OGC requests scenarios for Crisis Management ICT Workshop

Jan 21, 2015 - The OGC and Fraunhofer IOSB have organized the Geospatial ICT Support for Crisis Management and Response workshop at ISCRAM 2015. The workshop organizers invite participation and they invite participants to submit crisis scenario descriptions. These will be used to demonstrate the effectiveness of existing international geospatial data encoding and service standards.

Efficient crisis response and management require well-informed actors and effective means for communication and policy enforcement. A secure and dependable geospatial information and communication technology (ICT) infrastructure can be an indispensable aid.

This ISCRAM 2015 workshop will be held on the afternoon of May 24, 2015 in Kristiansand, Norway. Risk and crisis management experts will meet software architects and engineers who participate in the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC) Emergency and Disaster Management (EDM) domain working group.

ISCRAM attendees are invited to contribute to this workshop by providing one page crisis and response management scenario descriptions. These will be entered into a use case server using a template. The scenario shall be written from a user's and/or stakeholder's point of view and describe an urgent and challenging need for geospatial ICT support exceeding current capabilities in terms of functionality or quality. The scenario shall identify the actors and their roles, the geographic and temporal scope, and the type of disaster.

A maximum of five authors will be selected to present and discuss their scenarios at the workshop. A facilitated discussion will identify the Geospatial ICT requirements and map them to present and future ICT capabilities in the light of emerging technological trends. Interested representatives of both communities may participate in the workshop without submitting a scenario.

The deadline for submissions is February 15th, 2015.
