Abstract : The events of September 11, 2001 moved the issues of anti- and counter-terrorism, national/public security, and collective emergency response (both crisis and consequence management) to the fore of concerns of many nations. Critical infrastructures, major events (e.g. Olympics), harbours and airports protection against terrorist attack are examples of kinds of complex situations typical of the post 9/11 new security paradigm. The military viewpoint alone is not sufficient to meet the increase in terrorist threat that is diverse and unpredictable; as such threat requires a consideration of collective security that expands to cooperation with multiple non-military organisations. This Symposium addresses key issues and concepts to help military organisations working together effectively with other civil authorities at all levels, National and International allies for the management of a Collective Response to a Crisis/Emergency. Topics covered are: decision-support, information management, human systems integration, knowledge management in crisis and emergency situations, distributed collaborative planning. The Symposium addresses a number of current NATO priorities, including NATO Rapid Response, and Defence against terrorism (DAT).
