Anomalies Detection and Road Traffic Analysis in Smart Cities 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
