NATO Advanced Research Workshops (ARW) provide forums for advanced level,
intensive discussions between qualified experts from different countries and research sectors.
The aim of the workshop is to provide an inspiring intellectual forum
for discussions among experts from different disciplines:
academic researchers (from computer science, information technology,
public policy and behavioral studies),
intelligence experts and industry practitioners.
The workshop will include lectures and panels to discuss new concepts,
new technologies, and new practices developed in terrorism informatics
through comprehensive review of recent work and detailed case studies,
all focused to broaden understanding and knowledge in these new research topics.
The workshop would highlight trends, achievements and also failures,
in Web-related terrorism research, methodological challenges in working on terrorism,
challenges in retrieving and sharing terrorism information resources, and root causes
of terrorism and the implications for terrorism informatics.
The workshop will be an unusual gathering bringing together people
whose expertise is in Social Science and Law, with those whose expertise is in Computer Science and Technology.
The results of discussion will be published and will hopefully have a significant
impact on policy in all of the NATO countries.
