RELIEF 12-03 Camp Roberts Newsletter (May 2012)
Dr. Ray Buettner, Tristan Allen
May 2012 RELIEF experiments took a trip east hosted by National Defense University’s TIDES Project in Washington DC. This eleventh meeting of our quarterly field explorations convened over 60 participants from 30+ organizations from government, non-profit, private industry and academia. A contrast to Camp Roberts’ field environment, NDU’s campus in Washington DC was an ideal location to hold tabletop discussions relating to RELIEF experimentation. Focused on the workflows pioneered through past RELIEF initiatives and planning for larger field-based experimentation in August 2012, the event benefited from diverse participation from numerous federal entities and members of the humanitarian assistance and disaster relief communities.
