Abstract or Description
Global problems such as disease detection and control, terrorism, immigration and border control, illicit drug trafficking, etc. require information sharing, coordination and collaboration among government agencies within a country and across national boundaries. This paper presents a prototype of a transnational information system which aims at achieving information sharing, process coordination and enforcement of policies, constraints, regulations, and security and privacy rules by integrating a distributed query processor with form-based and conversational user interfaces, a language translation system, an event server for event filtering and notification, and an event-trigger-rule server. The Web-services infrastructure is used to achieve the interoperation of these heterogeneous component systems.
