EPISECC participates in the Information Infrastructuring Workshop

On 26 January, the EU FP7 projects EPISECC, SecInCoRe, SECTOR, and REDIRNET, in association with the University of Lancaster, the Centre for Mobilities research and PSCE organized a workshop on Information Infrastructuring under the auspices of the 9th Computers, Privacy and Data Protection (CPDP) conference.
Digital technologies introduce complex ethical, legal and social challenges (ELSI) around data quality, relevance and usability, privacy, data protection and sharing. This one day workshop explored challenges and opportunities by bringing together groups that work with various information sharing technologies in crisis management, including practitioners, academic researchers. The workshop aimed at comparing how information infrastructuring was managed, what problems have been identified and what solutions were promoted.
Mr. Kristof Huysmans from KU Leuven delivered a presentation regarding the ‘Lawful conduct in CIS’. He explained to the participants, EPISCECC’s objective is to provide the opportunity to information systems from different DM stakeholders, domains and vendors to exchange information. In order to tackle contextual issues, EPISECC gives to every first responder agency an adaptor. This adaptor transfers from EPISECC terminology to the terminology of the user. The user can install their toolbox. The aim is to establish semantic and synthetic interoperability and data formats. The implementation is based on decentralized architecture. Mr Huysmans lastly underline that the liability and responsibility falls on every user of EPISECC in terms of data protection.
