Abstract : During a crisis, especially in catastrophic situations, many people from many organisations gather, physically at the location of the crisis or virtually through different networks to try to cope with the situation. These people belong to different organisations that need to collaborate in an effective and safe way. Supporting the collaboration of this commmunity of people and organisations, helping them to coordinate their actions, to share and make sense of the information that is produced is a challenge for CSCW research. In this talk, we will cover the issues related to coordination and information sharing that may occur during a crisis. We will address them from a social science perspective and from a technical perspective. We will present recent information system and computer science work that aim at supporting collaboration between people at a large scale. We will show how this opens research perspectives and call for adequate methods that requires close collaboration between social scientists, practitioners and computer scientist on the long run.
