000 m2 . d Fig. 2 Fire scenario in the buildings labeled B1 and B2 (the set of buildings contained within each building’s neighborhood, ngb( d ), is represented by NBi ,d ). 000 m2 To simplify we assume that: i) buildings use identical construction materials, ii) buildings are residential (neither offices nor industries inside the buildings), and iii) there are no civilians, caught by fires, inside the buildings. We also assume that agents get informed about the fires the moment it starts; we are not concerned on how (through which communication channel) the agent gets such information.

1. Meta ARM Model Architecture In this framework, agents are responsible for accessing local data sources and for collaborative data analysis. The architecture includes: (i) data mining agents, (ii) data agents, (iii) task agents, (iv) user agents, and (v) mediators (JADE agents) for agents coordination. The data and mining agents are responsible for data accessing and carrying through the data mining process; these agents work in parallel and share information through the task agent. The task agent co-ordinates the data mining operations, and presents results to the user agent.

5 Experimentation and Analysis To evaluate the five Meta ARM algorithms, in the context of EMADS vision, a number of experiments were conducted. These are described and analysed in this section. The experiments were designed to analyse the effect of the following: 1. The number of data sources (data agents) . 2. The size of the datasets (held at data agents) in terms of number of records. 3. The size of the datasets (held at data agents) in terms of number of attributes. 18 running under Linux except for the first experiment where two further computers running under Windows XP were added.
