Challenge@RuleML2015 Developing Situation-Aware Applications for Disaster Management with a Distributed Rule-Based Platform

In order to enhance interoperability and productivity in the develop-ment of situation-aware applications for disaster management, proper mecha-nisms and guidelines are required. They must address the lack of semantics in modelling emergency situations. In addition, the ever-changing and unpredicta-ble nature of disaster scenarios present challenges for information processing and collaboration. This paper proposes a framework that combines the follow-ing elements: (i) a foundational ontology for temporal conceptualization; (ii) well-founded specifications of structural and behavioral models; (iii) a CEP en-gine based on a distributed rule-based platform for situation management; (iv) a model-driven approach. We illustrate the operation of the framework with a scenario for monitoring tuberculosis epidemy.

  2. 2. Motivation Challenges: Develop SA applications, considering:  How to characterize situations and response actions  How to manage and collaborate the detected situations among SA applications  How to handle situations not specified at design-time 17/06/2015 2 Situation-aware (SA) applications try to detect situations and react to them, being particularly useful to support disaster management  Meteorological forecasting  Victims’ dead reckoning  Power plants operation  Traffic control  (etc)
