Call for PhD Student Applications
ISCRAM‘s 3rd International Summer School
June 18-26, 2008, the Netherlands
for Grassroots Emergency Preparedness and Response
Apply by: April 25, 2008
I will be participating in this program and highly recommend others apply as well. There will be a stimulating mix of scholars and practitioners from different disciplines who will present on the most recent and fascinating developments in our field. To be sure, the past 12 months have seen many prominent uses of ICTs by grassroots communities. The program at the University of Tilburg gives us the opportunity to bring all this knowledge together and to push the agenda forward for 2009-2010. Unlike most of the conferences we participate, ISCRAM’s program will give use more than just a few hours or couple days to engage in rich and fruitful conversations.
The objective of the 2008 ISCRAM Summer School is to provide participants (PhD students and practitioners) with an intense interactive learning experience on the possible uses of information technology to support people in local communities in their communication, collaboration and decision making efforts when preparing for or responding to a disaster.
The number of participants is limited to 30.
