Call For Papers
2018 European Intelligence and Security Informatics Conference (EISIC 2018)
The Premier European Conference on Counterterrorism and Criminology
October 23-25, 2018, Blekinge Institute of Technology, Karlskrona, Sweden
The European Intelligence and Security Informatics Conference â€“ EISIC â€“ is Europeâ€™s premier conference on intelligence and security informatics. EISIC 2018 will celebrate the 8th anniversary of this premier conference series.
EISIC is a multi-disciplinary conference where science and technology researchers and developers from areas such as engineering, computer science, psychology, human factors, criminology, crime science, law, privacy and ethics, join with law enforcement, security and defence analysts and investigators to advance our capabilities for fighting crime and ensuring the safety and security of our citizens.
EISIC 2018 will showcase the latest technologies to tackle such crimes as human trafficking, terrorism, online radicalisation, child sexual exploitation, money laundering, and the use of forged documents. Further, we will discuss why such crimes are becoming more difficult to address, and how criminal elements are using such technologies such the dark net and blockchain to perpetrate their crimes and cover their tracks. Such technologies present a significant challenges to law enforcement as crimes and their consequences span both the virtual and physical worlds. EISIC 2018 will report on and share potential solutions to these problems.
EISIC 2018 is interested in, but not limited to, the following topics:
The Crime Phenomenon and Problems such as:
Child sex exploitation and abuse
Online child sexual coercion and extortion

Papers and posters may be research-oriented, design-oriented or practice-oriented:
Full papers (6-8 pages)
Short papers describing work in progress (4 pages)
Posters â€“ work in progress; late-breaking work; Lab / Centre reports
Other proposals for participation are:
Panels (2-4 pages) â€“ inter- / multi-disciplinary debates on contemporary issues. Proposals should outline the topic of debate, and bios of speakers; panel format will be 90 minutes including, Q&A
Tutorials (2-4 pages) are skills training sessions, and can run for half day (0900 -1230 / 1330 â€“ 1700h or full day (0900 â€“ 1700h). Proposals should outline the topic of debate, and bios of instructors.
Workshops (2-4 pages) are intended for small groups to come together to discuss and outline new ideas or new approaches to problems. Multi-disciplinary workshops are encouraged. These may be half day (0900 -1230 / 1330 â€“ 1700h or full day (0900 â€“ 1700h). Proposals should outline the topic of debate, and the bios of organisers.
Doctoral Consortium (6 pages max.) â€“ these are intended for doctoral students who are studying and investigating various aspects of intelligence analysis, investigation, crime science, criminology, etc. They should generally be in the early stages of their study, so that their work may still benefit from feedback and comments from the DC.
Industry Session (1 page, 250â€“500 words) â€“ companies are invited to present their solutions in 15-20 minute presentations on products or services.
Exhibition - Industry and research organisations are invited to exhibit their products and services. A fee is charged for the rental of the exhibition booth. Contact sponsorship chair.
Sponsorship - we welcome sponsors to help support the conference. Sponsors may wish to support at one of a number of levels of sponsorship.
Student Volunteers are needed to support various conference tasks, e.g. bag stuffing, welcoming and reception desk, time-keeping during sessions, general support. Student volunteers will be managed by the SV Chair.
All submissions are to be in the IEEE conference paper format and of the respective lengths as indicated above. They are to be written in English and be submitted electronically via the conference web site. Submission file formats are PDF and Microsoft Word using the IEEE two-column Word/LaTeX templates that can be found at the IEEE web site. Accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings.
