humanitarian disaster response, with active support of Sahana deployments.

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
