Special Issue on Social and Intelligent Applications for Future Cities
------------------------------------------------
Motivation

In the last few years we have observed an increasing presence of intelligent applications in our daily lives: from accurate product recommendations, cyber-threat detection, to sophisticated software assistants. Many of these applications have certainly had an impact in our lifestyle, but they have mostly remained in the realm of the digital world. Despite the fact that we are increasingly digital citizens, cities and urban areas will always be our main ecosystem and, therefore, the main aspect affecting our daily lives.

The next barrier for intelligent applications is pervading urban areas to optimize resources, foster sustainable practices, fighting inequalities, creating new opportunities, and, generally, improving the welfare of their inhabitants. While the goals seem attractive, they do not come without their challenges: harnessing the predictive power behind humungous volumes of data generated by citizens and deployed sensors, managing and distributing scarce and limited resources, providing scalable intelligent solutions that support millions of users, fostering cooperation and coordination between thousands of self-interested agents, using human relationships and interactions to the cities’ own advantage, and effectively interacting with a wide range of citizens.

This special issue aims to advance the state of the art in the application of intelligent methods to improve cities and urban areas, with a special focus on those applications that take into consideration human collaboration, interactions, communication, or social behavior. We specially encourage the submission of articles describing applications, but we also welcome theoretical work and review articles on novel applications of intelligent methods to cities.
