About The Event

The government continues its strong commitment to protecting the Nation against the possible use of chemical and biological weapons. This commitment is supported by a healthy federal budget that funds advanced research and development of next-generation environmental systems and new classes of bio-chem detectors that can identify and analyze an increasing range of biological and chemical agents. The department and agencies that support and fund this critical R&D are engaging in close collaboration and partnership with hundreds of private companies and universities in developing cutting edge biological and chemical detection technologies. Where can you learn how to participate in the development of the next generation of detection technologies that will provide future decision makers with the tools they need to effectively detect and manage a bio-chem attack?

The 4th Federal Bio-Chem Detection R&D Opportunities event is designed to provide the most current, updated information about the role researchers and private companies can play in addressing the Nation's needs for new biological and chemical detection technologies. Again this year, the event will focus on the R&D requirements of each of the funding departments and agencies-with the goal of helping attendees make informed decisions about their opportunities to participate in this government-supported R&D. Representatives from the funding departments and agencies will provide answers to such questions as:

  • What are the government's biological and chemical detection technology R&D priorities?
  • What programs are being funded?
  • What are the opportunities for university and private company participation?
  • What is the process for pursuing these opportunities?
  • What are the arrangements for working with the government?

Each presentation will be followed by a question and answer session, providing attendees ample opportunity to ask the government representatives questions about the opportunities to collaborate with the government on the research and development of bio-chem detection technologies.

New This Year!
THE NETWORKING FAIR

Explore partnership and collaboration opportunities...
April 26-28, 2006

The Networking Fair is an excellent venue for representatives from government, detection technology companies, defense contractors, and universities to come together to search for opportunities to advance the creation of a robust bio-chem detection industry.

NEW THIS YEAR!
NETWORKING FAIR

For the first time, this year's event will feature the Bio-Chem Detection Networking Fair where interested representatives from government, detection technology companies, defense contractors, and universities can come together to explore opportunities for partnering and collaboration. The Fair is an excellent venue for the bio-chem detection community to come together to search for opportunities to advance the creation of a robust bio-chem detection industry.

The Fair will feature:

  • Government "help desks" where conference attendees can ask government representatives from bio-chem detection funding agencies questions about current opportunities to collaborate with the government on the development and production of bio-chem detection technologies.
  • Companies and universities from the bio-chem detection community sharing information and showcasing their capabilities.

Pre Conference Symposium
Biological-Chemical Detection Symposium

Emerging and Enabling Technologies For Biological and Chemical Detection

In its fourth year, this highly acclaimed symposium has become an important venue to hear about exciting science as well as cutting edge work in bio-chem detection technologies. The symposium is designed to provide researchers and technology companies a broad understanding of the current and future direction of biological and chemical identification technologies. It will explore the latest emerging and enabling technologies that are positioned to drive new advances. The symposium will feature nationally recognized detection and materials technology experts from government, academia, and industry who will provide answers to such questions as:

  • What are the important new emerging and enabling technologies in development and how will they drive the future of biological and chemical detection?
  • What are the most recent advances in these emerging and enabling technologies?
  • What are the opportunities and what are the challenges with these technologies?
  • What are the most promising research paths to move these technologies forward?
