Introduction: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 was started in Singapore in conjunction with PAKDD, with most contributors and participants from the Pacific Asian region. Since then, PAISI was held annually in Chengdu (2007), Taipei (2008), Bangkok (2009), Hyderabad (2010), and Beijing (2011). This year, PAISI 2012 will once again be held in conjunction with PAKDD and will provide a stimulating forum for ISI researchers in Pacific Asia and other regions of the world to exchange ideas and report research progress.

The past PAISI workshops have brought together academic researchers, law enforcement and intelligence experts, information technology consultant and practitioners to discuss their research and practice related to various ISI topics including:

I. Information Sharing and Data/Text Mining

• Intelligence-related knowledge discovery
• Criminal data mining and network analysis
• Criminal/intelligence information sharing and visualization
• Web-based intelligence monitoring and analysis
• Spatio-temporal data analysis/GIS for crime analysis and security informatics
• Cyber-crime detection and analysis
• Authorship analysis and identification
• Privacy and civil liberties issues
• Text processing and mining for Pacific Asian languages

II. Infrastructure Protection and Emergency Responses

• Public/animal health and bioterrorism information infrastructure
• Transportation and communication infrastructure protection
• Cyber-infrastructure design and protection
• Intrusion detection
• Border/transportation safety
• Emergency response and management
• Disaster prevention, detection, and management
• Communication and decision support for search and rescue

III. Terrorism Informatics

• Terrorism related analytical methodologies and software tools
• Terrorism knowledge portals and databases
• Social network analysis (radicalization, recruitment, conducting operations), visualization, and simulation
• Forecasting terrorism
• Countering terrorism
• Measuring the impact of terrorism on society

IV. Enterprise Risk Management and Information Systems Security

• Information systems security policies
• Behavior issues in information systems security
• Fraud detection
• Corporate going concerns and risks
• Accounting and IT auditing
• Corporate governance and monitoring
• Board activism and influence
• Corporate sentiment surveillance
• Market influence analytics and media intelligence
• Consumer-generated media and social media analytics

PAISI 2012 will provide a stimulating forum for researchers 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 PAKDD 2012 program.
