2021 European Intelligence and Security Informatics Conference (EISIC 2021)
The Premier European Conference on Counterterrorism and Criminology

June 10-11, 2021, University of Oslo, Oslo, Norway

The European Intelligence and Security Informatics Conference (EISIC) is Europe's premier conference on Intelligence and Security Informatics. We are thrilled to announce that EISIC 2021 will celebrate the 10th anniversary of this premier conference series.

EISIC presents the best of current Intelligence and Security Informatics research and practice, emphasizing the development, use, and evaluation of advanced information technologies, including methodologies, models and algorithms, systems, and tools, for local, national and international security-related applications. The conference promotes multi-disciplinary collaborations between researchers and developers from areas such as engineering, computer science, psychology, criminology, crime science, law, privacy and ethics, jointly with law enforcement, security and defence analysts and investigators to improve our capabilities for fighting crime and ensure the safety, security and trust of our citizens.
