With the rapid progress of industrialisation and civilisation, intelligent systems are emerging as a concept where every device, person, vehicle, building and street in the area can be used as a component to probe intelligent social information for serving people and their lives.

Intelligent systems aim to enhance both human life and environment smartly through a recurrent process of sensing, mining, understanding and improving. They also aim to deeply understand the nature and science behind the phenomena occurring in urban spaces, using a variety of heterogeneous data sources such as traffic flows, human mobility, geographic data, environment protection, energy consumption, economics, etc. In all of the above, intelligent systems can give rise to a richer user experience with a wide variety of interactive devices, from recommenders to storytelling platforms.

This special issue's objective is to provide a platform for researchers to share their thoughts and findings on various issues in intelligent systems. Our goal is to compile the latest advancements addressing the topic of intelligent systems.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the 2nd International Conference on Intelligent Systems and Image Processing (ICISIP2014) and the 3rd International Conference on Industrial Application Engineering (ICIAE2015), but we also encourage researchers unable to participate in the conferences to submit articles for this call.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Smart sensors in science and engineering
  • Intelligent systems for social welfare
  • Intelligent interfaces and visualisation systems
  • Intelligent systems on small, mobile and wireless systems
  • Smart systems for energy exploration and environment protection
  • Electrical circuits and systems for sensor design
  • Control theory and methods for sensor systems
  • Imaging applications and system evaluation
  • Big data for multimedia systems
  • Vision sensors for robotics

Notes for Prospective Authors

Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. (N.B. Conference papers may only be submitted if the paper has been completely re-written and if appropriate written permissions have been obtained from any copyright holders of the original paper).

All papers are refereed through a peer review process.

All papers must be submitted online. To submit a paper, please read our Submitting articles page.
