It is our pleasure to invite you to contribute to The 2nd ACM SIGSPATIAL Workshop on Advances In Resilient and Intelligent Cities (ARIC 2019), which will be held on Nov. 5, 2019 in Chicago, Illlionois, USA.

A smart city is forward-looking and progressive and has the potential to provide a higher-quality of life. A resilient city can preserve its characteristics, activities and bounce back to its previous stage in the face of an emergency while meeting the daily needs of its citizens.  However, the discussion about making cities intelligent and resilient are occurring on two parallel planes. The challenge is to plan and design intelligent cities under the framework of resilience so that online and real-time knowledge discovery from dynamic data streams could be used in conjunction with static data sets to help practitioners and researchers with their policy decisions. While current developments in data science and artificial intelligence has enabled real-time analytics of online and static data sets, the issue of modeling urban plans to ensure an intelligent city that is also resilient need to be well understood to maximize the benefits of connected technologies. 

The purpose of this workshop is to bring together researchers, practitioners and academicians to address the challenges of integrating computation, geospatial and urban sciences in building intelligent and resilient cities. The focus of this workshop is to provide a platform to discuss research areas and issues in modeling urban design by considering sensor technology, edge computing, visualization, modeling and simulation, advanced data analytics. More details can be found on the workshop website: 

Example topics include but not limited to:
+ Analytics to integrate heterogenous spatio-temporal data for prediction, detection of anomalies and unusual patterns;
+ Real-time analytics of dynamic and distributed data;
+ Edge and distributed computing to mine information from ubiquitous data about cyber-physical systems;
+ Human dynamics in the Age of Smart/Intelligent Systems;
+ Spatial social network analytics in the built environment;
+ Theoretical and practical applications of Internet of Things in urban settings;
+ Visualizing urban areas and optimal locations of sensors for urban resilience;
+ Urban mobility data management and visualization;
+ Using augmented reality, simulations and 3D-geovisualization for urban planning and to enhance stakeholder experience through collective intelligence;
+ Case studies of successful deployment of smart and resilient cities;
+ Policies and theoretical framework needed for successful deployment of intelligent and resilient cities;
+ Existing state-of-the-art and future directions to integrating social and cyber-physical systems to achieve both smart and resilient cities.
