OASIS Emergency Interoperability Summit and NIEM Training Event to be held in conjunction
Published on 29 September 2009
The DM Program will have a significant role at the OASIS Emergency Interoperability Summit, being held in conjunction with this year's National Information Exchange Model (NIEM) National Training Event in Baltimore, Maryland, September 29 - October 2, 2009. The purpose of the summit is to provide attendees with a clearer understanding of the interoperable solutions being implemented today and the value of mutually supportive standards for information sharing.
A two-day series of demonstrations will showcase the interoperable exchange of emergency information between disparate systems via the DM Open Platform for Emergency Networks (DM-OPEN). DM-OPEN implements messaging standards developed through the OASIS Emergency Management Technical Committee (EM-TC), including the Common Alerting Protocol (CAP), Emergency Data Exchange Language Distribution Element (EDXL-DE), EDXL Resource Messaging (EDXL-RM), and EDXL Hospital AVailability Exchange (EDXL-HAVE).
As a member of the OASIS EM-TC Adoption Subcommittee, DM Program Trainer Tom Ferrentino has been actively involved with planning the Summit, and Gary Ham, DM Program System Architect, has been assisting demonstration participants with preparation. Both members of the DM Team will be present at the Summit to support the demonstrations.
In addition to his involvement with the demonstrations, Gary Ham has been working toward closer coordination with NIEM, and will participate on two panel discussions scheduled for September 30th:
