ISCRAM 2013: Technologies for Holistic Crisis Management

  1. 1. Welcome to the 10th ISCRAM
  2. 2. Technologies for Holistic Crisis Management
  3. 3.  complex infrastructures  dependence on technologies Vulnerability of society and economy  cascading effects and feedback loops  complexity and uncertainty Technologies for Holistic Crisis Management Interdisciplinary development and design of information systems Integrated approaches that combine:  organizational,  behavioural,  technical,  economic and  environmental aspects  better crisis response, planning and preparedness, mitigation and training
  4. 4. Modeling and assessing the consequences of disasters considering the complex interrelations between the victims, actors, organizations and critical infrastructure systems Enhancing the resilience of societies, organizations and critical infrastructures Early warning systems and facilitating the communication of risk Information systems that facilitate coordination and communication between and within organizations Decision support systems that are tailored to the specific needs and requirements of the end users Closing the gap between research and practice Technologies for Holistic Crisis Management
