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.

Symposium Description

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 centres and universities.

The program will focus on:

  • Maritime security risk assessment, modelling, 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 modelling 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.
