Workshop on Intelligence & Security Informatics @ ISiM
ISiM is organizing a workshop on Intelligence and Security Informatics (ISI) on the 17th, 18th and 19th of June, 2010. Dr. Hsinchun Chen (Professor & IEEE Fellow from the Eller School of MIS, University of Arizona), Dr. Michael Chau (Assistant Professor at the University of Hong Kong), and Dr. R. N. Prasad (Senior Lead Principal, Education & Research, Infosys Technologies Ltd., Mysore) and his team, will be conducting the workshop.
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.
