Call For Papers

Security subjects are becoming hugely important in the light of the development and deployment of new Homeland Defense solutions. Such solutions require the design of new computer systems and techniques allowing security procedures to be executed on many different planes, from system, communication and organization security to the security of the state and ensuring its defense capabilities. Advanced IT technologies based on intelligent algorithms that can analyze group behavior and interpret complex patterns or situations are increasingly frequently becoming the building blocks of the above solutions. In this context, it is worth noting research that combines security and defense aspects with achievements in designing advanced systems for the acquisition and sophisticated semantic analysis of complex image patterns and group behaviors. Such systems use cognitive models of semantic interpretation and can be applied to develop e.g. algorithms and protocols used for the security of computer systems themselves, but also to ensure the confidentiality and security of communication networks. They can also be employed to develop globally understood safe solutions connected with activities to strengthen national defense capability.

This special issue focuses on the challenges and solutions for Homeland Defense and Security (HDS). We believe that it will provide the latest issues and progress in the area of HDS while publishing high quality papers which are closely related to the various theories and practical applications in HDS.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Homeland Security and Information Processing
Personal Security and Biometric
Intelligent Robots and Unmanned Vehicles
Target and Pattern Recognition
Sensor and Data Analysis
