Lessons from the evacuation of the world trade centre, 9/11 2001 for the development of computer-based simulations

C.W. Johnson
2005 Cognition, Technology & Work  
These criticisms are based on a detailed study of the recent findings from the 9/11 Commission (2004). Ten different lessons are identified.  ...  A final benefit is that the tool can derive evacuation simulations directly from existing architects models; this reduces the cost of simulations and creates a more prominent role for these tools in the  ...  Acknowledgements I would like to thank the other members of the Department of Computing Science, University of Glasgow for their support. Thanks are due to Prof. R.  ...

Kodak Moments, Flashbulb Memories: Reflections on 9/11

Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett
2003 TDR: The Drama Review  
Scopas meanly told the poet that he would only pay him half the sum agreed upon for the panegyric and that he must obtain the rest from the twin gods to whom he had devoted half the poem.  ...  He rose from the banquet and went out but could find no one.  ...  anniversary of 9/11, the New York Times reported that, "A magazine on flying and a flight simulator computer game were among the items found at a suspected Al Qaeda base in Kabul" (Filkins 2002:3) .  ...

Applying the lessons of the attack on the world trade center, 11th September 2001, to the design and use of interactive evacuation simulations

C. W. Johnson
2005 Proceedings of the SIGCHI conference on Human factors in computing systems - CHI '05  
The tools avoid some of the ethical and legal problems from simulating evacuations; many people were injured during the 1993 evacuation of the World Trade Center (WTC) complex.  ...  Initiatives in the United States and in Europe have led to the development of interactive simulators that model evacuation from these buildings.  ...  Evidence for this argument has been provided by a detailed study of the 9/11 Commission's report into the attacks on the World Trade Center.  ...

Repertoires of Collaboration for Disaster Management: Negotiating Emergent and Dynamic Systems Success [chapter]

Deborah Bunker, Linda Levine, Carol Woody
2013 IFIP Advances in Information and Communication Technology  
As a result of lessons learned from this analysis we suggest that developing a supplementary "repertoires of collaboration" approach to the negotiation of DoP for disaster management, would have a positive  ...  These would facilitate the generation of a dynamic operating picture (DoP), providing a range of systems options with which to better manage disasters.  ...  Then the second plane hit the World Trade Center.  ...

Margit Kristensen, Morten Kyng, Leysia Palen
2006 Proceedings of the SIGCHI conference on Human Factors in computing systems - CHI '06  
Through qualitative research and participatory design, we have examined the features of EMS work and technology use in different emergency situations from the perspective of multiple actors.  ...  We discuss how commitments to participatory design and attention to the qualitative differences between minor and major incidents address challenges identified by disaster sociologists when designing for  ...  Byczuk, who developed the first version of the biomonitor system. Finally we thank Michael Muller for thorough critique and assistance in finalizing the paper.  ...
