Call for Papers
 IEEE International Conference on Intelligence and Security Informatics (ISI) 2016

**  Conference Theme: Cybersecurity and Big Data **

27--30 September 2016
Tucson, AZ, USA


  * Deadline for paper submission: May 16, 2016
  * Deadline for workshop proposals: May 16, 2016
  * Notification of acceptance: July 1, 2016
  * Camera ready copies: July 10, 2016
  * Conference: September 27-30, 2016


Intelligence and Security Informatics (ISI) research is an
interdisciplinary research field involving academic researchers
in information technologies, computer science, public policy,bio-
informatics, medical informatics, and social and behavior studies;
local, state, and federal law enforcement and intelligence experts;
and information technology industry consultants and practitioners. 
ISI supports counterterrorism and homeland security's missions of
anticipation, prevention, preparedness and response to terrorist 
acts and other security events, in physical, cyber, enterprise, and
societal spaces. In addition, safeguarding privacy and keeping data
secure over the long-term is especially important to many sectors,
including but not limited to medicine, banking, commerce, and 

The annual IEEE International Conference Series on ISI was started in
2003 in Tucson, Arizona. Since then, the conference has been hosted in
Atlanta, San Diego, New Brunswick, Taipei, Dallas, Vancouver, Beijing,
Seattle, Washington DC, the Hague, and Baltimore. Over the past
thirteen years, the IEEE ISI Conference has evolved and now integrates
multiple domains, including technology, humans, organization, and security. 
IEEE ISI 2016 will return to the birthplace of this conference series,
Tucson, Arizona. The conference theme will be Cybersecurity and Big Data.
In addition to the main academic conference, multiple satellite events 
centered around the cybersecurity theme will be organized as well.

We invite academic researchers in the field of Intelligence and
Security Informatics and related areas as well as law enforcement and
intelligence experts, and industry consultants and practitioners in
the fields to submit papers and workshop proposals.

ISI 2016 will be organized in four main tracks focusing on:
  * Cybersecurity Analytics and Threat Intelligence
  * Data Science and Analytics in Security Informatics 
  * Human Behavior and Factors in the Security Applications 
  * Organizational, National, and International Issues in
    Counter-terrorism and other Security Applications

Submissions may include systems, methodology, test-bed, modeling,
evaluation, and policy papers. Research should be relevant to
informatics, organization, public policy, or human behavior in
applications of counter-terrorism or protection of local/ national/
international security in the physical world or cyberspace.  See
specific topic suggestions below.


We accept three types of paper submissions on the topics of the
proposed tracks and related topics: long paper (max. six pages), short
paper (max. three pages), and poster (one page). Submission format is
PDF.  See more information on the CFP page at

The accepted papers from ISI 2016 and its affiliated workshops will be
published by the IEEE Press in formal Proceedings. IEEE ISI
Proceedings are EI-indexed.


Proposals in PDF or Microsoft Word not exceeding three pages should be
emailed to the conference organizing committee at
