On February 10th – 12th, representatives from Argonne attended the 2015 International Disaster Conference and Expo in New Orleans, Louisiana. The focus areas for the conference included building public-private partnerships and the development of technological solutions to support real-time situational awareness. After reviewing these topics, we felt that attendees would benefit from Argonne demonstrating core VCP capabilities and the piloted Real-Time Dashboard App which was featured in our last newsletter and can be viewed . At the conference we talked with many whole community partners about engagement strategies and information sharing techniques; most notably through our Real Time Dashboard (RTD) concept.
Argonne received lots of interest and valuable feedback from many partners regarding current capabilities and potential enhancements to the app. Based off this feedback, Argonne is looking for a few POCs that are interested in hosting a pilot version of the app on their initiative. Our champion POCs that participate will become active participants in the final production of this cutting edge solution that will boost situational awareness across the public and private sector for years to come! Those interested in hosting a pilot version of RTD can contact us at onVCPSupport@anl.gov for more information.
