The 16th IEEE International Conference on Intelligence and Security
Informatics (ISI) November 9-11, 2018, Miami, Florida, USA

Paper Submission DUE: July 20, 2018

Intelligence and Security Informatics (ISI) research is an
interdisciplinary research field involving academic researchers in
information technologies, computer science, public policy,
bioinformatics, computational social science, social computing,
medical informatics, and social and behavioural 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's missions of
anticipation, interdiction, prevention, preparedness and response to
terrorist acts.

The annual IEEE International Conference on ISI (IEEE ISI) was started
in 2003 in Tucson, Arizona. Since then, the conference has been hosted
in Atlanta, San Diego, New Brunswick, Taipei, Dallas, Vancouver,
Beijing, Seattle, Washington DC, the Hague, Baltimore, Tucson, and
Beijing. Over the past 15 years, the IEEE ISI Conference has evolved
from its traditional orientation of intelligence and security domain
towards a more integrated alignment of multiple domains, including
technology, humans, organization, and security. The scientific
community has increasingly recognized the need to address intelligence
and security threats by understanding the interrelationships between
these different components, and by integrating recent advances from
different domains. This year, the IEEE ISI conference will be held in
Miami, Florida, USA.


We invite academic researchers in the field of Intelligence and
Security Informatics and related areas as well as law enforcement and
intelligence experts, and industry consultants and practitioners in
the field to submit papers and workshop proposals.

ISI 2018 Submissions may include systems, methodology, test-bed,
modelling, evaluation, and policy papers.  Research should be relevant
to informatics, organization, public policy, or human behaviour in
applications of counter-terrorism or protection of local/ national/
international security in the physical world and/or cyberspace.
