The Proceedings describe the content and context of the workshop, which was co-hosted by the University of Texas, San Antonio, East Carolina University, and the Homeland Security and Defense Education Consortium of the U.S. Northern Command. Three panels, comprised of academics, military, public service and government personnel, tackled issues ranging from pandemic flu, to natural disasters, to terrorism. Panelists discussed the issues and offered suggestions on how governments, the military, and the private sectors in Canada, Mexico, and the United States can work together to tackle these homeland security challenges."
