In the recent years, with the successful development and the deployment of Internet of Things (IOT) architectures, cities across the world are becoming smart Cities. As result, many services ensured by each city, such as transportation, buildings, healthcare, education, agriculture and energy management are becoming more and more intelligent. Moreover, Artificial Intelligence (AI) represents promising solution to bring intelligence into different entities of smart city. However, the process of integration brings new challenges and problems.

In addition, security is one of an important challenges that arises since smart city applications not only collect a wide range of sensitive information from user and their mobile applications, but also control access to different ressources of city.


In this workshop, we are focusing on artificial intelligence and security-related problems that currently affect smart cities in general around the world. For this, the objective of this Workshop is to bring together researchers to discuss recent algorithms and solutions related to both problems.




Authors are invited to submit previously unpublished papers to this Workshop. Topics include, but are not limited to:

  • AI-based protocols and services for smart cities
  • AI-based application for smart cities
  • IA-based communications Security
  • Cloud Computing Security
  • Security for Ubiquitous/Pervasive Computing
  • Big Data Analytics for Smart Cities Security
  • AI-based big data analysis for smart cities
  • AI-based cloud computing for smart cities

Important Dates

  • Submission: August 1, 2019
  • Acceptance notification: August 31, 2019
  • Camera-ready paper submissions: September 15, 2019


Submission Guidelines

Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical papers—up to 6 pages of length, using the EDAS link: for possible publication in the ISC2 2019 Conference Proceedings, which will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore. Selected papers will further considered for possible publication in three special issues in the following Journals.
