This Special Issue focuses on smart shipbuilding technology. The production technology of ships and marine structures has developed over the past 30 years by applying new construction methods and applying CAD/CAM/CAE/ERP technologies. In recent years, smart manufacturing technology based on artificial intelligence and big data analysis has grown tremendously in all industries. The development of smart manufacturing technology requires a new transformation of traditional shipbuilding and offshore production technology based on traditional production methods. Indeed, smart manufacturing technology will present opportunities for the growth of the shipbuilding industry. However, this trend introduces new challenges in terms of smart manufacturing technology and system integration suitable for the shipbuilding and offshore industries. Discussions are needed on the system configuration for proper use of smart manufacturing technology and practical application methods for ship production.
In this context, this Special Issue aims to become an open platform to share knowledge about progress and challenges about smart shipbuilding and smart shipyards. It particularly seeks creative contributions regarding new ideas, recent developments, or mature studies addressing both theoretical and aspects.

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 2000 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.
