 1st JRC Crisis Technology Workshop on Mobile Interoperability for Crisis Management / ACRIMAS Pilot Case
12 - 13 March 2012
European Crisis Management Laboratory (ECML)
European Commission - Joint Research Centre
Ispra, Italy

UPDATE: FINAL REPORT available at [GDACS portal] website!


The ACRIMAS Pilot Case took place in the European Crisis Management Laboratory (ECML) of the Joint Research Centre in Ispra, Italy, from 12 to 13 March 2012. The purpose was to make a small-scale experiment with various elements of a full-scale Demonstration Programme, in line with the iterative ACRIMAS approach of "concept development and experimentation". The purpose was to show that the methodology developed in Acrimas for evaluating demonstrations, assessing progress, and steering the iterative process of improvement can be realized.

Scenario

A disaster assessment operation must be set up in an international environment. Teams from various countries arrive on scene, each with their own tools and approaches to assess a situation and communicate it to a coordination centre. In order to set up a coordinated and integrated operation plan, the On-Site Operations Coordination Centre (OSOCC) must be able to receive, process, and visualize information from all teams. The time to agree and set up an interoperable data transmission system must be reduced to a minimum in order to start the assessment as fast as possible. The focus is on collecting categorized information to get the "big picture" of the situation.

[More details, technical framework reference, and schedule ].

Goals

  1. Provide recommendations for further improvements of interoperability
  2. Exploit mobile technology for more effective crisis coordination
  3. Demonstrate the effectiveness of the ACRIMAS "concept development and experimentation" approach for Demonstration Programmes

Registration

The number of participants is limited to 50. Participants need to register by 16th February -- UPDATE: We are keeping the registration system open for a few colleagues to enter their information until 22nd February. As long as there are places available in the system please feel free to register.
