Homeland Security

Our Goal

The scientific and engineering communities have been called upon to help the world respond to physical and cyber security attacks to homeland security. The IEEE SMC Technical Committee on Homeland Security (TCHS) aims to promote research on resilience modeling, critical infrastructure protection, and security information management systems. Relevant technologies include cognitive and autonomous systems for monitoring and surveillance, cyber-physical and hybrid threat detection, emergency response, crisis management, and situation awareness, which are increasingly based on artificial intelligence and machine learning. The TCHS will also focus on ethical implications of technologies, therefore addressing aspects such as trustworthy artificial intelligence and issues related to autonomous weapons in the defence and military domains. To that aim, the TCHS will: – organize workshops, conferences, seminars, journal special issues and special sessions/tracks addressing security research in IEEE conferences; – interact with other professional societies to promote security related research; – collaborate with national and international funding agencies to develop security related research programs and engage in research projects; and – liase 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.


IEEE CSR conference focuses on theoretical and practical aspects of the security, privacy, trust, and resilience of networks, systems, and services as well as novel ways for dealing with their vulnerabilities and mitigating sophisticated cyber-attacks.
