Workshops and Tutorials: Interactive workshops and tutorials are offered on Sunday, before the main conference begins on Monday. These workshops and tutorials provide a more focused environment in which to interact with other academics and practitioners on a specific topic.
Doctoral Symposium: The annual ISCRAM Doctoral Symposium provides doctoral students with the opportunity to meet with faculty, practitioners, and other doctoral students from a variety of disciplines who are also working in areas related to crisis and disaster response and management. Participants will discuss a wide range of topics associated with professional development and with teaching and research activities and expectations in this domain.
MONDAY TO THURSDAY
Keynote Talks: Each annual ISCRAM conference invites distinguished keynote speakers, drawn from both academia and the practitioner community, who have made significant contributions to the crisis and disaster community in either research or practice. Keynote talks are presented each morning during the main conference.
Parallel Sessions: Completed research, work-in-progress, and practitioner paper submissions are reviewed by a Program Committee that represents the best experts in the domain. From the accepted submissions, which are each associated with at least one of 16 different paper tracks, parallel sessions are then assembled to allow attendees to share and discuss cutting-edge research and applications in the field of crisis and disaster management.
Demonstrations: The annual ISCRAM conference provides attendees with the opportunity to attend demonstrations of different crisis-related technologies at various times during the conference.
Poster Session: A conference-wide poster session is typically scheduled for an afternoon or evening time block during the conference.
