The flagship annual gathering of the international counter-terrorism community will be hosted for the ninth time by the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism (ICT) in Herzliya, Israel, on September 7-10, 2009.
More than 1,100 top decision-makers, defense, intelligence and police officials, prominent academic scholars and security industry leaders from 53 countries took part in last year’s conference. Hundreds of new participants from around the globe are expected to join them this year for three intensive days of professional lectures, workshops and discussions, scheduled to coincide with, and commemorate, the terror attacks of September 11, 2001.
At the ICT conference counter-terrorism experts, security professionals and leading academic scholars from around the world are able to network, establish essential cooperation mechanisms and exchange views on best practices.
Participants in the conference have the chance to broaden their understanding from an interdisciplinary viewpoint and learn from fellow government agencies, research institutes and industries about real-world challenges posed by modern and post-modern terrorist organizations.
