A Specialists Meeting is a medium-sized (up to 100 participants) three-day event that aims at promoting exchange of state-of-the-art knowledge among an audience of experts and specialists on an important scientific or applied topic. Communications are via invited oral Keynote Addresses and via invited oral presentations. The program Committee is responsible for selecting and inviting the Speakers. Observers, who present no paper, can also participate. Specialists Meetings result in a STO report (Meeting Proceedings).



This Specialists’ Meeting is  up to NATO UNCLASSIFIED open to AUS,CHE,FIN,SWE


Topics to be covered:

While clear emphasis placed on military applications, the RSM will discuss latest civilian research results as well. Sensor-focused artificial intelligence covers methods such as deep multiple hypothesis analysis, distributed decision-making, machine / deep learning for extracting object, situation and mission features. Nevertheless, there are uniquely military aspects. Moreover, contributions are encouraged discussing methods for guaranteeing sensor data integrity and security-related aspects of Multisensor Fusion Engines. Besides methods inspired by classical Electronic Warfare issues, this comprises “malicious” sensors as well as navigation and cyber warfare. Since tomorrow’s military Multisensor Fusion Engines will be inherently adaptive to scenario and mission requirements and will exploit external knowledge bases massively, cognitive sensing belongs to the topics to be covered

The ubiquitous application and pervasive use of Information Communications Technologies (ICT) and emerging web sciences is being driven by the so far insatiable commercial demand for global computing, telecommunications and multi-media services. These developments have had a profound impact on both the commercial and military sectors to the point where the majority – if not all – critical functions, networks and systems depend on ICT. Military staffs rely on these infrastructures as well as specialised critical infrastructures and CIS (Communication and Information Systems) to support operations and deliver network enabled capabilities (NEC). The common point, and weakness, is the functional space that such ICT-based infrastructure and systems operate in. Any vulnerability in this cyber space – regardless of its size – can be exposed and exploited.

There is a worldwide lack of talent with respect to cyber security. This has become an issue facing national governments, and raises the question of how to reduce the shortage of cyber security experts and personnel.

Several NATO member states have issued national cyber security strategies identifying the need to spot and develop cyber defence talent and to boost cyber security education. However, current practice of engineering cyber systems as well as techniques and tools for cyber operations are extremely ad hoc and not guided by a coherent body of knowledge comparable to older fields of engineering.

The main objective of the proposed lecture series is to disseminate knowledge on Cyber Security Science, Cyber Security Architecture and Cyber Security Engineering among researchers and systems engineers in NATO’s member states. There are clear indications that such a series of lectures is timely and will be highly welcomed.

The General Information Package for this event will be available once your enrolment has been validated by the CSO.
