Call For Papers

The 2023 IEEE International Conference in Intelligence and Security Informatics (ISI 2023)

October 2 – 3, 2023, Charlotte, North Carolina, USA

Intelligence and security informatics (ISI) is an interdisciplinary field involving academic researchers in information technology, social and behavioral sciences, computer science, law, and public policy, as well as industry consultants, practitioners, security managers, and chief information security officers who support physical and cyber security missions at the individual, organizational, national, and international levels. Over the past two decades, the IEEE ISI Conference has evolved from its traditional orientation towards the intelligence and security domain to a more integrated alignment of multiple domains, including technology, humans, organizations, and security, aiming to advance our understanding of the interrelationships between these different components, and by integrating recent advances from different domains.

The ISI 2023 conference invites academic researchers in the field of ISI and related areas, as well as IT, security, and analytics professionals, intelligence experts, and industry consultants and practitioners in the field, to submit papers and workshop proposals. Research should be relevant to informatics, organizations, public policy, or human behavior in applications of security or protection of local/national/international security in the physical world, cyber-physical systems, and/or cyberspace.

Submission Guidelines

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. Each manuscript must clearly articulate their data (e.g., key metadata, statistical properties, etc.), analytical procedures (e.g., representations, algorithm details, etc.), and evaluation set up and results (e.g., performance metrics, statistical tests, case studies, etc.). Making data, code, and processes publicly available to facilitate scientific reproducibility is not required, but is strongly encouraged.

We accept three types of paper submissions on proposed tracks and related topics: long paper (maximum of 6 pages), short paper (maximum of 3 pages), and poster (1 page). The submission format is PDF that follows IEEE publication format (see the template at IEEE – Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings). Papers will be submitted through the EasyChair submission and review system. Each accepted paper must be presented at the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper must register the conference as an IEEE member before the early registration deadline. Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements.

Journal Special Issue

A number of papers selected from IEEE ISI 2023 will be invited for extension and submission to a special issue on Cybersecurity of ACM Transactions on Management Information Systems.
