TRIDEC TRIDEC Tutorial: Social Media & Natural Language Processing Antje Treutler 2013-08-13T13:39:32Z 2013-08-13T12:42:03Z <p> Approximately 60 participants attended the 3-hour tutorial titled "Exploiting Social Media for Natural Language Processing: Bridging the Gap between Language-centric and Real-world Applications" at the annual international conference of the Association for Computational Linguistics (ACL).The conference took place on 4th August 2013 in Sofia, Bulgaria. Prof. Dr. Simone Ponzetto (University of Mannheim) and Dr. Andrea Zielinski (Fraunhofer IOSB) presented there the basics, theory and practical applications for Twitter analysis. In this context, the Tridec project was presented and a live demonstration of the tsunami early warning on the basis of social media was shown.</p> <p> <a href=";groupId=10547&amp;t=1376397859179" target="_blank" title="Click to enlarge!"><img alt="" src=";groupId=10547&amp;t=1376398118520" style="width: 425px; height: 283px;" /></a></p> Antje Treutler 2013-08-13T12:42:03Z TRIDEC Drilling Summer Course Antje Treutler 2013-07-24T09:11:46Z 2013-07-24T09:03:07Z <p> <img alt="" src=";groupId=10547&amp;t=1374656619265" style="width: 500px; height: 324px;" /></p> <p> As part of the "Drilling Summer Course" of the University of Leoben JOANNEUM employees have presented the EU project "Tridec - Collaborative, Complex and Critical Decision Support in Evolving Crises".

This session addresses among others main achievements of and future challenges for the architecture of warning systems. Relevant topics include but are not limited to:<br /> - Integration of heterogeneous sensor systems<br /> - Application of unconventional sensors for situation assessment and damage estimation, e.g. blogs, smartphone apps, and low cost mobile airborne sensors<br /> - Process design of standard operational procedures in warning centres<br /> - Integration of simulation systems for forecasting of processes as well as systematic testing of warning systems<br /> - Message-based coordination of activities of warning centres in a system-of-systems environment, e.g. based on the Common Alerting Protocol (OASIS)<br /> - Concepts of and best practices for the operation of complex multinational warning systems, e.g. utilisation of service level agreements (SLA) and IT Infrastructure Library procedures (ITIL)." </em><a href="" target="_blank">more</a></p> Antje Treutler 2013-04-04T08:42:36Z Visit us at Hannover Messe 2013 Dorit Ines Kerschke 2013-03-15T11:33:13Z 2013-03-15T11:33:13Z <p> <b style="font-size: 14px; line-height: 19px; color: rgb(178, 34, 34);">Visit us at Hannover Messe 2013</b></p> <p> <span style="font-size: 12px; text-align: justify; line-height: 1.4;">We invite you to visit us at the joint Fraunhofer IOSB – TRIDEC booth at the Hannover Messe from 8–12 April 2013.</span></p> <p> <img alt="" src=";groupId=68208&amp;t=1363347035932" style="width: 524px; height: 210px;" /></p> Dorit Ines Kerschke 2013-03-15T11:33:13Z TRIDEC is honored with the IRM Global Risk Award 2013 Dorit Ines Kerschke 2013-03-05T11:36:12Z 2013-03-05T10:49:38Z <p>  </p> <p class="p1" style="text-align: justify;"> <span class="s1">The TRIDEC Project was honored with the <a href="" target="_blank">IRM Global Risk Award 2013</a> in the category ‘Managing Risks across Boundaries‘.</span></p> <p class="p2" style="text-align: justify;"> <span style="line-height: 1.4;">The <a href="" target="_blank">Institute of Risk Management (IRM)</a> is the world‘s leading enterprise-wide risk education institute.

Both institutes are partners in the TRIDEC project that is coordinated by the GFZ.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> On November 27–28, 2012, two scenarios in the European-wide Tsunami exercise NEAMWave2012 were successfully accomplished with IPMA and KOERI as responsible partners. The software demonstrated the seamless integration of diverse components including sensor systems, simulation data, and dissemination hardware. The functionalities that were showcased significantly exceeded the internationally agreed range of capabilities. This included direct Centre-to-Centre communication via software systems between Turkey and Portugal and also the ingestion of eyewitness reports sent from mobile devices via apps. Also the crowd-mapping platform Ushahidi was integrated, which has been repeatedly used to capture eyewitness reports during natural disasters.</p> <p style="text-align: justify;"> Four of the 18 organizations participating in the exercise acted as so-called Candidate Tsunami Watch Providers (CTWP) in four different scenarios. They disseminated warning messages on an international level to the other participants, acting as Tsunami Warning Focal Points (TWFP) and also on the national level as National Tsunami Warning Centers (NTWC), distributing the warning messages to the corresponding Civil Protection Agency (CPA) in charge.</p> Dorit Ines Kerschke 2012-11-29T13:35:43Z Real-time drilling monitoring system in TRIDEC Antje Treutler 2012-11-21T22:03:48Z 2012-11-21T21:47:42Z <p> you are cordially invited to discuss a new online drilling monitoring system introduced by</p> <p> <strong>Dr. Herwig Zeiner</strong></p> <p> Joanneum Research, Graz, Austria</p> <p> on Tuesday, 27.
