The ATP statute originated in the Omnibus Trade and Competitiveness Act of 1988 (Public Law 100-418, 15 U.S.C. 278n), and was amended by the American Technology Preeminence Act of 1991 (Public Law 102-245). This law has been codified at 15 U.S.C. 278n. The ATP implementing regulations are published at 15 CFR part 295, as amended. The ATP is a competitive cost-sharing program designed for the Federal government to work in partnership with industry, universities, and states to accelerate the development and broad dissemination of challenging, high-risk technologies that offer the potential for significant commercial payoffs and widespread benefits for the nation.

The Technology Conference title, “Are You Sure, It is Secure?” and “How to Secure Your Share of Federal Funding,” will consist of three Tracks. The Advanced Technology Program will host a robust track on Advanced Technology Development and Commercialization Opportunities. This track will focus on information about the over $1 billion of funding opportunities available for advanced technology research from Federal government agencies. Sessions will emphasize and highlight minority businesses' and universities' participation in these programs. Hampton University will host two tracks, the first “Cyber Crimes: An In-depth Understanding”, and the second, “Information Security and Assurance.”
