The IEEE World Forum on Public Safety Technology (WF-PST) is the flagship conference of the IEEE Public Safety Technology (PST) Initiative under Future Directions.

The purpose of the IEEE Public Safety Technology Initiative is to become the global Center of Excellence for public safety agencies, suppliers, practitioners, researchers, and all industry participants to discuss and exchange ideas on how emerging technologies can help public safety personnel be more effective in their work and support their sustained health and wellness. A Center of Excellence is a team, a shared facility or an entity that provides leadership, best practices, research, support and/or training for a focus area*.

The IEEE Public Safety Technology Initiative seeks the following goals:

  • Investigate, identify, and prioritize opportunities for existing relevant technologies for solving real-world challenges that public safety agencies are/will be facing
  • Research new technologies for filling the gaps in public safety applications
  • Launch and lead sustainable activities, products, and services to establish the use of technologies by public safety entities, and generate new revenue streams
  • Engage, interact and collaborate, where appropriate, with public safety associations, industry consortia, academic and government entities

The 2024 IEEE World Forum on Public Safety Technology (WF-PST) seeks to foster engagement and dialog among researchers, practitioners, and all industry stakeholders on addressing current and future needs, and improving current and emerging technologies for public safety applications.
