The development and operation of software-intensive complex systems is becoming more challenging than ever. The implicit need for the continuous delivery of new products and services (cyber-physical systems) in a timely and cost-effective manner is a cornerstone for the realization of Industry 4.0, especially in the case of safety-critical systems equipped with non-deterministic functions. The digitalization of engineering (DE) is also gaining momentum in the systems and software engineering discipline, with the aim of shifting the paradigm to the design and operation of these complex systems incorporating multiple engineering disciplines. In this context, interoperability emerges as a key enabler to build collaborative engineering environments in which people, processes, methods, and tools are perfectly synchronized to build complex systems making use of methods and techniques such as digital twins, simulation, model-based systems engineering, service-oriented computing, etc. The need of communicating and exchanging data, information, and knowledge between organizations, tools, and people is also increasing. To enable this, it is necessary to establish new mechanisms that can support engineers to easily represent and organize domain knowledge, integrate and exchange data, expose and consume functionalities, and manage the engineering process under a standardized and interoperable environment. This Special Issue aims to bring together research works and real-world use cases, scenarios, and approaches focused on the improvement of the software and systems engineering process through interoperable mechanisms applied to the design and operation of software-intensive systems.

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.
