The Second International Security Conference

Countering New Chemical, Biological, Nuclear, and Cyber-Terrorist
- History, Current Scenarios and Future Threats -

in Berlin, Germany
in October/November 2004

Current terrorist threats are no longer limited to attacks primarily
political in nature but deliberately employ massive disruption and aim
to maximize casualties. Effectively countering CBRNC threats is
therefore becoming a primary concern at all levels of government and
defense sectors and must also be addressed by commercial entities.

The conference is intended as a forum for the discussion of emerging
issues in all areas related to the counterterrorism and prevention. It
will bring together scientists, engineers, defense, intelligence, and
policy experts from academia, industry, and government. Multiple tracks
will be available for reporting and discussing results from individual
areas of specialization together with plenary sessions.

This is the second International Security Conference, the inaugural
conference was held at the Heinrich Heine University, Düsseldorf,
Germany and co-organized by the German Federal Academy for Security
Policy (Bonn and Berlin).

It must be assumed that terrorist groups as well as rogue state actors
either have or can gain access to chemical, biological, radiological,
nuclear, and cyber (CBRNC) technology to perpetrate attacks on both
military and particularly civilian targets. Such attacks can also
deliberately target critical infrastructures both in the physical and
cyber domain to amplify both damages and disruptive effects.

It is therefore imperative to find approaches for countering such
threats in an international and interdisciplinary context bringing
together experts from the sciences, economics, defense, and politics.
The complex  and interrelated security challenges of international
terrorism need complex solutions. To reach this goal the conference will
be subdivided in to three different tracks with topics including but not
limited to:

Track A: The History
? Sources, origins, and causes of terrorism and how does terrorism
? Identifying differences between modern and post-modern/apocalyptic
? Characteristics of modern and post-modern terrorists movements?

Track B: The Threat
? Expected development of relevant terrorists and terrorist
? Expected development of terrorist use of CBRNC technologies
? Nature, types and extent of Islamic radical terrorist organizations,
global Jihadist groupings
? The experience and prevention of terrorism
? Psychological analyses and profiles of the terrorist actors, analysis
of the motivations
and capabilities of terror organizations to use CBRNC weapons
? Chemical/Biological/Radiological/Nuclear/Cyber-Terrorism
? Protective measures against CBRNC terrorism
? Current offensive and defensive activities (national/international)
? The role of the media and communication technologies
? Emerging threats

Track C:  Counter-Terrorism Measures
? Countering terrorism through information technology (including
biometrics, database processing, event detection, information management
and filtering, predictive modeling, visualization, information analysis
tools for effective multi-agency information-sharing efforts)
? The role of intelligence agencies
? Localized protection efforts for institutions, municipalities,
? Technical, political, and interdisciplinary solutions
? Legislative and law enforcement approaches
