Advanced Study Institute 2011
Prediction and Recognition of Piracy Efforts
Using Collaborative Human-Centric Information Systems

Salamanca, Spain (19-30 September, 2011)


The Advanced Study Institute (ASI) on the topic of "Prediction and recognition of piracy efforts using collaborative human-centric information systems" was requested by the NATO Council as one of 5 topics, which can be studied jointly by the Security through Science Programme and the Defence Investment Division.

The purpose of an Advanced Study Institute is to contribute to the critical assessment of existing knowledge on new important topics, to identify directions for future research, and to promote close working relationships between scientists from different countries and with different professional experience.

A NATO ASI is a meeting of two to five days' duration, involving between 20 and 50 participants. A NATO ASI is not an international conference or symposium but rather a forum for advanced level, intensive discussions between qualified experts from different countries, and often from different research sectors.

In this ASI mostly NATO country participants and fewer selected Partner and Mediterranean Dialogue country participants have been invited.
