Aladdin Shamoug, & Radmila Juric. (2011). Addressing interoperability through the semantic of Information Highway in managing responses in Humanitarian Crises. In E. Portela L. S.

Abstract: We propose an Information Highway (IH) which addresses interoperability in software systems supporting Humanitarian Crises (HC) and consequently enables efficient decision making at any level: operational, organizational and donor levels. We model our IH by (a) manipulating the semantics stored in knowledge of data repositories, which are interwoven in everyday activities of managing responses to HC and (b) understanding the meaning and the purpose of requests for data retrievals issued in such environments.
