US Army, US Navy, US Air Force, US Marines, US Department of Defense conference held at UH
Date:10/26/2007

HOUSTON, Oct. 26, 2007 From defusing bombs to treating post trauma, the U.S. armed forces face challenges on multiple fronts. The University of Houston will host a Department of Defense (DoD) research conference to address such issues Nov. 1 and 2 at the Hilton UH Hotel and Conference Center.

The purpose of the conference is to give attendees an opportunity to connect with DoD services and representatives, as well as showcase UH research expertise related to various aspects of defense. Multiple services and agencies within the DoD, a range of academic disciplines and key local industries will be represented at the conference.

Key agenda items spanning the two days include improved detection of and safe detonation of improvised-explosive devices, proper diagnosis and treatment of post-traumatic stress disorder, ways to improve training, emergency response, equipment diagnostics and maintenance, data storage and data transfer, sensors, face and target identification and detection, and personnel protection and well-being.

Registration and agenda information are available at https://orion.tlc2.uh.edu/dod/. The fee to register is $130, with members of the ROTC and UH faculty and staff receiving free admission.

Conference speakers were selected based upon the areas of expertise of UH researchers. For example, in the area of domestic security, topics include improved information security, data mining techniques, networks, foreign-language training and energy acquisition. For operations on the battlefield, speakers will discuss such vital areas as optics, sensors, imaging, materials and communication. Post-combat issues also will be addressed in response to the need for quality care for active-duty personnel and war veterans, including top-notch physical and mental-health assessments once soldiers return home.

Armed with state-of-the-art technologies, UH researche
