W01: Pacific Asia Workshop on Intelligence and Security Informatics (PAISI'13)
Organizers: Michael Chau, Alan Wang, Xiaolong Zheng, and Hsinchun Chen
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 was started in 2003. In 2006, the Workshop on ISI for the Pacific Asia region was started in Singapore. PAISI workshops were then held as a standalone workshop or in conjunction with international conferences such as PAKDD or IEEE ISI every year from 2007 to 2012 in Chengdu, Taipei, Bangkok, Hyderabad, Beijing, and Kuala Lumpur, respectively. Details of the past workshops can be found at: http://www.business.hku.hk/paisi/. The past successful workshops had drawn 40-100 participants on average and the workshop proceedings were published by the Springer LNCS series every year. These past ISI conferences 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. PAISI 2013 will provide a stimulating forum for IJCAI participants who focus on ISI research to exchange ideas and report research progress. We believe it will also attract the attendants of previous PAISI to be more actively involved in the IJCAI 2013 program.
