The purpose of ISCRAM Asia Pacific 2018 is to exchange research into and experiences of information systems use in emergency management, particularly focussed around applications of information systems in the context of the four priorities of the Sendai Framework (2015-2030) for disaster risk reduction, namely: (1) understanding disaster risk; (2) strengthening disaster risk governance to manage disaster risk; (3) investing in disaster reduction for resilience; and (4) enhancing disaster preparedness for effective response and to “build back better” in recovery, rehabilitation and reconstruction. Target audience: emergency management practitioners, academics and researchers from the government, NGOs, and industry, particularly from around the Pacific, but encompassing global participation from New Zealand, Australia, Oceania, Asia, North and South America, and Europe.
