Reputation and Energy aware Search for SupPOrting Natural Disasters
Upon the occurrence of a natural disaster in an urban area, it is expected a sudden rise of a large number of people making intensive use of mobile devices to get information. At the same time, a huge amount of information is expected to be generates from many different sources. In this project we aim to give an answer to the following questions: How to provide an infrastructure which is tolerant to disruption and delays, considering the constraints of the network in an environment composed of mobile devices? How we can get and disseminate relevant and diverse information from sources in an effective way, considering constraint such as temporarily lack of communication, energy consumption, and bounded capacity of nodes to store information?
