Abstract

Emergency response scenarios are characterized by the participation of multiple agencies, which cooperate to control the situation and restore normality. These agencies usually come from diverse areas of expertise which entail that they represent knowledge differently, using their own vocabularies and terminologies. This fact complicates the automation of the information-sharing process, arising problems like ambiguity or specialisation. In this paper we present an approach to tackle these problems by domain-aware semantic matching. This method requires the formalisation of domain-specific terminologies which will be added to a existing system oriented to ER.

OtherThe ISCRAM conference aims at exploring all dimensions of Information System domain to improve and contribute to Crisis and Disaster Management. The scope is by far incredibly wide, which makes one of the main attractive features of ISCRAM conference: “Information System” includes social, psychological, organizational, technological (and many others) aspects, while “Crisis and Disaster Management” refers to all kind of events that affects significantly human kind, from natural disasters to terrorist attacks via all types of accidents. Each and every article presented during ISCRAM conference must have one “Information System” component and one “Crisis and Disaster Management” component.
