To help government and disaster relief organizations prepare for and manage severe disasters, the authors propose the Artificial Emergency-Logistics-Planning System (Aelps). Aelps, which is based on artificial-society theory, concurrently considers different subsystems dealing with weather, geology, epidemics, and so on. Aelps can form the basis of a complex computational platform that generates logistics phenomena during disaster relief and gives intuitive results that can be used in emergency-logistics planning.
