Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

At present, data have immense value in the digital world. All computer-based systems gather any kind of data, and companies make use of them to get a huge value out of them, in many different senses. The amount of stored data is continuously growing, and there is a need for efficient techniques to allow getting the most out of it. We focus in this Special Issue on recent advances on data-based optimization, knowledge extraction, and visualization techniques, focused on the enhancement of the sustainability of a system, product, process, etc. Interesting applications of sustainability enhancement can be found in applications belonging to fields such as logistics, mobility, industry, networks, (mobile) computing, or smart cities, among many others.

This Special Issue aims at attracting outstanding research works proposing the application of tools based on novel techniques in fields such as:

- Evolutionary algorithms;
- Heuristics;
- Exact approaches;
- Single-/multiobjective optimization;
- Parallel computing;
- Machine learning;
- Deep learning;
- Big Data techniques;
- Data analytics;
- Visualization and computer graphics.

The topics of interest for the applications are, among others:

- Industry 4.0;
- Logistics;
- Dynamic/static networks;
- Smart cities;
- Intelligent transportation systems;
- Smart Grid;
- Scheduling;
- Computing, from small portable devices to large datacenters.

All high-quality submitted papers related to the listed topics will be considered for publication in this Special Issue, provided they are recommended for publication after the review process. All manuscript submissions and reviews will be handled by the MDPI submission system https://susy.mdpi.com/. All papers should be prepared according to the MDPI Guide for Authors.
