The UCL Jill Dando Institute of Security and Crime Science is delighted to host the 2015 International Crime and Intelligence Analysis Conference in Manchester, England on the 26th and 27th February 2015.  The conference is being organised in partnership with the IACA and will double as the IACA's International Training Symposium.

The conference is THE event for intelligence professionals, analysts, community safety officers, investigators, and researchers interested in intelligence-led policing, problem solving, partnership working, crime prevention, and the analysis that underpins decision making.  The conference appeals to practitioners and academics, albeit with all content directed at practical means for improving policing and public safety. 

The conference is primarily a training event through the many classes that are on offer; an opportunity to learn from good practice from the presentation of real world cases, applications and problem solving; from the latest research that has a very strong operationally applied focus; and from key leaders who are innovating new ways for delivering policing and community safety services.

How to register: registration will open in October 2014.

The programme for the 2015 conference includes:

  • Keynotes:

    • Mark Evans, Deputy Chief Executive of New Zealand Police
    • Jerry Ratcliffe, Professor of Criminal Justice at Temple University
  • Conference programme:

A full conference programme will be available in late December 2014.  Our conference programme includes seminar streams, with presentations chosen from submissions to our call for abstracts, and technical workshops and classes which provide for a more interactive learning opportunity for delegates.  Topics will likely include

    • Predictive policing
    • Evidence-based policing
    • Social media analysis

The conference offers three types of opportunities for our commercial supporters:

- Official conference partner (including exhibitor and conference speaker)

- Exhibitor

- Conference speaker

Be an official conference partner

Our official conference partner package includes an exhibition stand space, a 50 minute workshop speaking opportunity within our conference programme (more details on both below), and unlimited delegate passes for support staff to attend the conference.  As an official conference partner your company details and logo will be promoted on the cover of all our literature, the conference website and e-promotions (with hyperlinks to your preferred site) as we plan for and promote the event.  For example, in all our email, twitter and Facebook conference promotions ‘Official conference sponsor <company name>’ will be prominent. The official conference partner package is £4,495 (plus VAT).

Be a conference exhibitor

Exhibition stand spaces are available for the 2-day conference at a price of £2550 (plus VAT) and includes two delegate passes for you to man your stand at the event. Each available stand space is of the same size at 3m wide and 2m in depth and will be provided with electricity points and wifi. Each stand space comes with a table and two chairs (but does not have to be used if not required!). Additional furniture and audio-visual equipment can be hired from the conference venue if required. The exhibitor space is in the main foyer of the conference where all catering is served.  Stand spaces are limited so please book without delay to avoid disappointment. A stand space floor plan will be available in due course for exhibitors to choose where they wish to be positioned. Any additional exhibitor attendees that wish to attend (i.e., in addition to the two delegate passes that are provided) are required to register and pay as paying delegates.

Each exhibitor has the opportunity to present a 60 second showcase to conference delegates at the end of the first plenary session in the main hall on the 26th February.

Be a conference speaker - classes

At the conference we run a stream of 50 minute 'classes' (classes have a maximum of 50 delegates).  These have been extremely popular in recent years and have proven to be a useful means for vendors to demonstrate their technology and services, or workshop their applications into a more technical and interactive learning environment. These speaking opportunities are available at a price of £1600 per class (plus VAT) and include two delegate passes to speak and attend both days of the conference.

We hope to attract 150 delegates to the 2015 conference.

The exhibition space is in the large hall in the hub of the conference's activities, immediately next to the conference's main lecture rooms, and in the area where all refreshments will be served.
