Join the ISST Director, Professor Chris Hankin, in a panel discussion.

Registrations are now open for the event, which offers researchers the opportunity to network in a cross disciplinary, cross institutional environment, and hear from leaders in the fields of cyber security, crime science, intelligence, web and computing science, and more, around sharing data in their area of work.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Prof. Charlotte Roueché on Cultural Heritage Data in Warfare (King’s)
  • Prof. Kate Bowers on The Role of Innovative Data in Advancing Crime Science (UCL/Jill Dando Inst.)
  • Prof. Thomas Rid, Professor in the Department of War Studies (King’s)
  • Prof. Robert Stewart, Professor of Psychiatric Epidemiology & Clinical Informatics (King’s)
  • Chris Hankin, Director of the Institute for Security Science and Technology as Panel Chair (Imperial).


Cyber security, open source intelligence, web science, bioinformatics and crime science…all modern and relevant terms in the UK research landscape, and all with one thing in common: Data. Why are researchers interested in accessing publicly available data? What are they doing with anonymised, confidential data? How can open data provide us with intelligence? How can data from one field of research be used in another?

 Hear from some of the UK’s leading researchers speaking about data and security and get the opportunity to join a discussion amongst peers and mentors.
