Maritime Risk Symposium 2011: Symposium Description

Rutgers Command, Control, and Interoperability Center for Advanced
Data Analysis (CCICADA), Center for Advanced Infrastructure and
Transportation (CAIT), and Center for Discrete Mathematics and
Theoretical Computer Science (DIMACS) have partnered with the
U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) Area Commands to host the second symposium on
risk and economic assessment and risk management methodologies
applicable in the maritime domain.

The theme of the symposium is Developing Public-Private Partnerships
in Homeland Security: How Risk Impacts Government Policy and Business
Requirements.

The symposium will include expert panel discussions and presentations
by researchers, members of academia, and government from participating
DHS research centers and universities.

The program will focus on:

    Maritime security risk assessment, modeling, and analysis
    Algorithmic approaches to maritime security decision making
    Security risk policy making: government and industrial perspectives
    Impact of risk mitigation on business requirements
    International perspectives
    Analysis of threats, vulnerabilities, and consequences
    Port resilience; reopening ports after natural or man-made disasters
    Risk-based decision making
    Game theory applications
    Simulation modeling and applications to maritime risks

The last day in the symposium will be a research day. Researchers from
academia and labs will have a chance to present and discuss their
research findings.  

Symposium Goals:

Attendees will discuss and evaluate risk and economic consequence
assessment methodologies and tools, assessment results, and policy
implications and impacts within the maritime domain.  

****************************************************
Who Should Attend:

The symposium is an excellent platform for academic, industry, and
government partners to discuss joint approaches for risk and policy
issues together.
