This workshop will explore the current and near term technologies and the power of collaboration, networking, and information sharing. We'll review the current research on the impact of these technologies on human behavior. Experts and practitioners will explore the implications of a networked world on the mission of responding to man-made and natural acts/events, and the ways in which homeland security and public safety professionals can exploit this technology.
