June 4-7, 2013, Seattle, WA, USA
THEME: Big Data, Emergent Threats and Decision-Making in Security Informatics
HOST: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory
Intelligence and Security Informatics (ISI) is an interdisciplinary research field involving researchers in information technologies, computer science, public policy, bioinformatics, and social and behavior studies as well as local, state, and federal law enforcement and intelligence experts, and information technology industry consultants and practitioners to support counterterrorism and homeland security missions of anticipation, interdiction, prevention, preparedness and response to terrorist acts. The annual IEEE International ISI Conference series was started in 2003. The ISI 2013 conference program will feature three main topic streams:
· Big Data in Security Informatics
· Emergent Threats
· Decision-Making in Security Informatics.
ISI 2013 will include a special session on Emergent Phenomena and Big Data sponsored by the Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Activity (IARPA). Other confirmed program activities include:
· Keynote Speakers:
o Dr. Joseph Kielman – Department of Homeland Security.
o Dr. CAPT Dylan Schmorrow / LT David Combs – US Office of the Secretary of Defense.
o Dr. William Burns – Decision Science Research Institute Inc.
o Evaluating Visualization in Support of Analytical Reasoning and Decision Making for Cybersecurity – Organizing institution: Innovative Analytics.
o Signature Discovery for Intelligence and Security – Organizing institution: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory.
o Social Media Analytics – Organizing institutions: Boeing; University of Arizona.
o Funding Opportunities in Intelligence and Security Informatics – Panelists: Various funding agency program managers.
o Open Source Intelligence and Predicting the News – Panelists: Jason Matheny (IARPA) and Established performers and PIs from IARPA’s Open Source Intelligence Program.
o Security and Information Assurance – Panelists: Dewey Houck (Boeing), Nick Multari (Pacific Northwest National Lab); Ken Neves (Los Alamos National Lab); Felix Wu (UC Davis)
