2011 IEEE 20th International Workshops on Enabling Technologies: Infrastructure for Collaborative Enterprises (2011)
June 27, 2011 to June 29, 2011
In crisis situations (natural or industrial disasters, riots, . . . ), the different actors managing crisis resolution have to act simultaneously in emergency to reduce its impacts on the real world. To achieve this common goal as effectively and efficiently as possible, these actors (police, military forces, medical organizations, non-governmental organizations but also emerging groups) have to collaborate and act in a coordinated way. In the term coordination, we include all the work needed for the actors, for the connected integration of their information systems and also for the flexible synchronization of their efforts, in order to handle the crisis in the most efficient way. This coordination may occur during all the phases of a crisis, from the mitigation to the recovery phase.
