Coalitions, multiagent planning, disaster relief domains.


I-Rescue is a research programme that aims to develop knowledge-based tools for disaster relief domains. One important aspect of the I-Rescue development is to highlight the requirements regarding the collaborative activities of planning and execution, considering a hierarchical structure of decision-making and a mixed initiative style of interaction between users and systems. This paper discusses the design and implementation of I Rescue and its use in a search and rescue domain where joint users, assisted by customised agents, are able to perform complementary tasks.
