The program includes opportunities for both oral and poster presentations.  Priority for oral presentations will be given to PIs who received awards in 2021, 2020 and 2022 (in that order), and only one oral presentation per funded project will be allowed.  Contributions that cannot be included in the oral program will be accepted for the poster program.

The conference is being held in person.  However, a live stream of the oral presentation will be available for those who register here.  Poster presentations will be in person only.

The workshop will be held in George Mason's Merten Hall, Room 1201 and 1202.  Coffee and snacks are provided during breaks, but lunch is not included in the registration. The GMU campus has several restaurants that are within an easy, short walk of Merten Hall where participants can have lunch during the event.


There is no official conference hotel.  Several hotels are within a five-mile radius of George Mason University.

About the workshop:  

The Algorithms for Threat Detection (ATD) program supports research projects that develop the next generation of mathematical and statistical algorithms for analysis of large spatiotemporal datasets with application to quantitative models of human dynamics. The program is a partnership between the Division of Mathematical Sciences (DMS) at the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA).
