IEEE Intelligence and Security Informatics (ISI) 2013

THEME: Big Data, Emergent Threats and Decision-Making in Security Informatics

Intelligence and Security Informatics (ISI) research is an interdisciplinary research field involving academic researchers in information technologies, computer science, public policy, bioinformatics, and social and behavior studies as well as local, state, and federal law enforcement and intelligence experts, and information technology industry consultants and practitioners to support counterterrorism and homeland security missions of anticipation, interdiction, prevention, preparedness and response to terrorist acts. The annual IEEE International ISI Conference series was started in 2003. Meetings have been held in Tucson, AZ (twice); Atlanta, GA; San Diego, CA; New Brunswick, NJ; Taipei, Taiwan; Dallas, TX; Vancouver, Canada; and Beijing, China, and Washington D.C. Proceedings of these ISI meetings and workshops have been published by the IEEE Press and in the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series.

In 2013, the main conference themes are: Big Data, Emergent Threats and Decision-Making in Security Informatics. ISI 2013 will be organized in three main streams focusing on

  • Big Data in Security Informatics
  • Emergent Threats
  • Decision-Making in Security Informatics

Please refer to Topics for a detailed list of areas of interest.

NEW: ISI 2013 will feature a Special session on Emergent Phenomena and Big Data sponsored by the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA). Paper submissions intended for this session should clearly state so by including the session title "Emerging Phenomena and Big Data" as a subtitle.
