Thanks for forwarding this information.
EM & EMA TC,
If there is sufficient interest in vendors participating in this
EISI Workshop at ISCRAM 2011, please provide feedback here or to the EMA TC
list. Supporting InterOp events such as this could be considered for
official OASIS Emergency Interoperability Member Section support. For an
event like this being held in May 2011 in Lisbon, Portugal, the EI MS and the
EMA Events SC should begin evaluation and planning to put funding requests now into
the EI MS 2011 budget.

Systems Interop Workshop for better preparedness @ ISCRAM 2011
Please do forward through your
channels as well.
I would like to announce that we are organizing an emergency/disaster
information systems interop workshop for the next ISCRAM 2011. The interop
workshop will be an environment where software vendors and information systems
solution providers can bring in their systems for testing against popular
information exchange standards such as PFIF, CAP, GeoRSS, EDXL Standards, GIS
Standards, etc. The structure will be based on the Apache interop workshops.
More importantly we will want to test, improve and validate information
exchange between systems for certain popular pre-defined use-cases utilizing
these standards. Thereby the results of this workshop will serve better
preparedness by assuring that the systems that participate are able to exchange
data effectively and work more efficiently in partnership at the time of
The interop workshop will be part of the information systems interop standards
track, where you can also submit research papers, work in progress papers,
practitioner presentations covering best practices and demos for inclusion in
ISCRAM. We are also welcoming presentations on new, existing and emerging
interop standards for educational purposes to help improve awareness,
facilitate feedback and adoption.
Participants interested in participating for the interop workshop can submit
their solutions/products/demos/functional prototypes as a demo for this track.
Further submission details can be found at:

We look forward to your participation to this much needed exercise. If you have
any suggestion on this track please do not hesitate to contact myself, Renato

interop workshop, so do let us know if you would like to join that.
