Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The objective of this Special Issue is to cover the impact of artificial intelligence and automation in the fight against COVID-19 based on fuzzy systems and data mining. The opportunities of growth in the field will impact the education plans of electrical engineering departments and the expected trajectory in the academic life of students as well as the future goals of researchers toward wellness in the societies.

Hence, the aim of the Special Issue is to identify and study advanced issues related to applying intelligent techniques and information technologies that automate and integrate data analysis systems and optimize the processes of innovation in combatting the COVID-19 pandemic and similar disasters in the future.

This Special Issue is expected to include recent work in theories and practices of information systems and technology management based on fuzzy systems and data mining. In particular, we would like to study the impact of social distance up-taking on the servitization and smartization of industries, engineering education, and medical practices, besides the consequences on the speedy growth of the application of the artificial intelligence, and the widening of automation and industry in societies.

This Special Issue will not only cover selected excellent papers from The 8th International Conference on Fuzzy Systems and Data Mining (FSDM 2022)(November 4-7, 2022, Xiamen, China)(http://www.fsdmconf.org/) and The 3rd International Conference on Modern Management based on Big Data (MMBD2022) (August 15th-18th, 2022, Seoul, South Korea) (http://www.mmbdconf.org/), but also welcome external submissions on related topics.

We assume that the target of this Special Issue will be researchers both from the academia and industry. Hence, we invite business managers and engineers, executives and managers of the universities, plus the graduate students and researchers for participation in the Special Issue.   

Topics include but are not limited to the:

  1. Data mining technologies;
  2. Statistical methods and informatics for large data;
  3. Applications of fuzzy systems and neural networks, convolutional neural networks;
  4. Smart data analysis, smart data fusion;
  5. New achievements in dynamic programming, clouding and optimization;
  6. Medical imaging, chest images, CT, etc.;
  7. Innovation in distant education systems;
  8. Smartization of industrial processes;
  9. New platforms for the remote style of life–work balance;
  10. Smart Business management systems;
  11. Infection risk analysis;
  12. Data analysis methods for product development, maintenance, quality improvement;
  13. Automation of industries, internet of things, interconnections of sensors;
  14. Smart methods for internal and external relation improvement of the industries;
  15. Real-time operations;
  16. Data-based advertisement, data-based logistics and delivery;
  17. Smart sales, customer targeting, business optimization, customer needs identification;
  18. Data security, cybersecurity;
  19. Market trend identification;
  20. Robots, unmanned aerial vehicles, service robots, service humanoid;
  21. Remote sensing, virtualization, data decentralization;
  22. Risk management for agile operations;
  23. Data based supply chain, data-based value chain.

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. Mathematics 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.
