Dear all - welcome to the EIIF XG!

We have an interesting and challenging set of activities ahead for  
this year, as described in our Charter [1]

Of the two first activities:
   1 - review of the state of the art of crisis ontologies/vocabularies
   2 - interoperability information framework for emergency management

We will start to collect and categorise items for 1) on our Wiki [2].

As is usual in new groups, please also feel free to send an email  
introducing yourself and what specific goals you have with this XG.

For me, if we can get to the point of understanding the landscape of  
information standards and vocabularies, with a clear framework to work  
towards, then we should progress the uptake of informations standards  
across emergency management.

I should also note that I will also act as liaison with the OASIS  
Emergency Management Technical Committee (as I am a member there) as  
CAP and the EDXL family are an integral part of the standards landscape.


Cheers...  Renato Iannella
NICTA
