The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA), executing the Joint Science and Technology Office (JSTO) function within the Chemical and Biological Defense Program (CBDP), will host the 2010 Chemical and Biological Defense Science and Technology (CBD S&T) Conference. It will be held November 15-19, 2010, at the Hilton Orlando in Orlando, Florida.
Accelerating Science for the Warfighter and Beyond
This will be the second time that the latest developments of the Medical and Physical Science disciplines of chemical and biological defense for the warfighter will be showcased simultaneously. This premier conference will combine and build upon events and applications from the 2007 BioDefense Research Conference in Philadelphia, the 2008 CBD Physical S&T conference in New Orleans, and the 2009 CBD S&T Conference in Dallas, Texas.
The purpose of this conference is to identify and examine the best new and dynamic developments in areas of basic and applied research within the chemical and biological defense landscape. The conference will create an opportunity for interaction and collaboration between chemical and biological scientific areas such as:
• Agent understanding
• Medical counter-measures
• Detection and diagnostic technologies
• Novel modeling and simulation
• Protective technologies
These and additional topics will be addressed through hundreds of combined keynote, oral, and poster presentations. Outstanding members of the chemical and biological research community will be recognized with awards based on the quality of the individual research and presentations submitted to the conference.
