We have been carefully monitoring the Covid-19 outbreak over the last few weeks, and have had a number of meetings with the ISCRAM Board to try to determine the best response to the evolving situation and its potential impacts on the ISCRAM 2020 conference. As a result of these discussions, we have come to the conclusion that the most appropriate decision, under the current circumstances, is to postpone ISCRAM 2020 for a year, until May 2021.
The conference will be held in the same venue next year, and it will be presented as a joint conference, along with ISCRAM 2021. We are pleased to be able to provide the opportunity for everyone who submitted their work to ISCRAM 2020 to come visit the beautiful campus of Virginia Tech next year, and we are embracing the situation as a chance to show how strong, resilient, and united our community is.
Thank you to everyone for your support and understanding. We truly believe that this is the best solution given our current circumstances, and we sincerely hope that you will be able to join us for ISCRAM 2021 at Virginia Tech next year.

Welcome to the ISCRAM 2020 Conference Website!
The annual ISCRAM conference is held each May and it provides the opportunity for researchers and practitioners from across the world to meet and share their expertise in the design, development, and implementation of information systems that are focused on improving the management of crises and disaster situations.
Continuing this tradition, ISCRAM 2020, the 17th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management, will be held on the beautiful campus of Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia (USA) from May 24th to 27th, 2020.
