Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 5th IEEE International Conference on Applied System Innovation 2019 (IEEE ICASI 2019, https://2019.icasi-conf.net/) will be held in Fukuoka, Japan on April 11–15, 2019. It will provide a unified communication platform for a wide range of topics. This Special Issue on “Selected Papers from TIKI IEEE ICASI 2019” is expected to select excellent papers presented at TIKI IEEE ICASI 2019 regarding the topic of “Applied System Innovation”. Mechanical engineering and design innovations are both academic and practical engineering fields, which involve systematic technological materialization through scientific principles and engineering designs. Technological innovation through mechanical engineering includes IT-based intelligent mechanical systems, mechanics and design innovations, and applied materials in nanosciences and nanotechnology. The main goal of this Special Issue is to discover new scientific knowledge relevant to IT-based intelligent mechanical systems, mechanics and design innovations, and applied materials in nanosciences and nanotechnology. We invite investigators interested in applied system innovation to contribute their original research articles to this Special Issue. Potential topics include but are not limited to:

  • Intelligent mechanical manufacturing systems;
  • Mathematical problems on mechanical system designs;
  • Smart electromechanical system analysis and design;
  • Applied materials in nanosciences and nanotechnology;
  • Computer-aided methods for mechanical design procedure and manufacture;
  • Computer and human–machine interaction;
  • Internet Technology on mechanical system innovation;
  • Machine diagnostics and reliability;
  • Human–machine interaction/virtual reality and entertainment.

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 System Innovation is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
