The DIMPLE – DIsaster Management and Principled Large-scale information Extraction – workshop took place on 31st May 2014 in the Harpa Conference Centre, Reykjavik, Iceland. Presentations from the workshop are now publicly available here.
The aim of this workshop is to explore the intrinsic connection between civil protection, information gathering and analysis, and societal impact. The mediation of these connections through the agency of language will be the central theme of the workshop. The workshop will explore how this mediation can be situated in the context of broader societal impact especially the impact of the value system of one stakeholder on others.
