The tenth annual IEEE Conference on Technologies for Homeland Security (IEEE HST '10) will focus on innovative technologies for deterring and preventing attacks, protecting critical infrastructure and individuals, and mitigating damage and expediting recovery. Submissions are desired in the broad areas of critical infrastructure and key resources protection (CIKR), border protection and monitoring, and disaster recovery and response, with application within about five years.
This conference brings together innovators from leading universities, research laboratories, Homeland Security Centers of Excellence, small businesses, system integrators, and the end user community and provides a forum to discuss ideas, concepts, and experimental results. Stakeholders continue to include federal, state, local, tribal, and private sector organizations. This year we seek to broaden the conference to include input from our international partners.
We seek submissions in each of the following four major areas. We plan to invite experts to highlight key technical gaps and frame the technical challenges in protecting each of the listed targets, and seek papers that help close those gaps, securing classes of targets and preventing attacks against society. We will select the best paper from each of these tracks, and we will also identify the best paper at the conference.
