This annual IEEE conference is considered one of the most important platforms for international academic researchers and industry professionals in information technologies, computer science, public policy, bioinformatics, medical informatics, and social and behavioral studies, as well as local, state, and federal law enforcement officials to report and exchange their latest research achievements to support counterterrorism and national/international security missions of anticipation, interdiction, prevention, preparedness and response to terrorist acts.

At the conference, Dr. Qu presented his research work titled “Improving the Security of the Distributed Enterprise Data Warehouse System.”  He also chaired a session titled “Information Sharing and Data/Text Mining” and participated in the first “Software Security and Protection” workshop.

During the conference, Dr. Qu interacted with many well-known international cyber/physical/social security experts, consultants and academic researchers, and had opportunities to introduce CTU’s security educational programs and security research projects to international colleagues.  Several international security experts and academic researchers accepted Dr. Qu’s invitations to come to visit CTU and give seminars to CTU’s graduate students in the future.
