Subject: Disaster Interoperability for Incident Management - The Emergency Data Exchange Language (EDXL)

This may be of interest:
There will be a live chat tomorrow (June 8, 2005) at 12:00 noon EST.  To register go to www.emforum.org.

The EIIP  will host a 'live chat' presentation and interactive Q&A session on June 8, 2005, beginning at 12:00 noon Eastern time (please convert to your local time). Our topic will be the current efforts to develop incident messaging standards under the umbrella of the Emergency Data Exchange Language (EDXL) to allow exchange of information between differing information systems. This cooperative effort will encompass basic incident notification and situation reporting, initiating and responding to resource requests, and other analytical, geospatial, and authentication data. 
Our guest will be Chip Hines, Program Manager for the DHS/FEMA Disaster Management eGovernment Initiative, which is facilitating the development process. Mr Hines will provide an overview of the current work in developing EDXL messaging standards, how this relates to other efforts, and the long term vision for full exchange of information relating to incidents within the emergency response community. He will be joined by Lee Tincher who is leading this part of the e-Gov initiative. 
Please make plans to join us -- mark your calendar now for this important discussion in the EIIP Virtual Forum http://www.emforum.org . Please see the Background Page for further information, related links, and participant instructions. If this will be your first time to participate, please check your connection at least a day in advance by clicking on the Chat Login link at the top left.
