INTRODUCTION
Societies and industries face many challenges to be more intelligent and sustainable. In this context, many good practices and approaches are being explored, and numerous new contributions are being generated daily. Many good practices and procedures are being investigated, and several unique contributions emerge without benefitting from sufficient visibility. The track “Artificial Intelligence for Industry and Societies” wants to overcome precisely this gap.

An intelligent society looks to citizens’ problems and tries to maximize the use of high-potential innovative technologies by collaboration across multiple sectors so as to create more efficient, intelligent, and adaptable services, and, ultimately, to enable prosperity and resilience. This is where the concept of smart cities comes into play because they are perfectly placed to coalesce smart infrastructures with human needs through community services. Connected and efficient cities and communities can lead to informed, engaged, and contented citizens.

However, in order to have an innovative society, intelligent industries are also required. The concept of Industry 4.0 has been known in connection to the digital transformation of manufacturing-production and related sectors, and in value-creation processes, with Artificial Intelligence (AI) playing a vital role through the automation of processes, prediction and reduction of errors and failures. However, we are now witnessing post-Industry 4.0 developments in Europe and around the World, as led by eco-innovation and green (re-)industrialization”, driven by the transition to sustainable development. AI will have an even stronger role in these, as complex multi-disciplinary projects need its support.

In this evolution, industry and society must be holding hands, and this is a truly multi-disciplinary endeavour whereby AI is a key hinge and facilitator between technologies, people, goods, and services.

The present conference track seeks to bring together researchers and professionals, and further enable them to explore new solutions and applications across society and Industry: novelties or/and best practices to be implemented in the real world.
The event steps into a new era of technical communication by showing how scientific knowledge can be transferred to society and applied in the Industry using Data Science and AI approaches in topics like “Business, Industry and Smart Factory” and “Sustainable and Smart Cities and Societies”. IA4IS is open to receiving and selecting several high-quality contributions in these two areas, especially propositions related to cognitive computing platforms and applications, including technologies and infrastructures related to AI, machine learning, big data processing and data analytics.

PAPER SUBMISSION
All papers should be submitted in PDF format through EPIA'2024 submission Website. Submissions must be original and can be of two types: regular (full-length) papers should not exceed twelve (12) pages in length, whereas short papers should not exceed six (6) pages. Each submission will be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the Program Committee. The reviewing process is double-blind. The best-accepted papers will appear in the proceedings published by Springer in the LNAI series (previous EPIA proceedings were indexed by the Thomson ISI Web of Knowledge, Scopus, DBLP and ACM digital library). The remaining accepted papers will be published in the local proceedings with ISBN.

*Authors of the best papers presented at the AI4IS track of EPIA will be invited to submit extended versions of their manuscripts to
Engineering: Artificial Intelligence in Smart Computing, Industry and Societies (https://link.springer.com/collections/cehecfgjid) or for a Special Issue in the Journal of Future Internet (MDPI) or at other EPIA Fast-Track submission process
