English abstract:
The system presented in the paper is the main result of
an on-going European research project WORKPAD (IST-
2005-5-034749) that aims at building and developing an innovative
software infrastructure (software,models, services,
etc.) for supporting collaborative work of human operators in
emergency/disaster scenarios. In such scenarios, different
teams, belonging to different organizations, need to collaborate
each other to reach a common goal; each team member
is equipped with handheld devices (PDAs) and communication
technologies, and should carry on specific tasks. In such
a way we can consider the whole team as carrying on a process
(macro-process), and the different teams (of the different
organizations) collaborate through the interleaving of all
the different processes. The idea is to investigate a 2-level
framework for such scenarios: a back-end peer-to-peer community,
providing advanced services requiring high computational
power, data-knowledge-content integration, and a set
of front-end peer-to-peer communities, that provide services
to human workers, mainly by adaptively enacting processes
on mobile ad-hoc networks.
