“Built Infrastructure Security” is the topic of a workshop cosponsored by George Mason’s Civil, Environmental, and Infrastructure Engineering Department in the School of Information Technology and Engineering and the Critical Infrastructure Protection Project in the School of Law. The event takes place tomorrow from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at the School of Law, Arlington I. The university community is invited to attend.

The workshop will focus on innovative technologies that address—and potentially mitigate—new terrorist threats. The agenda includes two parallel tracks:

  • Built infrastructure security—proactive coevolutionary approaches

  • Transportation infrastructure security—innovative technology for vehicle, operator, and cargo identification

In addition, the workshop will include presentations by senior researchers and practicing engineers; panel discussions; and demonstrations of several prototypical computer tools.
