2009 (English)In: Multi-Agent System Technologies, Proceedings / [ed] Lars Braubach, Wiebe van der Hoek, Paolo Petta, Alexander Pokahr, Springer Berlin/Heidelberg, 2009, 214-219 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
In this paper, we present a framework incorporating a multi-agent system (MAS) that enables aid for international effect-based operation in emergency situations. The outcome is to empower emergency personnel, which can support collaboration between different international services by informing them about the emergency, matching competences and resources of the teams and volunteers. The challenge in emergency contexts is the abbreviations forming an information-carrying structure, which is especially important when abbreviations are exchanged between different services like rescue, military and emergency. We propose a framework, which provides the right information, rescue team, and services at the right place. The MAS can support information dissemination in dynamic situations in context, based on the information extraction and matching of the contents of the underlying ontologies. In the framework the system poses a sensible solution to the international rescue teams' need of a high quality handling of life critical situations.
