About the IEEE HST '15 Symposium

Boston Skyline

The 2015 IEEE Symposium on Technologies for Homeland Security (HST ’15), will be held 14 - 16 April in Greater Boston, Massachusetts. This symposium brings together innovators from leading academic, industry, business, Homeland Security Centers of Excellence, and government programs to provide a forum to discuss ideas, concepts, and experimental results.

The IEEE Symposium on Technologies for Homeland Security was formerly called The IEEE Conference on Technologies for Homeland Security. Please also make note of the change in date. The location remains the same.

Produced by IEEE with technical support from DHS S&T, IEEE Boston Section, IEEE Biometrics Council, and IEEE-USA and organizational support from MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Raytheon, Battelle, and MITRE, the event will once again showcase selected technical paper and posters highlighting emerging technologies in the areas of:

  • Cyber Security,
  • Attack and Disaster Preparation, Recovery, and Response,
  • Land and Maritime Border Security
  • Biometrics & Forensics.
