Interlinking tsunami early warning systems - publication in ISCRAM 2012 proceedings

Our paper "Interlinking National Tsunami Early Warning Systems towards Ocean-Wide System-of-Systems Networks" was accepted as full paper at the ISCRAM 2012 conference. If the proceedings are online, a link to the paper will be added here.

Below the slides of the presentation which took place on Tuesday 2012-04-24:


Moreover there was a demo session where the results of DEWS and TRIDEC were presented:

If you are curious about the architecture of future tsunami early warning systems, then visit the European Geosciences Union General Assembly 2012 in Vienna. An extra session full of interesting talks and posters is watiting for you:

NH5.7/ESSI1.7 - Architecture of Future Tsunami Warning Systems:

Oral Programme  / Thu, 26 Apr, 08:30–10:00 / Room 1

Poster Programme  / Attendance Thu, 26 Apr, 17:30–19:00 / Hall X/Y

Colleagues from GFZ, ATOS and University of Bologna will be present. Moreover representatives from OASIS and OGC will have talks within this session. More tsunami relevant sessions are listed here.


In the same week the 9th International Conference on Information Systems for Crisis Response and Management takes place in Vancouver [schedule-at-a-glance].

Track: Early Warning and Expert Systems for Disaster Management / Tue, 24 Apr, 14:30-16:00 / Strategy Room

Track: Poster/Demo Session / Tue, 24 Apr, 16:00-17:00 / Concourse Level

At this conference GFZ and of Fraunhofer IOSB - who are involved in the follow-up project TRIDEC - will be present.

New NHESS publication about the CCUI

NHESS-Cover A new contribution in the Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences (NHESS) journal, which is is published by the Copernicus Publications on behalf of the European Geosciences Union (EGU), portrays the highlights of the graphical user interface CCUI. This component has been developed in the DEWS project and is now continuously improved in the TRIDEC project.


Title: User interface prototype for geospatial early warning systems – a tsunami showcase

Nat. Hazards Earth Syst. Sci., 12, 555-573, 2012

Abstract: The command and control unit's graphical user interface (GUI) is a central part of early warning systems (EWS) for man-made and natural hazards. The GUI combines and concentrates the relevant information of the system and offers it to human operators. It has to support operators successfully performing their tasks in complex workflows. Most notably in critical situations when operators make important decisions in a limited amount of time, the command and control unit's GUI has to work reliably and stably, providing the relevant information and functionality with the required quality and in time.
