International Conference on Information Cystems for Crisis Response and 
10th - 13th of May, Gothenburg, Sweden


We would hereby like to invite you to the ISCRAM 2009 
<> hands-on demo session.
Great ideas usually result from a series of seemingly great ideas 
failing their first encounters with reality. 
This is particularly true of complex ideas, such as information systems, 
and doubly true of complex
realities, such as crisis response and management.

In order to help the ISCRAM community to develop great ideas, and 
facilitate the discussion of successes
and failures encountered in realizing lesser ideas, the ISCRAM 2009 
program will include a 
Hands-On Demos Session on May 12th. The aim of this Demo Session is to 
support dialogue between
academia, industry and crisis management practitioners concerning 
innovative system solutions with
potential to be realized as products.  

We would greatly appreciate your proposals for systems to be included in 
the session. These could be 
prototypes developed for research, commercial, open-source, or 
grass-roots uses, or field-developed 
applications. They need not be fully tested, but should demonstrate 
novel insights or ideas and have the
potential to enrich the work of the ISCRAM community. Demo presenters 
should be able and permitted to
talk about the underlying ideas and the insides of the technology.

A demo proposal should include the following:

    A description of the demo/prototype/application/system that will be 
presented and its application areas.
    A brief outline of the novel ideas and the insides of the 
technology that has led to the demo.
    Brief presentation of the organization/actors behind the demo.
    Special demo needs (the conference will provide a table, power 
outlets and wireless internet access).

All demo proposals will be peer-reviewed and only high quality demo 
contributions will be accepted.  
Submit your demo proposal via 

Deadline for Demo proposals is March 1st and notification to accepted 
demos will be no later than March 15th.
However, note that the demo space is limited and we urge you to submit 
your proposals as soon as possible.
We look forward to seeing you at ISCRAM,

Dennis and Sofie
