What I conclude from this list is that San Diego is good. But then, we
dont call it Americas Finest City for nothing. ;-)

> Hi!
>
> At the Fall-SIW Warren Katz proposed New Orleans as a possible candidate for
> Spring 2007. The CC discussed this and all agreed that 2007 is way to soon
> to hold a conference in New Orleans. Besides the direct damage of Katrina,
> New Orleans also suffers from severe problems with mold in the houses since
> the air conditionings has been out of order when the electricity was out. It
> will probably take a long time before New Orleans is a realistic suggestion
> as host for a SIW.
>
> New Orleans was in fact proposed as a location a year ago, but SCS had bad
> experience from arranging conferences in New Orleans and recommended us NOT
> to go there. All additional costs, parking fees etc, are really expensive
> and New Orleans is not a safe place. The criminality is high and you should
> not be walking around by yourself in the evenings and that discouraged CC
> from going there a year ago.
>
> Norfolk has offered to host a SIW for a couple of years and since we have
> initiated a contact with the BRIMS community and are discussing a possible
> co-location in 2007, Norfolk is an excellent location since there are Human
> Behaviour related research going on in Norfolk (crowd simulation etc).
>
> The theme of the Euro-SIW 2006 in Stockholm is Virtual Arena for Crisis
> Management, so in that aspect your praires has been heard... ;o)

> Question One: Is considered to be too populistic to be in New Orleans for

> If not, the theme could also be focused on civilian M for Crises
> Management Systems and applications broaden the SISO and also incoperate a
> community of Interest that do not are known for using interoperability

>
> Question Two: Regardless of where the SpringSIW-07 is held. For the
> FallSIW-06 or SpringSIW-07 the topic could be that described above.
