    Project Description

    Management of a safe and successful event requires detailed planning and complex system-wide decision making. The industry has adopted a number of regulations to effectively manage individual events. However, the research of medical emergency knowledge management for just in time decision support in mass gatherings lags behind the needs of the community. In response this research aims to investigate how mobile technologies can facilitate and enable effective context-aware decision support for medical emergency management in mass gatherings. We aim to develop generic ontology and test a prototype decision support system for managing medical emergency knowledge across different mass gatherings events.
