 5th JRC ECML Workshop: Situation Awareness & Incident Management (SAIM) ICT Systems
16-18 June 2014
European Crisis Management Laboratory (ECML)
European Commission - Joint Research Centre
Ispra, Italy

UPDATE: Workkshop report is available: http://publications.jrc.ec.europa.eu/repository/handle/JRC94062


The 5th JRC ECML workshop on situation awareness and incident management systems will take place in the European Crisis Management Laboratory (ECML) of the European Commission Joint Research Centre in Ispra, Italy, on 16-18 June 2014. The purpose is the presentation, demonstration, and exploration of software suites for crisis management.

The outcomes of the 1st JRC ECML workshop show that dedicated software solutions have to be available to crisis managers to deal with the huge amount of data streaming to situation monitoring centres and crisis management headquarters.

Goals

• Presentations of SAIM ICT systems for crisis room operation
• Demonstration showing systems' support of tasks at hand based on outcomes of 1st JRC ECML workshop
• Key variables: checklists of supported tasks, collaborative assessment discussion

Requested Functionalities

A technology gap was identified in the 1st JRC ECML workshop on mobile interoperability for international field deployment. This has to be addressed by ICT systems that support (some) of the following tasks at hand in crisis rooms:

  • Dealing with ever-changing incoming information
  • Support of exchange formats (EDXL, CAP, WMS, KML, …)
  • Adding, deleting, masking, tagging, consolidating, associating, and abstracting of information pieces
  • Collaborative analysis of information
  • Inclusion of paper-based info in the SitAware systems
  • Situational Report (SitRep) production
  • Planning support for drafting action plans
  • Communication needs (e.g., validation of information, requests for support, informing the public).
  • Preparation of printed documentation/backup material
  • Sharing, presentation, and briefing on situational picture

  List of the presentations:

  • Beyond the Myth of Control: toward the Trading Zone by Kees Boersma & Jeroen Wolbers, Department of Organization Sciences, VU University of Amsterdam
  • The organizers’ descriptions, the JRC and the DRIVER project
  • The software to be demonstrated on day three
  • Data exchange Challenges (From computer-readable data to meaningful information) by Christian Flachberger, FREQUENTIS AG

  The following applications were presented at the workshop:

  •   GINA (Zbynek Poulicek, GINA software, CZ)
  • Dashboard Water Safety (Cor-Jan Vermeulen, HKV Consulting, 
  • Jixel (Uberto Delprato, IES Solutions, IT)
  • Large event (Bruno Quere, Thales, FR)
  • The CrisisWall application (Greg Charleston, European Commission Joint Research Centre, IT)
Registration

Participation is free of charge but the number of participants is limited to 35.

Transport between airports, train stations, hotel, and the JRC are organised by and courtesy of the JRC. Accommodation and other travel costs (e.g., air, rail, car) are at the participants' expenses.
