Our Goal

The scientific and engineering communities have been called upon to help the world respond to security challenges after September 11, 2001. The IEEE SMC Technical Committee on Homeland Security (TCHS) aims to promote and guide information systems, algorithm, and database research of relevance to international and national security. The TCHS will:

  1. organize special paper sessions relating to international/national security research in IEEE conferences;
  2. conduct annual TCHS meetings during annual IEEE SMC conferences;
  3. collaborate with other professional societies to promote security related research;
  4. collaborate with federal funding agencies (e.g., NSF, DHS, NIJ, ITIC, NIH, etc.) to develop international/national security related research programs and engage in research projects; and
  5. collaborate with government agencies, industrial partners, and local and national media in sponsoring and organizing international/national security related meetings, engaging in policy discussions, and facilitating training, education, and outreach programs.
