ABSTRACT
A framework is described for developing and deploying procedural knowledge in emergency situations where collaboration is needed. In this framework, procedural knowledge is represented in a wiki using an informal, textual description that's marked up with formal tags based on the <I-N-C-A> representation for hierarchical task networks used in AI planning. The tight integration of collaborative editing with deployment is new in this system and advances knowledge engineering for planning domain (procedural) knowledge, which can reduce uncertainty in emergency situations.
