Publications related to the WebKB project

This is a subset of the chronologically-sorted publications of Dr. Ph. Martin.
To access a publication, click on its "author" header. For an overview of the main technical ideas, see the articles prefixed by a star in the list below. In the references of conference/workshop articles below, the normal font is used only for the articles which (in my view) best describe the results of my research: a 9 point font is used for the other articles.

Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050), Volume 15, Issue 14 (July 2, 2023; DOI: 10.3390/su151410803) and Special Issue "Disaster Risk Reduction: In Support of the Sendai Framework and Improved Societal Well-being".

    Impact Factor: 3.9; CiteScore (Scopus): 5.8; full open access; no Article Processing Charge (APC): this interdisciplinary special issue was organised by the Standing Committee on Disaster Risk Reduction of the International Science Council (ISC) GeoUnions and members of the UN Office for Disaster Risk Reduction as a result of their Seventh Session of the Global Platform for Disaster Risk Reduction (GP2022). One of their major focus is the "building of risk knowledge", hence of techniques for organizing, sharing and exploiting this knowledge; these techniques are the focus of this article. This article is a strong extension of an earlier version in Springer's selected papers of ITDRR 2020, 5th international conference on "Information Technology in Disaster Risk Reduction".
