"I'm interested in learning more about ISCRAM after listening to this presentation."

"Enjoyed the comment to the effect that no one believes what is being reported / said or no ground truth anywhere in the world. Illuminating comment."

"Thrilled the information is publically available. Too often I do research to try to bring ideas out of study and into practice only to find I have to subscribe or pay a high fee for a document that may or may not have value. Impressed with what I have seen on the web site. Thanks for bringing them to the Forum."

Dr. Susanne Jul is current vice-chair and a founding board member of ISCRAM (International Association for the Study of Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management). As an independent researcher, she focuses on ways of operationalizing research: interpreting research results for practical application, and developing research methods from successful design and innovation practices. She is also president of Amaryllis Consulting, where many of her efforts help distributed teams and multi-institutional collaborations become effective in using participatory problem-solving and decision-making strategies. She is fascinated with concepts of leadership, management and collective decision-making, particularly in critical situations, and is an active volunteer with American Red Cross Disaster Services with whom she has deployed on numerous occasions including Hurricane Katrina. With a Ph.D. in computer science/human-computer interaction, her work is often entwined with design, adoption and use of information technology.
