Boston Police Chief to Address Boston Marathon Bombings at IEEE Homeland Security Conference in Waltham, Mass., on 12 November
Date:9/6/2013

WASHINGTON, Sept. 6, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Daniel P. Linskey, superintendent-in-chief of the Boston Police Department, will discuss "Lessons Learned from Boston Marathon Bombings" at the 2013 IEEE International Conference on Technologies for Homeland Security (HST '13) in November.

Linskey's talk will focus on the aftermath of the tragic events of 15 April 2013 and the response of his department and federal enforcement agencies that ultimately led to the capture of one of the suspects.

HST '13 will be held at the Westin Waltham Boston Hotel in Waltham, Mass., USA, 12-14 November 2013. It will bring together global science and technology thought leaders to foster homeland security technology innovation and showcase peer-reviewed technical papers highlighting emerging technologies in:

* Cyber Security
* Attack & Disaster Preparation, Recovery & Response
* Land & Maritime Border Security
* Biometrics & Forensics

Dr. Daniel M. Gerstein, Department of Homeland Security deputy undersecretary for science & technology; Donald Woodbury, technical director of the DHS Homeland Security Advanced Research Projects Agency; and Major Gen. L. Scott Rice, adjutant general of the Massachusetts National Guard, will join Linskey as featured speakers.

Gerstein recently discussed DHS innovation and partnerships with Colonel Mason on the Promise of Tomorrow radio show. http://bit.ly/164YSia

"Innovation is a two-sided proposition," Gerstein said. "We get to innovate, and that is good for people who are practicing security and defense. But [on] the other side, our adversary or potential adversary has the opportunity to use some of these technologies. So we have to be very cognizant of what that brings."

More than 300 people attended HST '12, including representatives from eight foreign countries. For more information, visit www.ieee-hst.org or contact Robert Alongi at information@ieee-hst.org or +1 781-245-5405.

The IEEE Homeland Security Conference is produced by IEEE with technical support from DHS S&T, IEEE Biometrics Council, IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society and IEEE-USA. MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Raytheon and MITRE are providing organizational support.
