Title Reference task-based design of crisis management games Type Conference Article
Year 2014 Publication ISCRAM 2014 Conference Proceedings – 11th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2014
Volume Issue Pages 592-596
Keywords Disaster prevention; Disasters; Information systems; Personnel training; Disaster management; Evaluation; Game design; Humanitarian logistics; Information anagement; Serious games; Design
Abstract Serious games are an effective tool for giving players a hands-on, immersive experience of crisis situations. To simplify the design of such games while ensuring their relevance, we propose a design method that is based on reference tasks. The feasibility of this approach is demonstrated by the improved design of the serious game “Disaster in my Backyard” that has been played during ISCRAM Summer school 2013. The design incorporates humanitarian logistics, search-and-rescue and coordination tasks. We also present the lessons learned from this instantiation of the game and give an outlook towards future research, such as the evaluation of tools for crisis response and management through the use of serious games and reference tasks.

Title Twitter integration and content moderation in GDACSmobile 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 67-71
Keywords Disaster prevention; Disasters; Mobile devices; Social networking (online); Content moderation; Coordination; Gdacs; GDACSmobile; Needs Assessment; Social media; Twitter; Information management
Abstract Recent years have shown that mobile devices and Twitter can play a significant role in providing real-time data from disaster-affected areas to disaster managers. Against this background we present a workflow for Twitter integration into a disaster management information system, and a concept for content moderation that can increase the quality of disseminated information.

Title A Human-is-the-Loop Approach for Semi-Automated Content Moderation Type Conference Article
Year 2016 Publication ISCRAM 2016 Conference Proceedings 13th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2016
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords Disaster Management; Social Media Analysis; Human-Is-The-Loop; Content Moderation; Supervised Machine Learning
Abstract Online social media has been recognized as a valuable information source for disaster management whose volume, velocity and variety exceed manual processing capacity. Current machine learning systems that support the processing of such data generally follow a human-in-the-loop approach, which has several inherent limitations. This work applies the human-is-the-loop concept from visual analytics to semi-automate a manual content moderation workflow, wherein human moderators take the dominant role. The workflow is instantiated with a supervised machine learning system that supports moderators with suggestions regarding the relevance and categorization of content. The instantiated workflow has been evaluated using in-depth interviews with practitioners and serious games. which suggest that it offers good compatibility with work practices in humanitarian assessment as well as improved moderation quality and higher flexibility than common approaches.
