Description & Coverage
Description:

As our society becomes more complicated, so do the unfortunate events which occur. The importance of developing systems and applications for these crises is critical. The response and management of a crisis is paramount and thus requires innovative research to better understand how to improve our systems.

Crisis Response and Management and Emerging Information Systems: Critical Applications provides a comprehensive, cross disciplinary look at the advancing and understanding of organizational, technical, human, and cognitive issues associated with the use of information systems in responding and managing crises of all kinds. This book presents the issues that drive the technologies, processes, methodologies, techniques, and practices used to implement information systems in a variety of ways and in the multi-faceted modern environment that we find ourselves in today. The advancement of these critical applications will benefit from this publication as it provides valuable information for future crisis situations.

Coverage:

The many academic areas covered in this publication include, but are not limited to:

  • Collaborative and intelligent systems
  • Communication Technologies
  • Crisis planning, training, exercising, and gaming
  • Data fusion, representation, and visualization
  • Early warning systems
  • Emergency response systems
  • Globalization and development issues
  • Humanitarian operations
  • Information systems strategy
  • Knowledge management and systems
Reviews & Statements

This book proposes the use of knowledge management strategy incorporating security to assist in this analysis and specifically warns against just adopting social media for crisis response without first considering its impact on and risk to the organization and its members. The [...] chapters will support readers in determining these impacts and risks. It is my hope that readers will get sufficient knowledge and tools from these chapters to support their crisis response management researches and/or initiatives.

Expanded from their version in the first volume of the International Journal of Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management, 17 articles explore technical approaches to emergency response. Researchers in computer and information science, organizations, security, and other fields consider such topics as the past as the future of emergency preparedness and management, web-based group decision support for crisis management, multilingual crisis knowledge representation, supporting flexibility and improvisation in collaborative command and control, emergency messaging to the general public through public wireless networks, a unified localized emergency events scale, and initial requirements of a national crisis decision support system. This begins a projected annual series.
