Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The last twenty years have seen a radical step-change in the capability and application of Control Engineering, brought about by advances in computational speed and capacity. Control design for contemporary, complex engineering systems has developed alongside Computer Aided Control System Design, powerful real-time embedded computation, and both off-line and on-line optimization techniques.

This Special Issue will bring together papers, which particularly describe recent advances in Control Engineering in industrial applications and complex engineering systems, describing the application of novel theory across all areas of Automation. Papers which include practical experimental results are particularly encouraged, as are papers which set Control advances in the wider context of, for example, society, economics, energy and environment.

Application topics might include:
Aeronautic/Automotive/Transportation Engineering
Autonomous Vehicles
Biomedical Engineering
Electrical Power Systems(including Renewables and Smart Grid)
Environmental Engineering
Manufacturing and Process Control
Robotics

Control Theory topics might include:
Artificial Intelligence and Heuristics
Optimisation and Search
Non-linear, Adaptive and Robust Control
Advances in PID
Systems Identification
Model based Control
Fault Detection and Diagnostics

Submission

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Machines 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 300 CHF (Swiss Francs). English correction and/or formatting fees of 250 CHF (Swiss Francs) will be charged in certain cases for those articles accepted for publication that require extensive additional formatting and/or English corrections.
