Submit papers to ISCRAM 2020

FOI organizes a session at the 17th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management (ISCRAM) with the topic Enhancing resilient response in inter-organizational contexts: Learning from experience.

The ability to learn from crises and exercises is vital in order to strengthen the capability of resilient response to disasters and emergencies. Large full-scale exercises are commonly used as a means to facilitate inter-organizational learning. These exercises are mainly evaluated and de-briefed in immediate connection to the exercise, with little focus on further analysis of gained experiences. Hence, there is a need to improve knowledge of how to make use of lessons learned more efficiently to enable resilient inter-organizational response.

The track encourages submissions about systems and methods, and studies on how to systematically support learning in inter-organizational contexts. This includes replication of earlier studies, case studies, experimental studies, qualitative studies and methodological contributions that can be useful for evaluating and understanding inter- and cross-organizational learning from crises and exercises/training. The focus is on how to better understand learning in an inter-organizational crisis response context.
