The aim of ISCRAM-med is to bring together researchers and practitioners working in the area of Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management and especially on Mediterranean crisis.
Many crises have occurred in recent years around the Mediterranean Sea. For instance, we can mention political crisis such as Arabic Spring (Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, ...), economic crisis in Spain and Greece, earthquake in Italy, fires in France and Spain, riots in French suburbs or even the explosion of chemical plant AZF in Toulouse. Some of them even had a domino effect on others.
Also, the shared history between the Mediterranean countries and common geo-political issues led to solidarity among peoples and cross-country military interventions. This observation demonstrates the importance of considering some of these crisis in this region at a Mediterranean level rather than as isolated phenomena.
If researchers working on crisis that occurred in these countries have made work, often limited to a country or to a class of crisis, it becomes appropriate now to exchange and share information and knowledge about the course and management of these crisis and also to have the point of view of stakeholders, practitioners and policy makers.

All paper submissions must make a new and significant contribution to the body of knowledge on information systems for emergency management, support their contribution with valid arguments, and be clearly structured and well written. ISCRAM2014 invites two categories of papers:
- Research 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.
- 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.
All papers (up to 12 pages, LNCS format) should be written in English and submitted electronically in PDF format through the conference system Every submitted paper will be evaluated by at least three members of the program committee. An ISBN number for the proceedings will be available and the papers available as arxiv proceedings and indexed by DBLP.
