Call for Papers

2011 European Intelligence and Security Informatics Conference (EISIC 2011)
The Premier European Conference on Counterterrorism and Criminology

September 12-14, 2011, Athens, Greece

The goal of EISIC 2011 is to gather people from previously disparate communities to provide a stimulating forum for exchange of ideas and results. We invite academic researchers (in information technologies, computer science, public policy, and social and behavioral studies), law enforcement and intelligence experts, as well as information technology companies, industry consultants and practitioners in the fields involved. EISIC 2011 will be held in Athens, Greece.

Submissions may include systems, methodology, testbeds, modeling, evaluation, policy, and position papers. Research should be relevant to informatics, organization, and/or public policy in applications of counterterrorism or protection of local/ national/ international/global security in the physical world and/or cyberspace.
