Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Telecommunication systems (TCS) are playing a very important role in development of production and the economy. They are characterized by length, high-speed messaging, great branching, a high diversity of used elements, and the heterogeneity of processed information flows. As a result, the potential to implement management functions in TCS has attracted the attention of a large number of scientific researchers. Among these management functions, the functions of decision-making and planning are of the greatest complexity and higher scientific importance.

On the one hand, the increased requirements on throughput, mobility, resilience, security, and safety are imposed to management systems in modern TCS. On the other hand, the implementation of the decision-making and planning functions in modern TCS is carried out in the conditions of fuzzy and incomplete initial data, the existence of various external and internal influences, and the need to process big arrays of structured, semi-structured, and unstructured data in a limited time.

In this context, the proposed Special Issue will have to present unpublished theoretical and applied results related to the development of new approaches, models, methods, algorithms, software, and hardware for implementing the functions of decision-making and planning in modern TCS.

These results will concern a rather wide range of issues affecting the application of advanced and innovative methods of data processing, resilience, security, safety, and throughput. These results will address a fairly wide range of issues affecting the application of advanced and innovative methods for decision-making and planning in TCS.

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. Energies 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.
