We invite researchers and practitioners to join us at the European Intelligence and Security Informatics Conference 2019 (EISIC 2019) conference in Oulu, Finland

While the proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT) devices enabled by high-speed internet connections, ubiquitous computing, and Big Data infrastructure helps improve everyday life, it also provides a springboard for illicit networks and criminal entrepreneurs to scale-up to big crime. The conference brings together domain experts and technologists to better understand how new information technologies and infrastructures are changing the criminal landscape and explore how multi-stakeholder collaboration can help improve urban resilience.
