The workshop will consist of presentations, demos, and working sessions and an opportunity for system developers to test and demonstrate their system using standard scenarios and scripts in a building on the WPI campus or at a fire dept training facility.

Working sessions will be organized around the major technical challenges based on the personal experience and knowledge of the participants. The focus is on systems that do not require previously installed wiring or equipment in the target building and on systems which provide complete tracking and position information to the incident command position and all active responders.

Submitted abstracts, workshop discussions and conclusions will be combined in a published report.

The deadline for presentation proposals is May 31, 2010.
