ISCRAM is a learned society for people interested in Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management. The acronym was first used for the first international ISCRAM Workshop held in Brussels in 2004.

From 2004 to 2009, the ISCRAM Community expanded into a globally active community of researchers, academics, practitioners, policy makers with an interest in this new area.  In 2009, the ISCRAM Association was formally established as a non-profit association in Belgium. A new Constitution was approved and a new Board was elected at the first General Assembly at the ISCRAM2009 Conference in Gothenburg. At the ISCRAM2011 Conference in Lisbon, the new Bylaws of the Association were approved at the General Assembly.

The ISCRAM Association's primary mission is to foster a community dedicated to promoting research and development, exchange of knowledge and deployment of information systems for crisis management, including the social, technical and practical aspects of all information and communication systems used or to be used in all phases of management of emergencies, disasters and crises.
