Title Event definition for the application of event processing to intelligent resource management 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 Information systems; Natural resources management; Resource allocation; Emergency response; Event; Event definition; Event Processing; Event recognition; Resource management; Emergency services
Abstract The application of event processing methods and systems carries high potential for the domain of crisis management and emergency response for different use cases and architectural aspects. This hypothesis is based on the general event based characteristics of the domain as well as former research approaches. Resource management represents a complex task for decision makers; therefore it is taken as a basic use case for this work. It builds up on foundations of resource management (use case and demand side) and event processing (technology and supply side). Methods and results are presented for the identification, definition and validation of events that happen in reality and corresponding event objects which are processed by information systems.

Title Next Generation, Secure Cloud-based Pan-European Information System for Enhanced Disaster Awareness Type Conference Article
Year 2015 Publication ISCRAM 2015 Conference Proceedings – 12th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2015
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords Common information space; information management; pan-European communication; secure cloud-based information sharing
Abstract Information management in disaster situations is challenging, yet critical for efficient response and recovery. Today information flows are difficult to establish, partial, redundant, overly complex or insecure, besides the interoperability between heterogeneous organisations is limited. This paper presents a novel system architecture that enables combining of several communication technologies in a secure manner. This supports creation of a pan-European ‘Common Information Space’ by rescue organizations that can enable more efficient and effective information management in disaster response. Moreover, this technology can be used for disaster preparedness (e.g., training, tutorials). The modular architecture is designed to consider future evolutions of technology by defining interfaces for the integration of new technologies and services.

Title Designing with Users: Co-Design for Innovation in Emergency Technologies Type Conference Article
Year 2015 Publication ISCRAM 2015 Conference Proceedings – 12th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2015
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords Collaborative design; Common information space; ELSI; Interoperability; IT
Abstract In this paper, we motivate the need for collaborative research and design for IT innovation in crisis response and management. We describe the value of such methodology and demonstrate how working alongside users enables creative anticipation of emergent future practices that can inform both more ‘appropriate’ and more ambitious innovation. We demonstrate how co-design methods are particularly valuable for eliciting ethical, legal, and social issues that would otherwise go unconsidered.

Title Cloud ethics for disaster response 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 284-288
Keywords Cloud computing; Data privacy; Design; Disasters; Information systems; Interoperability; Philosophical aspects; Common information spaces; Cultural practices; Data minimizations; Disaster response; Elsi; Ethics; Innovative design; Sharing information; Emergency services
Abstract In emergencies, exceptions to data protection raise concerns that data may become available to unexpected actors during and after a crisis, resulting in privacy intrusion and social sorting. Apart from ethical issues, there are legal issues, for example around data minimization and issues around social and cultural practices of sharing information. This paper explores key ethical, legal and social issues (ELSI) in utilizing cloud computing for disaster response and management and some examples of innovative design.

Title Intelligent use of geospatial information for emergency operation management Type Conference Article
Year 2007 Publication Intelligent Human Computer Systems for Crisis Response and Management, ISCRAM 2007 Academic Proceedings Papers Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2007
Volume Issue Pages 181-190
Keywords Information services; Multimedia systems; Natural resources management; Ontology; Resource allocation; Geo-spatial informations; Map service; Mobile data service; Mobile service architectures; Multi-media communications; Planning and controlling; Rescue operations; Resource management; Information management
Abstract This paper presents the EU project SHARE which aims at developing a mobile service architecture to support large-scale rescue operations with multimedia communication and information services. The task of planning and controlling large-scale rescue operations requires flexible and robust tools which help the rescue forces to do their search and rescue work with maximum efficiency. Resource planning tools and cartographic information about the operation site are essential to fulfill the complex task of operation management. The Interactive Resource Management and MAP3D are two modules which have been developed in the SHARE project to enable the rescue operation leadership to do efficient coordination of their forces during an operation. Our paper will focus on features and interdependencies of both tools taking into account innovative feedback and interaction mechanisms.

Title Taxonomy of IT support for training emergency response & management 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 374-378
Keywords Information systems; Taxonomies; Emergency preparedness; Emergency response; Exercise; Learning managements; Market researches; Technological progress; Training exercise; Work in progress; Emergency services
Abstract Training is a prerequisite for effective and efficient emergency response and management. Information technology (IT) offers high potential to support various educational methods and environments. One example for interdependent use cases is given by planning, controlling, observation and debriefing of training exercises. Dedicated IT systems are available to support these use cases; nevertheless, there is no joint understanding of system use cases, types and functionality as a fundament for scientific and technological progress. This work in progress paper presents results of literature and market research complemented by expert interviews leading to a taxonomy of relevant IT components and systems.

Title Using scenarios for the identification of real-world events in an event-based system Type Conference Article
Year 2010 Publication ISCRAM 2010 – 7th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management: Defining Crisis Management 3.0, Proceedings Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2010
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords Information systems; Requirements engineering; Risk management; Engineering process; Event trace; Real-world; Sequence diagrams; Use cases; User centered designs; Software architecture
Abstract This work focuses on the requirements engineering process of an event-based system in the domain of emergency management. The goal is to identify events which occur and have an effect on the actions and decision making during an operation. We outline a case study to apply scenario-based requirements engineering processes to describe and identify events. Under the special circumstances of the case study one important result is the need of integrating multiple sources into the scenario generation activities due to the singular characteristics of many operations.

Title Design and modeling of a domain ontology for fire protection Type Conference Article
Year 2010 Publication ISCRAM 2010 – 7th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management: Defining Crisis Management 3.0, Proceedings Abbreviated Journal ISCRAM 2010
Volume Issue Pages
Keywords Fire extinguishers; Fire protection; Information analysis; Information systems; Interoperability; Semantic Web; Semantics; Command and control process; Design and modeling; Domain ontologies; Emergency response; Heterogeneous domains; Information sharing; Ontology language; Semantic technologies; Command and control systems
Abstract The semantics of things represent the central problem of the heterogeneous domain of emergency response. Both the communication between human actors and the interface between information systems face this hurdle with high impact on the efficiency in mission and time critical command and control processes. The integration of applications and information sharing based on semantic technologies promise added value for a solution to this problem. Therefore a model of the domain is essential; this paper contributes a domain ontology for fire protection. The scientific discussion as well as expert interviews built the basis for a new modeling approach. The selection of ontology languages is one of the important design issues presented in this paper.
