1. Special Session on Data Analytics for Intelligent Transportation Systems (DA4ITS)

Optimization and analysis of transportation systems have considerably become more autonomous and smarter with the utilization of connectivity and automation in terms of overcoming urbanization problems, such as ever-growing population, increasing personal travel activities, limited budgets for infrastructure deployments, etc. With this in mind, there is an increasing need for high cooperation for innovative, strategic, and operational management strategies among different types of transportation modes, with different objectives and policies. Intelligent transportation systems (ITS), even more today than before, will have significant duties in providing efficient integration and cooperation among different technologies and services.
With the utilization of such technologies and services, complex and diverse multi-source ITS data have increased massively. Those valuable vast amounts of data can be handled by big data analytics in terms of providing efficient, safe, and convenient ITS operations. Through the big data oriented emerging technologies, traffic becomes more intelligent, more manageable, and safer.
We welcome original contributions on methodologies, formalisms, algorithms, and solutions on Big Data for the following topics and related areas:
  • Traffic Optimization
  • Road Network, Rail Traffic, and Air Traffic Analysis and Management
  • Traffic Safety
  • Connected and Autonomous Vehicles
  • Machine Learning, Deep Learning and Optimization Techniques for ITS
  • Mobility and Accessibility
  • Data Collection, Sensing and Detectors
  • Special Events and Emergency Management
  • Environment and Air Quality
  • Logistics
  • Big Data in Vision, and Environment Perception

2. Special Session on Metaverse in Data Analytics (MeDA)

The metaverse has quickly become a hot issue in both technology and socioeconomics. The metaverse is a hybrid of virtual reality, augmented reality, and mixed reality that blurs the barriers between online and offline relationships. It will become a place where people can work, shop, play, and participate.
The value chain of the metaverse may include different layers such as infrastructure, human interface, decentralization, spatial computing, creator economy, discovery, and experience. Taking advantage of these layers, some areas in which AI and data science can play a relevant role in the future of the metaverse, not only from a product perspective, but also considering how AI and data science could make the Metaverse more inclusive. We invite submissions on a wide range of research topics, including, but not limited to:
  • Data analytics on physical devices and sensors
  • Recognition and rendering for metaverse
  • User interaction
  • Technical methods
  • AI-aided applications such as healthcare, manufacturing, smart cities, and gaming
The authors of selected best papers will be invited to extend their contributions for the Journal of Metaverse.

3. Special Session on Artificial Intelligence for Cyber Security (AI4CS)

The recent COVID-19 pandemic opens a new door of hope and aspiration to the world. The pandemic thought us how to adopt with the changes and new technologies. In fact, all most all professions can be accomplished with the help of digital technology. Undoubtedly, the world is now on its digital age where all most all sectors such as education, software, and business have gracefully accepted the change. However, every opportunity comes with some challenges. The biggest threat to this digital era is security to our confidential information. In this regard, though there are numerous techniques and tools using encryption, watermarking, and steganography for achieving protection to the information in transit. Still, it looks we are far away from complete protection. Thanks to the recent advancement of machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), we can now think of better solution in achieving greater security to our information. Applications of AI can be a real boon to the field of privacy preserving and copyright protection. In this aspect, we can think of a digital World, which can be free from fake and forged information.

We invite high quality research and contributions in this domain to explore the possibility of AI enabled tools using watermarking, steganography and encryption in the following areas:

  • Artificial intelligence in Cloud Security
  • Artificial intelligence in Blockchain
  • Artificial intelligence in Internet of Thing (IoT) Security
  • Artificial intelligence in Steganography
  • Artificial intelligence in Watermarking
  • Artificial intelligence in Cryptography
