13 July, British Library, London

The 5th International Crime Science Conference once again brings together senior security and crime reduction practitioners, policy-makers, technologists, and leading academics, all developing the latest techniques, technologies and strategies for increasing security and reducing crime. This conference builds on the success of previous years' events which have consistently attracted over 85% approval ratings from delegates.

This year the theme of the conference is 'Security at the Technology Frontier' and will focus on how technology is driving the future of crime reduction and security provision. It will examine the latest technologies being used to tackle some of our most pressing problems, ranging from terrorist attacks and drugs crime through to gang violence and cybercrime, and also how human factors and ethical considerations affect the development and implementation of such technologies.

Key sessions include:
Securing critical infrastructures, Cybersecurity, Robotics, autonomous systems and UAVs, Hi-tech forensics, Detecting terrorism, Tackling the drug trade through technology, and Using technology to improve policing.
