Hosted by the Australian Government's National Security Science and Technology Centre (NSSTC), this international conference will focus on the S&T requirements of the Australian border protection, law enforcement, intelligence and policy agencies and the police force first responders of the Australian and New Zealand Counter Terrorism Committee.
The NSSTC has responsibility to coordinate Australia's whole-of-government requirements for national security S&T and to foster international research collaboration, particularly through its partnerships with the Combating Terrorism Technical Support Office (CTTSO) and the Department of Homeland Security in the US, Defence Research and Development Canada and the Home Office in the UK.
The Science and Technology Innovation for Civil and National Security Conference will address a range of national and civil security S&T domains. NSSTC's six national security S&T "priority areas" are cyber security, intelligence exploitation, border security and identity management, investigative support and forensics, preparedness protection prevention and incident response, and technology foresighting.
The Science and Technology Innovation for Civil and National Security Conference will attract a broad audience of security professionals and practitioners, technologists, scientists, researchers, policy makers, officials and executives from national and state departments, agencies, commissions, services and first responders, as well as academia, research agencies and industry
Free of charge to attend, the Science and Technology Innovation for Civil and National Security Conference is open to accredited registered professional visitors to CIVSEC 2018. (Places are limited and pre-registration is recommended with pre-registration being available from February 2018.)
INTERNATIONAL STRATEGIC FORUM
The International Strategic Forum will commence with an international panel session hosted by the Australian Government’s National Security Science and Technology Centre. The panel comprises interlocutors from Canada, United Kingdom, United States of America, New Zealand and Australia. The panel discussion will focus on multilateral strategies to harness, share and develop innovations to address borderless national security challenges building on keynotes presented on the previous day. One such strategy is a proposed Five Nation R&D Initiative which seeks to create new opportunities to deliver more efficient and cost-effective access to results, expand research, development, testing, and evaluation capacity, and offset limitations in a constrained and fluctuating budget environment.
