The science of Intelligence and Security Informatics (ISI) focuses on the development and use of advanced information technologies, including methodologies, models and algorithms, infrastructure, systems, and tools for national/international and homeland security related applications through an integrated technological, organizational, and policy based approach. ISI also encompasses the areas of terrorism research, intelligence analysis as well as security-related public policy.
The upcoming IEEE Intelligence and Security Informatics Conference (ISI 2006) will be held May 23-24, 2006, in San Diego, California, at the Doubletree Hotel San Diego Mission Valley.
The two previous symposia on ISI (ISI-2003, ISI-2004) were held in Tucson, Arizona; the third (ISI-2005) in Atlanta, Georgia. These meetings provided a stimulating intellectual forum for discussions among previously disparate communities: academic researchers (in information technologies, computer science, public policy, and social and behavioral studies), local, state, and federal law enforcement and intelligence experts, and information technology industry consultants and practitioners. Proceedings of these past ISI meetings were published in Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS).
ISI-2006 will continue this conference series under the sponsorship of the IEEE. It will be co-located with the 7th Annual National Conference on Digital Government Research.
