Call For Papers

European Intelligence & Security Informatics Conference (EISIC 2011)
Athens, Greece, September 12-14, 2011,

Call for Papers
Intelligence and Security Informatics (ISI) research is an interdisciplinary research field involving academic researchers in information technologies, computer science, public policy, bioinformatics, medical informatics, 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.

The goal of EISIC 2011 is to gather people from previously disparate communities to provide a stimulating forum for exchange of ideas and results. We invite academic researchers (in information technologies, computer science, public policy, and social and behavioral studies), law enforcement and intelligence experts, as well as information technology companies, industry consultants and practitioners in the fields involved. EISIC 2011 will be held in Athens, Greece.

Submissions may include systems, methodology, testbed, modeling, evaluation, policy, and position papers. Research should be relevant to informatics, organization, and/or public policy in applications of counter-terrorism or protection of local/ national/ international/ global security in the physical world and/or cyberspace. The accepted papers will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press (approval pending) in formal Proceedings.
EISIC 2011 will be organized in four main streams focusing on:

- Terrorism Informatics
- Information Sharing and Data/Text Mining
- Computational Criminology
- Infrastructure Protection and Emergency Responses
