July 2019

Dear Colleagues and friends,

On 13-15 January 2020, the 6th IPRED conference will be held in Tel-Aviv. The IPRED conference is a highly recognized event in the field of emergency and disaster management. This year’s main focus is “Communication during crises and communication management in thee of ‘Fake News’.” Additional main topics include: Mass shooting, humanitarian values, crowdsourcing emergency response, the All-Hazards Approach, and the EMT Initiative.

In contrast to previous events, this conference will utilize  a couple of innovative methods of presentation. The first one is a “5 Pictures, 5 Minutes, One Idea” track, which will allow speaker to introduce very briefly a ‘hot topic’ for discussion to spark audience enthusiasm and interest. The second one is a plenary session of TED-like talks for a selective few who can “make a show out of it”.

We offer the slots to these “Fast Tracks” to highly appreciated experts from around the world who we know to bear important messages to the audience of this conference. We would like to ask you to propose yourself for these tracks and share your knowledge, experience, and expertise with the conference attendees.

We look forward to your application soon at: www.ipred.co.il

Sincerely yours,

Prof. Kobi Peleg
Chairperson, Scientific Committee
