Concept. The Port of the Future ConferenceTM Research Showcase is an opportunity for researchers to present and discuss their research with conference attendees. Prominent scientists from Department of Homeland Security Centers of Excellence colleges, universities, Department of Homeland Security Centers of Excellence, and national laboratories and private corporations will present promising solutions and technological advances to current and anticipated challenges to international travel and trade, transportation and logistics, cybersecurity, environmental compliance, infrastructure resilience, and more.

Guest post-graduate scholars and scientists will display their research via 36-inch by 48-inch quad charts in assigned booths, allocated on a “first come, first served” basis. The researchers will stand by their booths to answer viewers’ questions and provide in-depth explanations of their research.

Centerstage. During the Research Showcase, participating researchers will be scheduled to give a 20-minute presentation in the Skyline Room of the Student Center, followed by a 10-minute Question and Answer session.
