Technology Summits
Share |

The IJIS Institute sponsors Technology Summits to focus on technology innovation, information sharing and safeguarding relative to a specific technology, issue, or domain.

Courts Industry Summit

The Courts Industry Summit, jointly hosted by the IJIS Institute and the National Center for State Courts (NCSC), provides an opportunity for Industry technology leaders to engage in a free flowing discussion with representatives from the NCSC, and the leaders of the Conference of State Court Administrators (COSCA), National Association for Court Management (NACM), and Court Information Technology Officer Consortium (CITOC.) The event is facilitated by the IJIS Institute‚Äôs Courts Advisory Committee with the objective of providing industry with insights on the technology needs of the courts likely to emerge over the next five years. 

Due to the ongoing concerns with the COVID-19 pandemic, and to ensure the safety of all event attendees, the IJIS Institute and the NCSC has decided to postpone the fourth annual Courts Industry Summit. We will continue to diligently monitor the situation and work to reschedule the event at a later date in 2021. Please stay tuned for more updates. 

Corrections Technology Leadership Forum

The Corrections Technology Leadership Forum brings together state corrections administrators, corrections CIOs, probation administrators and technologists, and a limited number of sponsoring industry representatives to engage in direct dialog about current information sharing initiatives and solutions on the horizon. corrections technology forum picture

The fourth occurrence of the IJIS Institute Corrections Technology Leadership Forum was held December 9 - 11, 2019, at the Hyatt Regency Tysons Corner Center, Tysons Corner, VA.

The event is held in partnership with the American Correctional Association (ACA), the Association of State Correctional Administrators (ASCA), the American Probation and Parole Association (APPA), the American Jail Association (AJA), and the Corrections Technology Association (CTA). 

Funding for this Leadership Forum is supported by sponsorship fees which cover the travel costs for practitioner attendees and associated meeting costs. Industry participation is available through sponsorships. The size of the event is intentionally limited in order to ensure there is ample opportunity for rich dialog and learning.

The 2017 Corrections Technology Leadership Forum was attended by correctional leaders and technologists from 15 state corrections agencies, five community corrections agencies, and five large jail systems. Partnering organizations included ASCA, AJA, ACA, APPA, and CTA.

Privacy Technology Summit

The IJIS Institute conducted a special Privacy Summit in conjunction with the 2018 National Symposium. The privacy issues discussed were related to biometrics, cell phones, facial recognition, and other innovative technologies and associated information. The Summit participants examined the use and exchange of personally identifiable information (PII) in the context of information systems and in the dissemination and aggregation of that data. More privacy summits are expected in the future.

Opioid Technology Summit

The Opioid Technology Summit occurred in 2017 and was hosted in conjunction with our partners the National Narcotics Officers Association (NNOA), the Police Foundation (PF), The Police Institute at Rutgers University, and the National Fusion Center Association (NFCA). The Summit provided an opportunity for top government practitioners and industry experts to work together in exploring the intersection of public safety and public health and how these diverse areas can come together to explore technology solutions addressing the opioid crisis. Attendees included government practitioners from across the country including Los Angeles (CA), New Mexico, Fairfax County (VA), Montgomery County (MD), New Hampshire, and Pennsylvania, just to name a few.
