Workshop Details
Context and relevance:

Combating terrorism has occupied centre-stage across governments, security agencies, policy makers, academia, industry and society at large for obvious and understandable reasons. In the academic and industry circles, past decade has witnessed significant interest in security-related research in a wide range of applications spanning across national and international security, economic and societal security, and including personal and community security. Academic disciplines especially centered on Information Technologies such as information and computer sciences, information systems, human-computer studies, technology adoption, and policy studies have made rapid progress in developing and evaluating customized frameworks, methodologies, techniques, and systems to meet specific information processing and knowledge management challenges of “security” and “Intelligence”. An emerging field of cross-disciplinary study, called the Intelligence and Security Informatics (ISI), encompassing these efforts through an integrated technological, organizational, and policy-based approach has evolved. This multidiscipline is shaped by research and applications in fields from data/text/web mining to knowledge management to cognitive science to social psychology. The emergent field also has spawned professional societies and conferences, to build a professional community -

This emergent field has good prospects for and demands best of the young minds to expand and strengthen the domain and help contribute to the end goal of Secure and Smart society. The Workshop would help achieve this goal.

The Workshop on ISI 2010 will provide a learning platform for students and professionals, who focus on ISI research. We believe that this workshop will enrich the understanding of the emerging domain of ISI.

The Workshop will have three Tutorials:
