IEEE ICDM Workshop on Intelligence and Security Informatics 2015

Held on November 13, 2015 in conjunction with ICDM 2015, in Atlantic City, NJ, USA, Nov. 14-17, 2015. Workshop URL: http://cci.drexel.edu/ISI/ISI-ICDM2015/

This workshop was for attendees interested in participating in ISI-related research, especially with a strong data mining and knowledge discovery focus. Sample topics included in the ISI-KDD Workshop were:

  • Informing sharing and data/text/web mining
  • Infrastructure protection and emergency responses
  • Terrorism informatics
  • Enterprise risk management and information systems security

In the ISI-KDD Challenge, participants were challenged to “find the more radical and infectious threads, members, postings, ideas and ideologies” in a Dark Web Portal of several complete multi-year extremist forums. The Challenge was supported in part through ongoing work by the University of Arizona’s Artificial Intelligence Lab (Director: Hsinchun Chen, Ph.D.) funded by the award for the Data Infrastructure Building Blocks (DIBBs) project from the National Science Foundation (ACI-1443019).

Workshop organizers include: Chris Yang (Drexel), Hsinchun Chen (U. Arizona), Bhavani Thuraisingham (UT-Dallas), and Xuning Tang (Deloitte).

Previous Events

Intelligence and Security Informatics (ISI) is concerned with the study of the development and use of advanced information technologies and systems for national, international, and societal security-related applications. The annual IEEE International Conference series on ISI (with 200+ attendees) was started in 2003, and will be held September 28-30, 2016 in Tucson, Arizona (USA); see the IEEE ISI 2016 website below for more information. In addition, the European ISI Conference (with 150+ attendants) and the Pacific Asia Workshop on ISI (with 80+ attendees) was started in 2006. These ISI events have brought together academic researchers, law enforcement and intelligence experts, information technology consultants and practitioners to discuss their research and practice related to various ISI topics.


The 2016 IEEE International Conference on Intelligence and Security Informatics (ISI-2016) theme was Cybersecurity and Big Data and took place in Tucson, Arizona (USA), September 28-30th. 


IEEE-ISI, Beijing (China), July 22-24
