Abstract With the frequent occurrence of emergency incidents in recent years, developing intelligent and effective decision support systems for emergency response and management is getting crucial to the government and public administration. Prior research has made many efforts in constructing crisis databases over the decades. However, existing emergency management systems built on top of these databases provide limited decision support capabilities and are short of information processing and reasoning. Furthermore, ontology based on logic description and rules has more semantics description capability compared to traditional relational database. Aiming to extend existing studies and considering ontology's reusability, this paper presents an approach to build ontology-based DSSs for crisis response and management. © 2012 ISCRAM.
