The International Carnahan Conference on Security Technology is by far the longest standing conference on security in the world. It has been held in venues all over the world, every year, since and including, 1967. We celebrated the 47th conference in Medellín, Colombia last year. Only a few of us on the Executive Committee have been associated with the Carnahan Conference since its inception. The background history of the conference is always set out in the first few pages of the proceedings so we give only a potted summary here. It all started in Lexington, Kentucky in the USA. The name 'Carnahan' comes from the Carnahan House, which was the University of Kentucky's conference centre. In 1967, President Lyndon Johnson launched his so called 'war on crime'.
