, 2016).

The ISCRAM-med Conference aims to provide an outstanding opportunity and 
an international forum for local and international researchers, 
practitioners and policy makers to address and discuss new trends and 
challenges in the area of Information Systems and Technologies for 
Crisis Response and Management. Attendees are invited to present and 
discuss their experiences, their recent research results, best 
practices, case studies, and also tool demonstrations related to social, 
technical and practical aspects of all information and communication 
systems used or to be used in all phases of management of emergencies, 
disasters and crises.

A special focus on Mediterranean related experiences will be 
appreciated. Many crises have occurred in recent years around the 
Mediterranean Sea. Also, the shared history between the Mediterranean 
countries and common geo-political issues led to solidarity among people 
and cross-country interventions. This observation proves the importance 
of considering some of these crises in this region at a Mediterranean 
level rather than as isolated phenomena. It becomes appropriate now to 
exchange and share information and knowledge about the course and 
management of these crises and also to get the point of view of 
stakeholders, practitioners and policy makers.

ISCRAM-med 2016 will include a high quality scientific program, invited 
speakers, posters and demonstration’s sessions.

As with the previous ISCRAM-med, accepted papers will be published in 
the Springer series “Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing” 
(LNBIP).Publication in the proceedings is subject to the registration of 
at least one author of the paper.

Important Dates for authors:

Abstract deadline (recommended): May 22th, 2016
Full and short papers and demos submission deadline: May 29th, 2016
Authors’ notification: July 1st, 2016
Camera-ready paper: July 10th, 2016
