Hosted by: MIT Lincoln Laboratory

The major objective of the MIT Lincoln Laboratory Advanced Research and Technology Symposium (ARTS) is to reach out to academics, students, and entrepreneurs on the MIT campus and in the New England area to encourage and enable the development of advanced technologies in support of national security. The symposium will highlight some of the most pressing challenges confronting our nation’s security and wellbeing, and how advanced technology can help to address these challenges. The goal of the symposium is to stimulate interaction and suggest opportunities to develop new technologies, many of which will have both commercial and defense applicability.

Sessions will focus on recent technology challenges and revolutionary work that is ongoing at MIT and MIT Lincoln Laboratory, in areas that will figure prominently in the future of national security:

  • Data-starved artificial intelligence
  • Smart super vehicles
  • The future of (secure) computation
  • Revolutions in biotechnology
  • Materials integration: from nanoscale to waferscale 

There will also be a poster session displaying other relevant and groundbreaking research projects and to provide the audience with the opportunity to interact firsthand with the session speakers and their colleagues. The final session will focus on ways to engage with the Lincoln Laboratory, MIT, and the US Government to develop research collaborations and other business opportunities.
