Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Artificial intelligence (AI), due to its capabilities in knowledge processing, pattern recognition, prioritization, and optimization, is among the leading techniques to solve complex engineering problems. AI methods provide a wide variety of benefits, including more sustainable solutions with improved accuracy and reliability while saving in cost, energy, time, as well as physical and human resources. AI has the potential to enhance sustainability by detecting damage and distress, predicting extreme weather conditions and natural hazards, enhancing automated systems, monitoring infrastructure conditions, developing predictive models, and helping towards greener transportation and engineering.

This Special Issue welcomes the latest findings, methodologies, and conceptual frameworks in the area of applications of AI to move towards sustainable engineering. Various research articles and reviews that bridge multiple domains of AI and sustainable engineering will be considered, including but not limited to:

  • AI and sustainable infrastructure;
  • AI and cleaner production;
  • Automated and green systems;
  • AI and additive manufacturing;
  • Smart cities;
  • Digital twins and sustainability;
  • AI and green transportation;
  • AI and cleaner engineering;
  • AI and responsible consumption;
  • AI and cleaner materials.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

You may choose our Joint Special Issue in Sustainability.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. AI 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 1200 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.
