  • Cyberspace: defense, exploitation, and counter-attack
  • Decision Making
  • Economics and financial analysis
  • Emergency response
  • Human factors and usability issues related to semantic technologies
  • Information sharing
  • Infrastructure protection
  • Intelligence collection, analysis, and dissemination
  • Law and law enforcement
  • Planning: representation of and reasoning over plans and processes
  • Predictive analysis
  • Provenance, source credibility, and evidential pedigree
  • Resiliency, risk analysis, vulnerability assessment
  • Science and technology (biology,health,chemistry,engineering,etc.)
  • Sensor systems
  • Sociology (social networks, ethnicity, religion, culture, politics, etc.)
  • Spatial and temporal phenomena and reasoning
  • Uncertainty as it relates to ontologies and reasoning


Submissions of technical papers or extended abstracts are welcomed. Each submission will be evaluated for acceptability by at least three members of the Program Committee. Decisions about acceptance will be based on rele- vance to the above topic list, originality, potential significance, and clarity. Because all accepted papers are to be presented at the conference, we require that at least one of the submitting authors must be a registered participant committed to attending STIDS 2016. All accepted authors will be invited to participate in a poster and demo session to provide an opportu- nity for extended informal discussion. Submissions are accepted only in electronic format and must closely follow the US Letter version of the IEEE format for conference proceedings. For complete details and to download LATEX or MS Word templates, choose the US Letter size from the IEEE’s Manuscript Template webpage. Technical papers must have between six and eight pages, including figures. Extended abstracts must have between two and four pages. Submissions out- side these limits will not be reviewed. In addition, papers that, at the time of submission, are under review for or have already been published in or accepted for publication in a journal or another conference will not be accepted to the STIDS conference. Submissions for the general session must be unclassified and releasable in a public forum. They should be sent via the conference submission site. Details on submissions for the classified session will be posted on Intelink.
