Welcome to ISSASiM 2014!

4th DEXA Workshop on Information Systems for Situation Awareness and Situation Management

Workshop of the 25th International Conference on Database and Expert Systems Applications (DEXA 2014)

September 1-5, 2014 - Munich, Germany

Situation Management is a discipline which is primarily driven by the advances of sensor networks, event and process management, and machine learning. The main goal of Situation Management is to provide semantically rich real-time views of observed areas or objects as needed in various domains, disaster management, structural health monitoring, system monitoring and administration (e.g. data warehouses) or management of military strategies and tactics for instance. These views base on sets of situations that are deduced from large-scale (integrated) real-time data sources by intelligent analysis. Dynamic workflows offer a possibility to pre-define a plan for supporting decision makers or task forces in planning and coordinating certain scenarios, which should be adaptable to unexpected situation changes as simply as possible. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers and practitioners from the field of situation management. Contributions that propose innovative methods, tools and technologies that support situation management are welcome. Also, we are highly interested in contributions that report on experiences in situation management projects.
