Extensive research has been developed aiming to developing computational tools for Smart Cities. Actually, researchers have focused their attention on using techniques of Data Mining and Machine Learning aiming more efficient and pleasant cities. For example, data acquired by imaging cameras distributed along a city square can be used to analyze its occupation with the use of dashboards, but also to estimate future occupations based on machine learning models in order to support better decision making as to, e.g., people and property security.

The main goal of the proposed “Data Mining and Machine Learning in Smart Cities”, is to bring together researchers involved in the related fields (Data Analytics, Pattern Recognition, Prediction and Simulation, Software Development, etc.), in order to set the major lines of development for the near future.

The proposed Workshop will consist of researchers representing various fields related to Data Mining, Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Signal Processing, Computational Vision, Informatics, Statistics, Management, Architecture, Smart Cities, City Authorities, Policy Makers, etc., and endeavors to make a contribution to achieving better solutions for more efficient and pleasant cities, and attempts to establish a bridge between researchers from diverse fields.
