Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The recent advances in Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) have been phenomenal. Through various disruptive innovations, they have brought us to the digitalization era that is characterized by the keywords “smart” and “connected”. While all previous efforts were intended to automate individual systems, today’s focus is on the integration of all systems within a value chain into digital ecosystems.

After realizing far-reaching automation on aircraft, the aeronautics domain is now looking at the next generation of flight. Aeronautical informatics is here the key applied field of research that focuses on understanding, applying, and enhancing advancement of ICT in aeronautics. This multidisciplinary field is involved in information processing and engineering of information systems in relation to the science or practice of building or flying aircraft.

This Special Issue aims to highlight recent aeronautical informatics research and encourages authors to submit full research articles and review manuscripts that address (but are not limited to) advances in Software Engineering, Cyber-Physical Systems, Internet of Things (IoT), Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA), Digital Twin, Big Data and Data Analytics, Artificial Intelligence, Reconfigurable Computing, and Wireless/Cellular Networking applied to aeronautics.

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. Aerospace is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 1000 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.
