Call for papers: Next Generation of Community Policing Crete October 2017

Call for papers – Next Generation of Community Policing

Police innovation requires a common ground of trust and a fair field of experimentation and exchange of ideas, both within and outside the police structure, and, perhaps most importantly, a recognition of the common stake of the entire community in better police services. Community Policing research is an interdisciplinary field of research that focuses on the development, use, and evaluation of policing best practices combined with Societal, Ethical, Legal & Data Privacy, Criminology and Technological Applications related to the Geographic Information Systems, Smart Apps and integrated Networks.

During NGCP conference several stimulating forums will gather people from the international Stakeholders’ community as well as well distinguished members of the academia, EU Member-States and National government, and the industry. We hereby invite academic researchers from above-mentioned disciplines, as well as other related areas in order to scientifically contribute to the NGCP conference which will take place in October 25th-27th, 2017 in Heraklion, Crete, Greece.

Pre-conference dates:
June 16th 2017 —abstract submission deadline
July 14th 2017 — notification of acceptance
September 15th 2017 — full paper draft submission deadline

Conference dates:
October 25th -27th 2017
