Title Survey: ICT-supported public participation in disasters Type Conference Article
Year 2012 Publication ISCRAM 2012 Conference Proceedings – 9th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2012
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords Information systems; Social networking (online); Surveying; Surveys; Facebook; Ict; Information and Communication Technologies; Key users; Participatory Sensing; Perceived usefulness; Public participation; Disasters
Abstract In an increasingly networked society citizens at disaster sites utilize information and communication technology (ICT) to communicate needs or to share information. In order to understand better emergent possibilities and implications of applying ICT for supporting public participation in disasters, we surveyed 57 respondents regarding several key user aspects as perceived usefulness, socially related issues, or deployment. Surprisingly, our results show a clear tendency to use a disaster specific application instead of using everyday services as facebook or Twitter. However, such application poses the risk to loose its focus fading slowly away after once downloading it. Further study is needed to understand if these results are representative regarding public society. © 2012 ISCRAM.

Title The effect of age on technology acceptance among field police officers Type Conference Article
Year 2013 Publication ISCRAM 2013 Conference Proceedings – 10th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2013
Volume Issue Pages 468-477
Keywords Information systems; Behavioral intention; Mobile information systems; Non-volitional use; Perceived usefulness; Police officers; Research models; Technology acceptance; User intention; Law enforcement
Abstract This paper studies the differences on technology acceptance between two age groups among uniform police forces. The goal was to seek more understanding on the effects of age on technology adaption in the context of mandatory technology use. Data was collected from police officers in field operations. User intentions were measured after subjects had seen a presentation of a pre-prototype of a mobile information system on the video. The results of this study suggest that there is no difference between the old and young age groups. Similarly, the results suggest that the effect of age is similar between the age groups on the effects of the factors in the research model. This suggests that the old police officers are similar to young police officers regarding the acceptance of new technology for their use. The most prominent result was that regression of behavioral intention on perceived usefulness was not statistically important.

Title Using mobile social media for emergency management – A design science approach Type Conference Article
Year 2011 Publication 8th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management: From Early-Warning Systems to Preparedness and Training, ISCRAM 2011 Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2011
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords Computer simulation; Information systems; Risk management; Crisis management; Design science; Large public events; Mobile social medias; Perceived ease of use; Perceived usefulness; Simulation studies; Social media; Design
Abstract Over the last couple of years social networks have become very popular and part of our daily lives. With the emergence of powerful smartphones and cheap data rates social media can now be accessed anytime and anywhere. Obviously, it makes sense to also facilitate social media for crisis management and response. In this contribution we present a system design for emergency support based on mobile social media with an emphasis on increasing security during large public events. We follow the design science approach as we provide an artifact design along with a description of its implementation and evaluate our artifact using the simulation study methodology. As a result of this study we gained valuable insight into how the users interact with our system and obtained information on how to improve it. Overall the users were quite satisfied with the perceived usefulness and the perceived ease of use of our system.
