The PANDORA System Intermediate Evaluation took place on the 19-20 of October 2011 in Paris at CNAM (Conservatoires del Arts et del Métiers), a Public Scientific, Cultural and Professional Institution, among France's top higher education establishments.
During the intermediate evaluation trainers and trainees were involved performing a training task.
The following steps were carried out:
· Trainees profiling was performed (filling questionnaires)
· Trainees were presented with events and contexts descriptions
· Trainees were presented with choices to make and decisions to take
The trial showed that the trainees were very interested in the Pandora system and they clearly understood its potentialities. Further, the intermediate evaluation findings helped the consortium in the discussion on how best to plan next steps of the project with the main aim to increase the usability and the effectiveness of the Pandora system.
On the 11-16th of June 2011, the PANDORA project won the Best Demo Award * within the ICAPS 2011 - 21st International Conference on Automated Planning and Scheduling held in Freiburg, Germany
On the 16th of March 2011 the PANDORA project team met presented the project at the first annual technical review in Brussel.
In the context of WP3 activities (Crisis Simulation and Modelling), CEFRIEL developed two ontologies that constitute the basic "schemata" of the PANDORA Crisis Knowledge Base. Those ontologies are available on the Web, published according to the Linked Data principles. The Timeline-based Planning Ontology is the specification of the entities managed by a Timeline-based Planner to create and run a plan; this modelling reflects the basic conceptualization of AI Planning Applications based on Timeline Representations. The PANDORA Crisis Management Training Ontology is the specification of the Crisis Management Training entities described in the Crisis Knowledge Base; this ontology imports and extends the Timeline-based Planning Ontology.
