Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Real-world systems are typically dynamic, in the sense that they evolve with time. Dynamic systems theory and its application in highly varied contexts prove its usefulness in supporting the proper management of a large variety of systems in numerous fields, ranging from engineering to economics, including ecology.  It is evident that system dynamics modeling can support managers with powerful tools for sense-making, analysis, forecasting, and decision-making processes.  As a matter of fact, increasing organizational and operational efficiency is one of the main strategic goals when analyzing and managing every system, as well as ensuring the robustness and resilience of the proposed solution, due to the inevitable uncertainties characterizing the system evolution over time. Efficient and resilient dynamic systems have recently attracted more and more attention due to the need for increased resiliency of critical infrastructures to high-impact and low-frequency critical events. The aim of this Special Issue is to address key concerns on how to manage, monitor, analyze, evaluate, and control dynamic systems in an efficient and resilient manner. The research involves but is not limited to electronic systems, communication systems, buildings, transportation, mobility, energy systems, water system management, and security.  Submitted contributions, in the form of full-length articles or short communications, are expected to provide an insight into this research field, proposing novel approaches, or integrating existing methods to gain new findings, investigating new issues, and presenting theoretical results or application studies. Survey papers highlighting recent trends and future research directions are also welcome. Potential topics in the dynamical systems efficiency and resilience areas include but are not limited to the following:

  • Dynamic systems;
  • Decision support systems;
  • Control tools;
  • Multiobjective optimization methods;
  • Modeling techniques;
  • Uncertainty modeling;
  • Robust optimization.

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. Electronics 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 1800 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.
