Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Thanks to recent progress in sensor technologies (ST, including sensor networks) and information and communication technology (ICT), new intelligent systems are emerging such as autonomous vehicles, robots and computer systems. This trend will be accelerated by computational approaches to self-awareness and self-consciousness in Cognitive Psychology. Quantum computations and even Game Theory have potential to contribute to understanding and practical realization of the self-recognition machinery. This Special Issue calls for papers on Self-Recognizing Machinery that will contribute to build autonomous systems or to enhance the autonomy of existing autonomous systems. For example, papers on the topic include, but are not limited to, the following areas of interest:
1. Models for Self-Recognizing Machinery
2. Technologies to attain Self-Recognition and Self-Organizing Systems
3. Applications of Self-Recognition and Self-Organizing Technologies
4. Sensors and ICT based realization of Self-Recognition Systems
5. Macro and Autonomous Operations and Organizations of Large-Scale Systems
6. Models and Applications of Biological Self-Recognition
7. Models and Applications of Physical Self-Recognition

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) is waived for well-prepared manuscripts submitted to this issue. 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.
