TAKEDOWN 2017 - The 1st International Workshop on Security Solutions against Organized Crime and Terrorist Networks

July 6th, 2017 - Technische Universität Darmstadt (Darmstadt, Germany)

Description

Organized crime (OC) and terrorist networks (TN) are major threats for the European Union and its population. On the one hand, the number and value of assets confiscated from organized crime are more and more increasing in Europe, which indicates its rise in Europe and its challenge of the legal economy or tax base of many nation states. On the other hand, Europe is facing an increasing number of individuals, who are recruited as foreign fighters or for terrorist attacks within Europe. In addition, the direct implications, an atmosphere of fear is created. Additionally, the economic costs for prevention and fighting OC and TN are increasing. This is particularly relevant in times of austerity measures, when the reduction of integration programs and support of marginalized groups is increasing the boundaries between the milieus. Even in allegedly “egalitarian” societies, the entrenchment within societies is increasing and producing classes of “left-behinds” with no chance for upwards social mobility. And it is often young people with no future perspectives, who are at risk of becoming engaged in criminal organizations or in terrorist networks. It is the combination of these challenges and respective policies, which are ultimately challenging social cohesion in Europe. Towards such field is devoted TAKEDOWN, a European Research project, where 18 European partners (ranging from Academy, Industry and Law Enforcement Agency) aims to analyse and get a deeper knowledge on OC and TN, in order to advance the State-of-the-art and providing more effective digital and non-digital solutions for first line practitioners, law enforcement agencies and policy makers.

Aim of the Workshop

The workshop aims at (i) bringing together Experts, Solution Providers and Professionals, in different fields of Security; (ii) promoting/disseminating existing tools in terms of digital and non-digital solutions (ranging from models, methods, methodologies, approaches, technologies and services) and discussing their possible involvement against OC and TN; as well as (iii) discussing and evaluating their societal and ethical impact and related issues.

The workshop is concerned with, but not limited to, the following themes:

  • Malicious behaviour detection / rule-based detection
  • Data Analytics / Anti-money laundering
  • Boarder security, Video surveillance
  • Monitoring / Tracking System
  • Semantic technologies, Smart Data
  • Face/Speech recognition systems 
  • Prevention approaches
  • Data protection
  • Dark-net Analysis 
  • Terrorism Emergency Management Systems
  • Cybercrime Internet Forensics
  • White collar terrorism
  • New regulatory and governance models
  • On-line radicalization and extremism
  • Human trafficking / Smuggling of narcotics and firearms across borders
  • Gang Criminality / Syndicate Crime / Racketeering
  • and so on.
