Organizers of the 2015 IEEE International Symposium on Technologies for Homeland Security 2015 have announced a call for technical papers, posters and tutorials.
Topics include cyber security; attack and disaster preparation; recovery and response; land and maritime border security; biometrics and forensics.
Abstracts, due July 15, should focus on technologies capable of deployment within five years and cover the following topics: strategy and threat characterization, CONOPs, risk analysis; modeling, simulation, experimentation, exercise and training; test beds, and standards and evaluations.
The IEEE will publish all accepted papers, which will be presented at HST ’15 at the Westin Waltham Boston in Waltham, Massachusetts on April 14-16, 2015.
The deadline to submit an abstract is July 15, at least one author of an accepted paper is required to register for the symposium and pay the registration fee, and all submissions must describe original work not previously published or currently under review for publication in another conference or journal. The instructions for submitting an abstract can be found here.
HST ’15 is produced by IEEE with technical support from the Department of Homeland Security Science & Technology Directorate, IEEE Boston Section and IEEE-USA, along with organizational support by MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Raytheon, Battelle and MITRE.
The event brings together leading researchers and innovators working on technologies designed to deter and prevent homeland attacks, protect critical infrastructures and people, mitigate damage and expedite recovery.
