We are pleased to announce the launch of the W3C Emergency Information Community Group [1].

The aim of the Emergency Information Community Group is to support the development of semantic vocabularies and common frameworks for information interoperability to ensure the meaningful sharing and aggregation of information to assist in emergency, crisis, and humanitarian functions. This Community Group provides a forum for the exchange of ideas and experiences, scenarios and requirements, and the development of community specifications to drive future formal standardisation.

This group is a continuation and expansion of the previous W3C Emergency Information Interoperability Framework Incubator Group [3] which produced a final report [4] recommending continuation of the work [5]. New work to be included are the Management of a Crisis (MOAC) Vocabulary Specification [6] and the Humanitarian eXchange Language [7].

Joining the W3C Emergency Information Community Group is free [2].
