Scope of the workshop

First International Workshop on Artificially Intelligent Smart SocieTies (AIST) will be held in Hong Kong, China in conjunction with the 3rd IEEE International Conference on Smart Computing (SMARTCOMP2017). Smart computing aims to collect voluminous data through sensors embedded in the surrounding environment and take intelligent decisions with regards to certain events. E.g., a smart healthcare system remotely monitors elderly individuals living alone in homes and look for emergency health related events, such as, accidental fall or sudden stroke, etc. The system collects vital signs through wearable health sensors and use AI or machine learning techniques to decide on the event. So, we can observe that the applications of intelligent techniques are inevitable for developing smart systems (smart cities, smart home, office, hospital, meeting rooms, cars) and applications with capabilities to interpret the information and to take informed decisions. With the rise of interest in building smart applications, we encounter various real world problems which can benefit the society as a whole, if solved properly. For, e.g, (a) efficient water quality monitoring can ensure proper quality of water served for drinking, industry or agricultural purposes depending on specific requirements; (b) efficient healthcare assistant can track health status of elderly individuals staying alone in home to make decisions during emergency events through continuous learning; or (c) they can provide tailored services to patients in smart hospitals, (d) intelligently choosing proper sensor or communication interface depending on the data volume, communication requirement and importance of the event, (e) providing intelligent road traffic routing depending on action priorities of the user and based on the congestion condition which can further depend on weather or any other unexpected events, such as, accident, strike, etc.

This workshop will present a platform to showcase smart systems developed using AI and machine learning techniques and handles large amounts of sensory data. Almost all real-world problems, which are important for the societal welfare, and could potentially be solved using AI techniques, can be presented in this workshop by researchers from industry and academia. In general, we want to focus on solutions of the following questions: (a) how to design smart systems with autonomous coordination capabilities; (b) how to develop intelligent decision making abilities in emergency and safety-critical systems, and (c) how to handle real-time conditions innovate computing technology for diverse societal applications to improve the human experience.

The AIST workshop aims to provide a forum for the interaction of these multiple areas as an important chance to discuss and understand what aspects have to be considered to provide effective intelligent solutions to real world problems. Topics of interest include (but not limited to):
• Urban Computing
Ubiquitous sensing, Smart city planning, Smart grid techniques, Big data in smart city, Smart traffic management, Smart infrastructure health monitoring
• Environmental Sustainability
Environmental sustainability, Water quality monitoring, Pollution control and management, Wildlife Protection
• Smart Health
Smart healthcare, Embedded and connected health
• Public Welfare and Criminal Justice
Criminal activity profiling, Social welfare, Crowdsourcing and human computation, Cyber-physical systems and society

Paper submissions should be no longer than 6 pages with a font size of 10 using the IEEE conference template ( Papers must be submitted electronically as PDF files. All submitted papers will be subject to single blind peer reviews by Technical Program Committee members and other experts in the field. All presented papers in the conference will be published in the proceedings of the conference and submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Authors are requested to first register their submissions and submit their manuscripts in PDF format via EasyChair (please, select the “First International Workshop on Artificially Intelligent Smart SocieTies” track during submission process). Note that at least one author of each accepted paper must register and attend the workshop to present the paper. Failure to present the paper at the workshop will result in the withdrawal of the paper from the Proceedings.

All papers accepted and presented in the workshop will be published in the main conference proceedings and submitted in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library
High quality accepted papers will be considered for publication (after extension) in a SCI indexed journal.
