The 2018 International Association for Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management (ISCRAM) World Conference Organizing Committee is pleased to announce that the 2018 ISCRAM World Conference being held May 20-23, 2018 in Rochester, NY, USA (https://iscram2018.rit.edu) has been approved for In-Cooperation with ACM SIGCAS.
ISCRAM is a leading international learned society for people working in the field of Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management. The ACM (Association for Computing Machinery - https://www.acm.org/) is a non-profit organization that is the world's largest scientific and educational computing society. SIGCAS is the ACM Special Interest Group on Computers and Society. The In-Cooperation agreement between ACM SIGCAS and ISCRAM is designed to encourage collaboration and cooperation between the ISCRAM and ACM SIGCAS communities through publicity and ISCRAM conference participation and paper contribution by ACM SIGCAS and other ACM SIGs.
Some additional points to communicate about this exciting new aspect of the ISCRAM World Conference:
- (1) The ISCRAM World Conference remains a conference run by the ISCRAM society – ACM In-Cooperation does not makes ISCRAM an ACM-sponsored conference;
- (2) Proceedings of the 2018 ISCRAM World Conference will remain freely and openly available via the ISCRAM digital library (http://idl.iscram.org/). Additionally, the ISCRAM paper template will not be changed to the ACM template;
- (3) As per the agreement to have ACM In-Cooperation status, a current ACM member can register to the 2018 ISCRAM World Conference with the ISCRAM member rate.
In the next few months, the ISCRAM board will be working out details on longer-term arrangements for ACM members and ISCRAM membership rates.
