issues for crime analysis, intelligence monitoring, deception
detection, disaster prevention and management, and other topics.
Hosted by the University of Arizona and the Tucson Police
Department, the symposium provides a forum for discussions among
researchers, law enforcement and intelligence experts, and
industry consultants and practitioners. The symposium also
features keynote speakers from NSF, NIJ and the Intelligence
