Recent advances in control and soft computing systems have brought new levels of real-life applications in a wide range of areas, including control of industrial systems, internet of things (IoT), cyber-physical systems, smart grids, power and energy systems, biomedical engineering, and so on. The complexity and amount of data underlying the industrial processes have increased during the recent years, mainly with the advent of the industry 4.0 paradigm, thus requiring advanced strategies to cope with them. Soft computing techniques, as opposed to traditional computing, have been demonstrated to be a useful tool to translate the data and complexity of modern industrial systems into useful information, which can be, for example, used to help to process control and optimization, and process understanding.
This Special Issue intends to disseminate the recent developments on the topics of process control and soft computing, with an emphasis on, but not limited to, industrial systems. This being a multidisciplinary Special Issue, papers that have as main topic advanced techniques for control and soft computing algorithms are welcome, as well applications on:
- Modern control in the various industries;
- Computational intelligence methodologies for intelligent control and identification;
- Failure detection and predictive maintenance;
- Automatic decision making;
- Soft/virtual sensors;
- Internet of things (IoT);
- Cyber-physical systems;
- Smart grids;
- Intelligent robotics;
- Human–robot interaction;
- Power and energy systems;
- Smart manufacturing;
- Biomedical engineering.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 1500 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.
