Tomorrow I’ll travel to Tilburg in the Netherlands to attend the ISCRAM Summer School (ISS) for the first time. The ISCRAM (Information Systems for Crisis Response And Management) community is all about the design of technology used in crisis, and this years summer school addresses new technologies for citizen participation in crisis preparedness and response. I know that I will have a great time over at ISS, and I hope I’ll meet a lot of interesting people. I don’t doubt it as the idea is to create a creative and inspiring milieu for PhD Student and invited speakers. I’m looking forward to ten days of inspiring lectures, workshops and excursions.

Trivia: Bas Rutten was born in Tilburg in 1965
