Call For Papers

Dear Colleagues,

the main aim of Smart Cities is improving the daily life of the citizens and supporting their habits by proposing subject oriented services. In urban scenarios, this improvement is mainly oriented to pedestrians and drivers, which may take advantage from surveillance systems providing services and guaranteeing safe living environments. To this purpose, we kindly invite you to submit your work to the 1st International Workshop on Anomalies Detection and Road Traffic Analysis in Smart Cities: methods, applications cloud-based technologies - I-WANDER 2021, in conjuction with the the 10th International Conference on Pattern Recognition Applications and Methods - ICPRAM 2021. The main scope of this workshop is to gather papers and proposals dealing with methods and systems able to detect anomalous events in urban traffic scenarios and to launch alerts in cases their presence is confirmed. In fact, IoT, cloud and CV based approaches may serve as underlying systems for detecting several anomalous situations, both related to vehicles and to pedestrians.


The main topics of interest of I-WANDER 2021 will include, but are not limited to:

* Anomalies Detection in Urban Scenarios
* Person and Object detection in lanes
* Fight recognition
* Gait analysis in uncontrolled scenarios
* Dangerous pedestrian crossing
* Background/Foreground segmentations in urban scenarios
* Car and pedestrian tracking
* Lane Detection/Segmentation
* Urban Scenario Databases
* Car re-identification
* License Plate recognition
* Object Trajectory estimation/prediction
* Cloud based approaches for traffic management
* IoT services in Smart Cities
* Biometric re-identification in uncontrolled scenarios


Paper Submission: November 26, 2020
Authors Notification: December 14, 2020
Camera Ready and Registration: December 22, 2020


After thorough reviewing by the workshop program committee, all accepted papers will be published in a special section of the conference proceedings book, and will be available at the SCITEPRESS Digital Library (
SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef ( and every paper is given a DOI (Digital Object Identifier), and is indexed by Scopus. Moreover, the best papers accepted at I-WANDER 2021 will be selected to submit an extended version of their work at the Special Issue "Cloud-Based Biometrics for Smart Cities" of the international journal MDPI Smart Cities (ISSN 2624-6511), that will be fully indexed in Scopus starting from next year (2021). Invited works will also have a total or partial discount on the APC, for open access publication.

We would also appreciate it if you could spread this call for papers to your interested colleagues.

Yours sincerely,
the Workshop General Co-chairs
