Hi everybody,

still one late introduction:
I am a student, doing my Diploma thesis (plus some other things) based  
on a multinational crisis management project, called MNE5  
(Multinational Experiment 5) and especially its Finnish focus area,  
SHIFT. In order to increase the interoperability of the available  
information and the communication concerning the planning and  
operations stage, there is a need for both metadata and ontology  
development work.

For more information, check (brief) web pages: www.shift.fi
