Special Issue "Smart Sensing, Information Security and Control of Industrial Cyber-Physical Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2017)
Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are physical and engineered systems of which operations are monitored, coordinated, controlled, and integrated by such computing and communication. Broad deployment of cyber-physical systems is transforming how we interact with the physical world as profoundly as the World-Wide Web transformed how we interact with one another. When the physical systems are limited to industrial processes, the CPS become industrial CPS (ICPS). A typical hierarchy of ICPS starts at the bottom with an industrial process, then sensing networks, communication networks, and ends with applications at the top layer. Among the relevant research areas are security, control, optimization, machine learning, game theory, mechanism design, mobile and cloud computing, model-based design, verification, data mining and analytics, signal processing, and human-in-the-loop shared or supervisory control.
This Special Issue aims to present the latest developments in the sensing, security, control and emergency response of industrial CPS, especially achievements in the real applications. We wish to clearly identify the key challenges of engineering design to industrial CPS, to explore the degree to which core elements of theory contribution to CPS, and to anticipate the future innovation in putting the sensing, security and control systems together. We invite investigators in the field to contribute with their recent work around CPS research and applications. Any review papers are also welcome.

- Wireless sensor network
- Wireless sensor networks
- Smart sensing
- In-network data query and aggregation
- CPS control and security

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. Information 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 350 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.
