Call For Papers

Scientific Scope

All the cities of the world suffer events of diverse nature that endanger the life of their citizens. The security forces protect public and private institutions with professionalism, but the great diversity of possible events makes it very difficult to prevent them, and above all, to plan beforehand the optimal response to each threat. Unfortunately, the current global alert situation due to the proliferation of terrorist acts, directly oriented towards citizenship, has only emphasized the need to evolve current security systems to deal with threats in the best possible way. Our response to other types of hazards, including common crime, fires, earthquakes, tsunami, civil disturbances, and many others, would also be enhanced using modern information and communication technology.

Smart cities and their citizens, infrastructure and sensor networks generate a great amount of data. This information must be processed in real-time by critical information systems and notify the citizens and/or security forces through mobile applications or actuators, promoting safety and protection for people, patrimony and a whole environment.

List of topics of interest:
-Emergency management systems and applications in Smart Cities
-Crowdsensing for emergency detection
-Data mining and machine learning techniques for emergency detection
-Computer vision for security applications
-Smart Sensor Networks to monitor emergencies
-Social network analysis focused on emergency detection
-Crime prediction and criminal data analysis for safety improvement
-Robotic security forces
-Drones, security applications
-Security in the Software of Smart Cities
-IoT and Security Issues

Important Dates:

-Paper submission: Until February 18, 2018
-Notification of acceptance: March 26, 2018
-Camera Ready papers and Registration: April 1, 2018
-CISTI 2018 Conference: June 13-16, 2018

Where: Cáceres, Spain

Paper Submission and Format Guidelines

We invite authors to submit unpublished work resulted from research that present original scientific result, methodological aspects, concepts and approaches in the field. Submitted work must not be not under revision elsewhere. The submissions will be double-blind reviewed on a rolling basis to ensure a rapid decision. Therefore, authors should not include on submissions names and affiliations during the reviewing phase and avoid references in the text that can possibly identify authors. Submissions must be of Full Paper (up to 6 pages). Papers must be written in English and must follow the conference format guidelines. Format guidelines: . Although submissions shall be done using PDF file format, camera ready versions of the accepted papers must be delivered in MS Word format also. Submissions must be done using EasyChair: choosing the appropriate Workshop.


Regardless of the type of submission, Programme Committee and Organizing Committee may suggest papers to be accepted as full-paper (6 pages), short-paper (4 pages) or poster (2 pages). Workshops full papers will be published in the conference proceedings in specific Workshop chapters. Proceedings will be submitted for indexation by ISI Thomson, SCOPUS, INSPEC and Google Scholar. Detailed and up-to-date information may be found at CISTI 2017 website Published full and short papers will be sent to EI, IEEE XPlore, INSPEC, ISI, SCOPUS and Google Scholar. Poster papers and company papers will be sent to EBSCO and EI. Authors of accepted papers must register for the workshop to have papers published in the proceedings.
