Special Issue "Modeling and Control of Environmental Systems: Theory and Application"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2020).
Interests: control systems; air quality management; air quality planning; nonlinear modelling; uncertainty analysis
Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
In recent years, research in environmental systems has become increasingly important, involving a number of disciplines such as engineering, information science, physics, mathematics, economy, biology, and social sciences.
The complexity of the involved phenomena usually forces researchers to split the problem at hand into two strongly related phases: modeling and control.
In terms of modeling, the complexity is due to the fact that environmental systems are often nonlinear, distributed, and affected by (high) uncertainties in both input and knowledge of the involved phenomena.
From the control design point of view, several challenges arise from (1) the complexity of the model, which often pushes to introduce approximations (i.e., linearity), heavily affecting the performances, and (2) the pointwise nature of the available measurements for the variable to be controlled.
This Special Issue is going to include papers addressing all the scientific challenges related to environmental systems modeling and control. Papers related to air quality, water management, and climate change, focusing on theoretical results and/or applications, are welcome.
The Special Issue will investigate the following topics, but contributions in related fields will also be considered:
- Environmental systems modelling, analysis and control
- Data-driven environmental/climate change modeling
- Climate change analysis
- Air quality modelling, control and planning
- Water management

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. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1800 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.
