The third workshop on Advanced Developments Encompassing Processes and Technologies for Customs and Border Protection (CBP-ADEPT-03) was held virtually on November 16-17 from 11:00 AM – 2:00 PM ET* on both days. The workshop will address creating effective engagements with CBP.

*We originally set this event to end at 1:30 PM ET but due to our desire of including more speakers, we have extended both days to end at 2:00 PM ET.

This workshop is a spinoff of the ADSA workshops that have been held to address aviation security. The Department of Homeland Security, Customs and Border Protection (DHS-CBP) has funded a new series of workshops dedicated to CBP. The format of the workshop is designed to encourage discussion during presentations. The feedback received from the ADSA workshops indicates that the discussion is what differentiates workshops from other meetings and conferences.

The CBP-ADEPT workshops are convened by the Department of Homeland Security Emeritus Center of Excellence for Awareness and Localization of Explosives-Related Threats (ALERT) at Northeastern University. Note that the name of the workshop has been renamed to CBP-ADEPT from ADSA-CBP in order to reduce confusing the CBP and ADSA workshop series.

Presentations was given in the following areas:

  • CBP’s needs for enhanced technologies and processes and methods for informing CBP of emerging technologies
  • Methods to speed up engagement and deployment
  • Financial incentives for engagement
  • Stakeholder perspectives and issues

Speakers included:

  • DHS-CBP and other regulatory agencies discussing problems that need novel solutions
  • Vendors, Academia and National Labs discussing emerging technologies
