The Fourth edition of the ISCRAM conference is hosted by DECIS Lab and will be held in Delft, the Netherlands, from Sunday the 13th of May to Wednesday the 16th of May, 2007. On Sunday the traditional program for PhD students will be complemented by Tutorials and sessions of Special Interest Groups. The main 3-day conference will be held from Monday to Wednesday featuring special sessions associated with the general 2007 conference theme: ìIntelligent Systems for crisis managementî.

Call for Special Sessions:

As the previous editions of the ISCRAM conference have shown, the active participation of many ISCRAM Community members is a key factor in achieving a great conference program. We therefore are happy to invite proposals for special sessions at ISCRAM2007.

For this year, we invite three types of special session proposals:

  • Proposals for Academic sessions: these are sessions in which researchers from academia or research labs present their research or research-in-progress papers. These sessions will require prospective presenters to submit a regular research (or research in progress) paper which will be reviewed according to the usual academic standards.
  • Proposals for Practitioner sessions: these are sessions for practitioners to present their practice or experiences in information systems development, use or needs. These sessions will require prospective presenters to submit a powerpoint presentation which will be reviewed according to standards of relevance and contents.
  • Proposals for Demonstration and Simulation sessions: these are sessions in which non commercial demonstrations of information systems may be presented. Simulation (games) are also welcome. These sessions will require prospective contributors to submit a description of the demonstration or simulation they intend to present at the conference. These will be reviewed according to standards of relevance to the general theme of the conference.

The description for a special session should be written in the form of a call for papers/presentations/demos for the specific special session itself. Please note that you will be invited to chair the session if it is accepted. This includes organizing the review process, for which further instructions will be given. We will make use of the accepted sessions to structure the Call for Papers and Presentations that will be sent out on October 1st 2006.

Please send your proposals for sessions not later than Sunday, September 18, 2006 to the following email address: You will be notified of acceptance of your proposal by September 22 2006.

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions regarding the special sessions - we are looking forward to receiving your proposals!
