As part of the soft computing methods applied in many data mining processes, such as data clustering, classification, forecasting analysis association rules detection, and dependency analysis, fuzzy systems play a key role. This role has recently increased, with the need in various disciplines to manage imprecise, massive, and heterogeneous data. In addition, fuzzy systems can be applied in big data mining, in which textual non-structured information, such as social data documents or image and video data must be used for retrieval purposes.
The aim of this Issue is to encourage researchers and scholars to submit original contributions concerning new approaches involving fuzzy systems, for the exploration of data in complex systems, with special reference to the novel data mining methods applied to treat massive, complex, and heterogeneous information sources.

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.
