Following these talks, lunch will be served and students will present their research in a poster session. In addition there will be a celebration of ALERT with speakers from DHS and state government.

Day Two will be a workshop focused on Terahertz Wave Imaging and Spectroscopy. The workshop will focus on terahertz sensing for homeland security, defense, industrial, medical and other applications. It will feature invited talks by various top researchers in the field. The morning of the workshop will include the ribbon-cutting for the ALERT Center, which will be attended by high-level representatives from government and industry, including Admiral Jay Cohen, Department of Homeland Security Undersecretary for Science and Technology.
