In every disaster and crisis, incident time is the enemy, and getting accurate information about the scope, extent, and impact of the disaster is critical to creating and orchestrating an effective disaster response and recovery effort. Decision Support Systems (DSSs) for disaster and crisis situations need to solve the problem of facilitating the broad variety of sensors available today. This includes the research domain of the Internet of Things (IoT) and data coming from social media. All… 
The Backbone of Decision Support Systems: The Sensor to Decision Chain
This paper presents solutions and technologies to integrate those steps seamlessly, also demonstrating how each step of the pipeline can be visualized.
The Backbone of Decision Support Systems
Understanding the current situation is critical in every natural disaster or crisis. Therefore, there is a need for accurate and up-to-date information about the scope, extent and impact of a
Improving Resilience Using Drones for Effective Monitoring after Disruptive Events
We observe a world of increasing anxiety due to natural and man-made disasters, pandemics, and military conflicts. Such disruptive events lead to decreased infrastructure and personnel availability;
From Data to Service Intelligence: Exploring Public Safety as a Service
It is explained how service intelligence can act on immaterial artefacts to transform data into information to generate value co-creation processes whose outcomes are applied to the evolution of knowledge in public safety services.
An Environmental Sensor Data Suite Using the OGC SensorThings API
In many application domains sensor data contributes an important part to the situation awareness required for decision making. Examples range from environmental and climate change situations to
SEMAPRO 2019 Proceedings
While many writing assistance systems can automatically correct grammatical errors, most do not provide any explanation about their suggested corrections. This paper proposes an algorithm that


Design of DSS for Supporting Preparedness to and Management of Anomalous Situations in Complex Scenarios
Decision Support Systems (DSS) are complex technological tools, which enable an accurate and complete scenario awareness, by integrating data from both “external” (physical) situation and current
SoKNOS - Using Semantic Technologies in Disaster Management Software
The SoKNOS support system is introduced, which is a functional prototype for such software using semantic technologies for various purposes, and it is shown how the pervasive and holistic use of semantic technologies leads to a significant improvement of both the development and the usability of disaster management software.
An Integrated System for Regional Environmental Monitoring and Management Based on Internet of Things
The study shows that the research work is greatly benefited from such an IIS, not only in data collection supported by IoT, but also in Web services and applications based on cloud computing and e-Science platforms, and the effectiveness of monitoring processes and decision-making can be obviously improved.
Crowdsourcing Linked Open Data for Disaster Management
This paper shows how Linked Open Data can ease the challenges of information triage in disaster response efforts. Recently, disaster management has seen a revolution in data collection. Local victims
Getting the environmental information across: from the Web to the user
This work presents an environmental information platform that supports submission of user queries related to environmental conditions and orchestrates results from complementary services to generate personalized suggestions.
An Ontological Framework for Decision Support
This paper proposes to employ an ontological representation for all the content both processed and produced by a DSS in answering requests, capable of encoding (i) the request, (ii) the data relevant for it, and (iii) the conclusions/suggestions/decisions produced by the DSS.
Modelling of an Ontology for a Communication Platform
The design of the ontology based on research of already existing ontologies is presented and keywords-ontology design; communication platform; Web Ontology Language (OWL).
A Framework for the Development of Decision Support Systems
A descriptive model is developed to assess the performance objectives and the capabilities of a DSS as viewed by three of the major participants in their continued development and use.
