Journal Special Issue

The Scientific Committee of the IWSSIP 2020 will invite a selection of outstanding papers presented at the conference for review and potential publication on a special issue of the International Journal of Innovative Computing and Applications (IJICA). The selected conference papers to become journal manuscripts will have to provide at least 50% new material, compared to the conference paper. They will be double-blind reviewed according to the IJICA's policy, and they will be evaluated based on originality, technical, and research content/depth, correctness, contributions, and readability.

special and challenge sessions

Special Session on Signal and Image Processing for Smart Cities

From more than two decades, the concept of "smart city" (also called "intelligent city" or "digital city") has become more and more popular in scientific literature. Smart Cities (SCs) commonly refer to urban spaces that make use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) to enhance the quality and performance of urban services such as energy, transportation, critical infrastructures, and other urban utilities in order to reduce resource energy consumption, wastage, CO2 emissions and overall costs. SCs aim to improve urban management performance by using massive data to provide better services to citizens, to monitor and optimize existing infrastructures, and to encourage innovative business models in both private and public sectors.

The SC field has made very important progress in recent years. However, the challenges are so many and diverse that they still require extensive research and validation before SC can become a standard way of conceiving urban development. For example, the monitoring of urban spaces (e.g. for maintenance purposes) in SCs is complex and time-consuming since this space is currently surrounded by (or it is embedded with) smart Internet-of-Things (IoT) systems for capturing and processing huge amounts of data. Additionally, these tasks can also receive data from citizens' smartphones under a crowd-sourcing philosophy. SCs are supported by extensive digital infrastructure of (signal and imaging) sensors, real-time data, databases, and intelligent applications (i.e. software embedded in the various components forming the intelligent urban ecosystem).

In this special session, we are particularly interested in applications which relate the use of signal and image processing approaches to smart cities' applications, services and infrastructures. Examples of topics of interest for this Special Session (but not limited to these) are:

In order to submit to this special session, when uploading your paper to the conference submission system please add the words "Smart Cities" in begining of the subject of your work. Note: It is expected that extended versions of selected papers will be considered for a journal special issue.
