The main aim of Smart Cities is to improve the daily life of the citizens and supporting their habits by proposing subject oriented services. In urban scenarios, this improvement is mainly oriented to people and vehicles, which may take advantage from surveillance systems providing services and guaranteeing safe living environments.

In this context, novel artificial intelligence methods, techniques and systems, particularly those based on Machine/Deep Learning, Computer Vision and Internet of Things, are emerging to solve real-life problems, ranging from video surveillance, road safety and traffic monitoring, prevention of accidents or critical events, to intelligent transportation and management of public services. In fact, AI-based approaches, also leveraging on IoT or cloud networks, may serve as underlying methods to tackle this wide range of problems.

The First International Workshop on Artificial Intelligence methods for Smart Cities (AISC 2021) is organized by the Artificial Intelligence and Big Data Laboratory (aibd.unica.it) of the University of Cagliari (Italy), in conjunction with University of Naples "Federico II" (Italy), as a part of the EUSPN-2021 International Conference to be held in Leuven (Belgium), on November 1-4, 2021.

The objective of AISC 2021 is to solicit and publish the latest advances and ideas, based on Machine/Deep Learning, heuristics and/or Computer Vision techniques, on topics which include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Artificial Intelligence methods for Smart Cities;
  • Anomalies detection;
  • People/objects detection;
  • Fight recognition;
  • Gait analysis in uncontrolled scenarios;
  • Dangerous pedestrian crossing;
  • Background/Foreground segmentations in urban scenarios;
  • Vehicle/drone tracking;
  • Video-surveillance in Smart Cities;
  • Crowd analysis;
  • Lane Detection/Segmentation;
  • Traffic light management;
  • Smart Cities databases;
  • Car reidentification;
  • License Plate recognition;
  • Object Trajectory estimation/prediction;
  • Cloud-based approaches for traffic management;
  • IoT networks in Smart Cities;
  • Biometric identification;
  • Intelligent transportation systems.
