Special Issue "Modelling and Optimisation of Ship Energy Systems"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 May 2020).
Interests: marine systems safety; marine engines and propulsion systems; cyber-physical and autonomous systems; advanced model-based methods; life cycle energy; and risk management
Interests: modelling; optimisation; data-driven methods; real-time monitoring; condition-based maintenance; marine engines; and propulsion systems
Stringent environmental regulations, the volatility of fuel prices, alternative fuels, the development of emerging technologies, artificial intelligence methods, big data analytics, advances on ship systems autonomy/automation, and fourth industrial revolution concepts provide ship energy system designers and operators with both challenges and opportunities, which, if appropriately addressed, will result in step changes in the way the ships energy systems are perceived today.
This Special Issue provides a platform for academics, scientists and professionals from the industry to exchange the most contemporary ideas, techniques, methods and experience in the area of ship energy systems including modelling, optimisation, control, maintenance, safety, autonomy/automation, environmental friendliness, regulatory framework and sustainability.
This Special Issue mainly intends to accommodate studies and papers presented in the 2nd International Conference on Modelling and Optimisation of Ship Energy Systems (MOSES2019) held in the period 8–10 May 2019 in Glasgow, Scotland, UK. However, taking into account the importance and impact of topics as well as the variety of academic and industial groups working worldwide in the discipline of the ship energy systems, we invite all interested authors to submit novel/original studies and reviews that advance the scientific/technical understanding of the addressed topics.

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. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
