14th Crisis Management Days – CMD 2021

We would like to invite you to the 14th international scientific and professional conference Crisis Management Days, which will be held on Thursday, May 20, 2021 in Velika Gorica.

This year, the conference will be held in two parts, and the discussion will focus on the experiences, problems and challenges brought to us by natural disasters and crises in general.

The first part of the conference will take place on May 20. It will include introductory lectures and panel discussions dedicated to the recent earthquakes structured in four thematic units:

  1. What have we learned from the earthquake? Earthquake as an unacceptable risk: how to better manage earthquake risk
  2. The role of associations in disasters: Volunteers as an important operational resource in earthquake response
  3. Psychosocial aspects of disasters and crisis situations: What are the characteristics of behavior in disasters? Can it change and become “new normal”? How do crises affect a person’s mental state and health? Can we psychologically prepare for disasters?
  4. Challenges of achieving environmental and living standards in earthquake-affected areas: Have we achieved minimum hygiene standards in earthquake-affected areas such as drinking water delivery? Have we established acceptable sanitary standards and how have we reacted in the context of the environment and health? How did we react to the construction waste?

The second part of the conference will take place on September 22 and 23 when participants will give presentations in four sessions.

We plan to publish the proceedings of the conference, and the highest quality papers will be proposed for publication in the scientific journal Annals of Disaster Risk Sciences.

The deadline for submission of camera-ready papers is September 15, 2021. A detailed call for papers will be published after the first part of the conference. We would like to invite all experts and researchers who deal with crisis management and related disciplines to submit their papers, regardless of the topics mentioned here.

The introductory lectures and panel discussions will be available live via online platforms. There is no fee, but registration will be required for those who wish to participate in the discussion.

We look forward to your response!
