# Smart Cities and Urban Data

We are gradually moving towards a smart city era. Many innovative
applications arise daily utilizing massive urban data streams. Technologies
that apply machine learning algorithms to urban data will have significant
impact in many aspects of the citizens' everyday life. Examples of such
applications include managing disastrous events, understanding the city's
sentiment and opinion, tracking health issues, monitoring crucial
environmental factors as well as improving energy efficiency and optimizing
traffic. Unfortunately, urban data have some characteristics that hinder
the state of the art in  data mining algorithms. Such are diversity,
privacy, distributed and partitioned data, lack of labels, noise,
complimentarity of multiple sources and the requirement for online
learning. Many smart city applications require to tackle all these problems
in parallel. This workshop aims at discussing a set of new data mining
applications and paradigms emerging from the smart city environment.

We especially welcome contributions based on data that can be reused by the
community, and we plan to make a list of these data sets available on the
workshop website. For researchers who would like to try their hand on smart
city data, data sets from the city of Dublin and the city of Warsaw will be
listed on the workshop's website.

# Topics

A non-exhaustive list of challenges posed by smart cities data and welcomed
at the workshop include:

- Online learning / Data Stream Mining
- Large Scale Analytics
- Mining Mobile data
- Heterogeneous Sensor Data
- Learning with Social media
- Event Detection
- Learning with Uncertain/Noisy Data
- Learning without Labels
- Computer vision
- Sensor Networks
- Visual Analytics
- Traffic Management
- Crowd Sourcing
- Emergency Response

All the above should be addressed in the smart city context.

# Applications

MUD will focus on presenting novel approaches that target some of the
following applications: a) Traffic Management, b) Public Transport
Adjustment, c) Accident Prevention, d) Resource Allocation, e) Energy
Efficiency, f) Sentiment Analysis, g) Environmental Applications.

# Submission

Submission are being accepted at EasyChair:

Submissions should follow the KDD 2018 format
and can be up to eight pages long, excluding references. Additional
appendices are allowed. Papers do not need to be anonymized.  All
submissions will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. The
conference proceedings will be published as CEUR Workshop Proceedings
(CEUR-WS.org) and will be indexed by DBLP. Accepted papers will be either
presented as a talk or poster. We welcome submissions on novel research
work as well as extended abstracts on work recently published or under
review in another conference or journal. In that case only an extended
abstract will be published in the proceedings.

Please find more information at the website: http://kddlab.di.uoa.gr/mud3/
