Subject: RE: [emergency] Fwd: Emergency Information Systems Interop Workshop for better preparedness @ ISCRAM 2011



Thanks for forwarding this information.




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.


Best regards,


Patrick Gannon

FYI - it would be good to get OASIS involvement in this as well!


Cheers Gavin

Please do forward through your channels as well.
Dear All,

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 disaster response.

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:

For information of the ISCRAM 2011 conference the main website is:

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 Iannella or Tom de Groeve. We also want to form a steering committee for the interop workshop, so do let us know if you would like to join that.
