ALERT Technology Showcase

ALERT Technology Showcase Information

ALERT is hosting a Technology Showcase on May 14th, 2019 at Northeastern University in Boston, MA. This event will feature presentations, posters, and technology demonstrations of ALERT research and tools. The objective of the Showcase is to demonstrate the impact and transition of ALERT’s work on Department of Homeland Security components such as the Transportation Security Administration and the U.S. Customs and Border Protection as well as its impact on the homeland security enterprise as a whole.

Intrinsic to this objective is a close collaboration with industry and government stakeholders. Each presentation, poster and demonstration will feature this collaboration in order to highlight the transition paths of the technologies. Attendees will have ample time throughout the day to interact with individual project leaders and collaborators to learn more about their results.

The ALERT Technology Showcase will be held in conjunction with the ADSA20 Workshop, which will be held May 15-16, 2019 at Northeastern University in Boston, MA.  For more information on ADSA20, please visit the ADSA20 event page!
