Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Thanks to technological advances, recent years have seen cities undergo a profound transformation, with significant improvements in sustainability and in the services offered by local governments and other municipal entities. This transformation has resulted in a high investment in resources and research projects focused on the urban environment. However, most of the so-called smart cities are simply cities that have undertaken several smart projects. Given that, nowadays, vast amounts of data are continually generated, and the challenge of a city that strives to become smart lies in identifying intelligent and adaptive means of combining the generated information, so that valuable knowledge may be extracted. Sensorization has been integral to the collection of data. The knowledge extracted from the data analyzed by IoT and smart city platforms optimizes the governments’ decision making and resource consumption. This Special Issue invites researchers to submit high-quality original studies addressing the topic of Adaptive Smart Areas in Sustainable Smart Cities through the application of edge computing systems, hybrid computing service systems, federated learning, or artificial learning in multi-agent system architectures.

The Special Issue mainly receives papers from SSCt2023 (International Conference on Sustainable Smart Cities and Territories), 21–23 June 2023, Manizales, Colombia. Event link: https://www.mdpi.com/journal/electronics/events/15511.

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. 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 2000 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.
