Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Cyber-physical systems exist everywhere in different sizes, with different functionalities and capabilities. Some examples can be listed as collaborative robots, smart cities, industry 4.0 applications, autonomous systems (vehicles, drones), intelligent transport systems, and so on. These systems are not only pushing the limits of traditional engineering practices but also providing new opportunities to solve the most important problems of humanity.

Advancements in data analytics, artificial intelligence, increasing computation and sensing capabilities, interoperability improvements through cloud solutions, and similar advancements in technology promise to unlock the considerable potential of future cyber-physical systems.

In this call, we are looking for cyber-physical systems’ architectures, applications, methodologies, implementations, theoretical and conceptual frameworks, case studies and research finding which primarily focuses on human needs, social implications, and sustainability. These include addressing climate change, providing intelligent transportation solutions, improving issues of health and public safety, supporting the transition to renewable energy resources, planning for smart cities and smart villages, and tackling limited resources for better sustainability, inclusivity, equality, and mobility. We welcome authors to present new techniques, methodologies, frameworks, methods, case studies and research directions for the unsolved issues related to Human-centered Cyber-physical Systems. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the theory and the applications of cyber-physical systems related to the keywords listed below.

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. Technologies is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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.
