All paper submissions must make a new and significant contribution to the body of knowledge on information systems and technologies for emergency management, support their contribution with valid arguments, and be clearly structured and well written. ISCRAMMed2016 invites three categories of papers:
- Full papers presenting valid, original, relevant cutting edge research that will be reviewed to the highest academic standards. Reviewing will pay additional attention to the application of the related scientific literature and theory, to the use of an appropriate research methodology, and to technical, mathematical and statistical correctness (10-14 pages, LNCS format).
- Short papers introducing cutting edge research in progress and outstanding that do not have yet a comprehensive evaluation as full papers but still suppose a contribution in the domain of information systems and technologies for emergency management (6-7 pages, LNCS format).
- Demo papers presenting new developments in emergency management and policy making, discussing approaches, methods, tools, (best) practices and standards. These papers should focus on practical issues and concerns and raise challenges for future research, and will be reviewed to the highest practice-oriented standards (4 pages, LNCS format)
All papers should be written in English and submitted electronically in PDF format through the conference system
You can download the LNCS format
Every submitted paper will be evaluated by at least three members of the program committee. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, to appear in the Springer series “Lecture Notes in Business Information Processing” (LNBIP). Final publication in the proceedings is conditioned to the registration to the conference of at least one autor of the paper.
