Special Session on Federal Cybersecurity Research Priorities to Follow IEEE Homeland Security Conference

Networking and Information Technology Research and Development to present strategic directions of U.S. federal cybersecurity research at 2010 IEEE Homeland Security Conference.

WASHINGTON - The federal Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program will present the strategic directions of U.S. federal cybersecurity research immediately following the 2010 IEEE International Conference on Technologies for Homeland Security (HST 10) in November.

During this special session, senior U.S. government officials will describe R&D themes developed to orient federal cybersecurity research and to stimulate related private sector cybersecurity activities. The themes are: tailored trustworthy spaces, moving target, and cyber economics and incentives. The session will provide insights into those priorities and how they are shaping the direction of federal cybersecurity research. Speakers will come from the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.

The NITRD Program (www.nitrd.gov) coordinates the government's unclassified networking and information technology R&D investments. Agencies include those above and the Department of Homeland Security, NASA, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the National Institutes of Health and the National Security Agency, among others. These organizations work together to develop advanced federal networking and IT capabilities; U.S. science, engineering and technology leadership; and U.S. economic competitiveness.

HST 10, at the Westin Hotel in Waltham, Mass., USA, 8-10 November 2010, will bring together global science and technology thought leaders to foster homeland security technology innovation. It will showcase selected technical papers highlighting emerging technologies in four tracks: cybersecurity; land and maritime border security; counter-WMD techniques, and critical infrastructure and key resources physical security; and attack and disaster preparation, recovery and response.

An invitation-only track, featuring business development and user experience, will help invitees learn about business opportunities and user's needs and requirements.
