Over the time, researchers and scientists have promoted the development of smart cities.  Moreover, the aim is to transform current business models and enhance human lifestyles. With  the current pace of potential research, Smart cities will soon find many new horizons to touch.  Smart cities development with IoT is now providing a base of technological advancement in  various realms such as pervasive healthcare, smart homes, smart cities, connected logistics,  automated supply chain, manufacturing units, and many more. IoT is also paving the path for the  emergence of the digital revolution in industrial technology, termed Industry 4.0. 

The workshop is inclusively demonstrating the need of time where the researchers will contribute  from varied application domains. To keep abreast with this development, it is an effort to bring  the recent advances in smart cities with intelligent computing and its emerging applications in a  cohesive manner. The main objective is to bring most of the major developments in the above mentioned area in a precise manner, so that it can serve as a platform for many researchers. I  trust and hope that this workshop will help the researchers, who have interest in smart cities  analysis and computational intelligence, to keep insight into recent advances and their  importance in real life applications.  

We invite all researchers, scientists and practitioners to share their interesting research, ideas,  experience and results. The major topics related
