Rapid detection and identification of biological and chemical agents represent one of the major challenges today. The presence of environmental chemical and biological pollutants, arising from industrial and research facilities, may prohibit the use of some techniques that are used for the detection and identification of Chemical Warfare and Biological Warfare Agents. This session examines the latest techniques that can be employed to detect and identify both civilian and military materials.

Particularly, the session is aimed at bringing together researchers and experts in the following fields:

  • CBRNE Detection and Identification Techniques and Methods
  • Stand-on and Stand-off Detection and Identification Technologies
  • Experimental and Applied Physics for CBRNE Detection and Identifications
  • Engineering Applications for CBRNE Detection and Identifications
  • Technical Challenges on CBRNE
  • Explosive Detectors
  • Field Sampling & Analysis
  • Physics Applied to Safety and Security Issues
