Call for Papers

Intelligence and Security Informatics (ISI) is concerned with the study of the development and use of advanced information technologies and systems for national, international, and societal security-related applications.  ISI 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.

ISI-KDD Challenge

In addition, we are also organizing the ISI-KDD Challenge, participants are challenged to “find the more radical and infectious threads, members, postings, ideas and ideologies” in a Dark Web Portal of several complete multi-year extremist forums. Participants of the workshop will be granted access to more than 1,000,000 messages and postings by these radical members.

Participants are free to develop novel computational techniques and algorithms, e.g., linguistic analysis, topic extraction, multilingual text parsing, sentiment analysis, social network analysis, time-series analysis, etc. for the challenge. Participants are requested to describe their methods and results in papers. A panel of terrorism study experts will help evaluate the validity and value of the computing results.
