The Opening Ceremony at TIEMS Workshop in Prague in 2007
Cooperation in Emergency Management
On November 26 and 27, 2007, Crowne Plaza Hotel in Praha – Dejvice hosted the 10th anniversary of the International Conference on the Present and Future of Emergency Management. The conference was held under the auspices of Mr Ivan Langer, Minister of Interior of the Czech Republic; and the core topic of the conference was “How are we able to cooperate in safety assurance and in emergency situations?”
As our need for high-quality information systems is on the permanent increase, the organizers from T-SOFT Company, TIEMS international organization and other partners had set a new goal of the conference: to focus – besides other topics – on the area of the development of systems for the protection of critical infrastructure, systems with extreme requirements for safety and reliability not only for emergency management but also systems employed in emergency situations in the area of e.g. healthcare, banking, power engineering, transportation etc.
Multinational Cooperation in the Area of Preparation for Emergencies
Many conference papers focused on international activities leading to the achievement of the world’s safety, for example the international appeal for the preparation for emergencies by United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) in Geneva, activities and events of the International Emergency Management Society (TIEMS), International Strategy for Disaster Reduction (ISDR) and Central European Disaster Prevention Forum (CEUDIP).
Around 300 participants from 12 countries attended this important event.
