Call For Papers

IEEE International Conference on Intelligence and Security Informatics
(ISI 2012)

June 11-14, 2012 Washington, DC, USA

THEME: Cyberspace, Border, and Immigration Securities

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, and the first
nine meetings were held in Tucson, AZ (twice); Atlanta, GA; San Diego,
CA; New Brunswick, NJ; Taipei, Taiwan; Dallas, TX; Vancouver, Canada;
and Beijing, China. 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.

ISI 2012 will be organized in four main streams focusing on
- Information Sharing and Data/Text Mining,
- Infrastructure Protection and Emergency Responses,
- Terrorism Informatics, and
- Enterprise Risk Management and Information Systems Security

Submissions may include systems, methodology, testbed, modeling,
evaluation, and policy papers. Research should be relevant to
informatics, organization, or public policy in applications of
counter-terrorism or protection of local/national/international/enterprise
security in the physical world or cyberspace. Topics include but are
not limited to:

In conjunction with ISI 2012, several workshops will be held on June
11, 2012. The currently committed ones include (1) the Border Security
Workshop, (2) the Immigration Studies Workshop, and (3) the
International Workshop on Social Computing (SoCo). Workshop proposals
are welcome.


- paper submission due date for ISI 2012: February 15, 2012
- Notification of acceptance: March 15, 2012
- The due date for Tutorial/ Workshop proposals: February 27, 2012


Submission file formats are PDF and Microsoft Word. Required
Word/LaTeX templates (IEEE two-column format) can be found at the
conference Web site. Long (6,000 words, 6 pages max.) and short (3000
words, 3 pages max.) papers in English must be submitted
electronically via the conference Web site. The accepted papers from
ISI 2012 and its affiliated workshops will be published by the IEEE
Press in a formal Proceedings. IEEE ISI Proceedings are
EI-indexed. Authors who wish to present a poster and/or demo may
submit a 1-page extended abstract, which, if selected, will appear in
Proceedings. The selected IEEE ISI 2012 best papers will be invited
for contribution to the new Springer Security Informatics journal.

Proposals for tutorials and special-topic workshops in any areas of
Intelligence and Security Informatics research and practice are
welcome. Such events will be an integral part of the ISI-2012
conference program. Proposals in PDF or Microsoft Word not exceeding 3
pages should be emailed to the conference organizing committee at by February 27, 2012 and contain the following
