November 8 - 9, 2021
2021 Virtual IEEE International Symposium on Technologies for Homeland Security

Border Security, Critical Infrastructure Protection, and Law

Enforcement

Track focus: Technologies to protect borders, critical infrastructure, key resources (CI/KR), population centers, and to facilitate threat detection (including chemical, biological, nuclear, explosives) and counter-terrorism surveillance. Technologies to track responders, improve situational awareness, and better mitigate, respond to, recover from incidents. Technologies that enable remote detection of unlawful movement or action, and non-invasive transport screening. Biometrics and forensics technologies to aid law enforcement for effective data analysis, identification verification, and evidence evaluation.   Topics of Interest to this track include, but are not limited to: Detection of hazardous materials, field detection equipment, dispersion tracking Machine learning, advanced analytic methods, predictive modeling Situational awareness/situational understanding and decision support Decontamination and restoration strategies, equipment, approaches, and sensing following WMD events Autonomous, robotic, composable, and artificial intelligence for offsetting human response capabilities Personnel Screening Container/Compartment/Vehicle screening (detection, monitoring, and tracking) Port (land, sea, and air) and in-between-port surveillance, sensors, and intelligence integration and data analytics Automated recognition and identification of suspicious objects Surveillance and communications (especially in remote environments) Multimodal biometrics and new biometrics and novel sensing technologies such as wearable technology applications Robust biometrics with respect to standoff, environmental conditions, channel impairments, and adversaries Nationwide and International biometric data interoperability and statistical estimation and reporting Evaluation of the scientific basis, validity, reliability, and uncertainty of forensic analyses under realistic case scenarios Human observer bias and sources of human error with forensic sciences Tools and protocols (automated and manual) for forensic examinations, methods, and pratices Bio/pandemic threats at border crossings/ports of entry Detection/mitigation of cyber as well as physical attacks on CI/KR particularly electrical & water grids Economic models to support the development & deployment of new technology and enable the transformation of the CI/KR infrastructure
