Track 17 – Practitioner Track

Following the ISCRAM tradition and the conference vision, crisis management practitioners are invited to present their work in the practitioner track. Unlike other tracks, which require a CoRe- or WiP-paper for presentation, ISCRAM 2024 is adopting a novel approach informed by feedback from practitioner communities. We encourage practitioners to share their experiences, realities, and insights on current ISCRAM challenges and solutions through talks, without the need for paper submissions. This initiative aims to facilitate the sharing of pertinent ISCRAM topics and foster stronger collaboration between academics and practitioners.

The poster and demonstration-sessions will be co-chaired by Nicola Rupp & Bart van Leeuwen. If you have any questions, please refer to the central email address or to the corresponding chair.
