Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The optimization of feedforward and feedback controllers with respect to predefined performance criteria as well as the enhancement and verification of their robustness with respect to external disturbances and uncertain parameters are widespread aspects of current research activities. The same holds for the reliable estimation of non-measurable system states and for the identification of parameters based on uncertain measurements. Possible applications of related optimization algorithms can be found not only in the frame of a control and estimator synthesis, but also in the field of reliable modeling and in the model-based analysis of measured data.
This Special Issue aims at providing a platform for the publication of novel algorithms in the frame of reliable and optimal estimation and control. Moreover, application-oriented aspects highlighting the practical applicability of theoretical approaches are highly welcome.
Possible topics of interest include:
- Optimal and robust control of finite-dimensional systems;
- Optimization and robustness analysis for partial differential equations;
- Representation of epistemic and aleatory uncertainty by means of:
- Interval analysis; and
- Stochastic modeling procedures;
- Structural optimization of controllers and state observers;
- Parameter optimization and identification;
- Stability analysis.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Algorithms is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
