We are inviting submissions to our Special Issue entitled “Swarm Intelligence and Swarm Robotics: Latest Advances and Prospects”.
Distributed autonomous systems provide multiple economic advantages. A promising way to manage these distributed systems is through the utilization of swarm intelligence. However, designing fully distributed and autonomous systems remains a challenging open problem since the global system performance is difficult to predict. The problem becomes even more challenging since it is multi-objective in nature.
In this Special Issue, we invite submissions exploring cutting-edge research and recent advances in swarm intelligence and swarm robotics which include, but are not limited to, the following topics: surveillance systems, distributed systems, modelling and simulation, cooperative control, swarm intelligence, swarms of drones, multi-agent systems, self-organization, robot formation control, distributed machine learning, collective mapping, and UAV traffic management (UTM).
Both theoretical and experimental studies are welcome, as well as comprehensive reviews and survey papers. We look forward to receiving submissions of your high-quality research work.

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. 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 2300 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.
