In response to the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, many governments and citizens across the world have been mobilized at an unprecedented scale to contribute to national/international and societal security. The scientific and engineering research communities are no exception and have been called upon to play an important role in this effort. With such background, Intelligence and Security Informatics (ISI) has emerged since 2003 as a fast growing multidisciplinary field of study aimed at developing advanced information technologies, systems, algorithms, and databases for national- and homeland security-related applications, through an integrated technological, organizational, and policy-based approach [1-3].
