Title (up) A concept for interoperability of security systems in public transport 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; European research project; Heterogeneous communication; Heterogeneous information; Operational business; Public transport; Security; Shared understanding; System-of-systems architecture; Interoperability
Abstract In the field of public transport, operators and first responders collaborate in the prevention of and reaction to security issues. In order to optimise their specific daily operational business needs in a timely manner heterogeneous information and communication systems are deployed. In case of an incident however it is crucial that the various involved parties exchange relevant information to develop a shared understanding and act in a coordinated way. Yet, heterogeneous communication and information system infrastructures often hinder this crucial flow of information. To address this shortcoming it is crucial to enable the design of interoperable system-of-systems approaches in this domain. This paper describes a conceptual model to construct system-of-systems environments in the domain of security in public transport. By building on the results of several European research projects this concept offers a starting point for modelling and documenting individual systems inside a system-of-systems architecture. © 2012 ISCRAM.

Title (up) Emergency management: From user requirements to a flexible P2P architecture 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 271-279
Keywords Civil defense; Design; Disasters; Risk management; Civil protection; Continuous interactions; Emergency management systems; Emergency scenario; European research project; High level architecture; Peer-to-peer architectures; User centered designs; Information management
Abstract The most effective way to design an emergency management system matching user needs is to perform a User-Centered Design; it relies on continuous interactions with end-users in order to understand better and better how organizations are arranged during emergencies, which data are exchanged and which steps are performed by organizations to face disastrous events. In this paper we (i) illustrate the methodology used to collect the user requirements for the emergency management system developed in the European research project WORKPAD, and (ii) describe the WORKPAD high level architecture stemming from such requirements. Specifically, the methodology is applied in the context of Regional Civil Protection of Calabria (Italy) and is used as basis to provide more general user requirements for emergency management systems.

Title (up) Interlinking national tsunami early warning systems towards ocean-wide system-of-systems networks 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 Disaster prevention; Electronic data interchange; Information systems; Markup languages; Cap; Common alerting protocols; Disaster management; Early warning; Edxl; European research project; Reference implementation; Tsunami early-warning systems; Tsunamis
Abstract For the integration of national tsunami warning systems to large scale, ocean-wide warning infrastructures a specific protocol has been developed enabling system communication in a system-of-system environment. The proposed communication model incorporates requirements of UNESCO Intergovernmental Oceanic Commission tsunami programme to interlink national tsunami early warning systems. The model designed to be robust simple is based on existing interoperability standards. It uses the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP) for the exchange of official tsunami warning bulletins. Sensor measurements are communicated via markup languages of the Sensor Web Enablement (SWE) suite. Both communication products are embedded into an envelope carrying address information based on the Emergency Data Exchange Language Distribution Element (EDXL-DE). The research took place within the context of two European research projects. The reference implementation of the presented results was tested independently in deployments at two early warning centers. © 2012 ISCRAM.
