Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Risk management has long been an important area of engineering, environmental and health research, but has become even more of a focus today due to the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic.   

Among the risk factors, quantitative and qualitative parameters can be observed as well, and these kinds of systems are full of uncertainty and subjectivity in the data and in evaluation process. The above characteristics justify the use of soft computation methods, especially fuzzy logic-based models.

In many cases, real-time risk management is required, where the short reaction time has vital importance. However, due to the large number of risk parameters and the complexity of their context result in the complexity of the model, which should be handled adequately. Consequently, for the application of different reduction techniques, anytime algorithms are essential. 

This Special Issue invites original contributions, new developments of classical results, and advanced topics of high potential for future research and applications in different field of risk management using fuzzy models.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Risk management and risk assessment in any field;
  • Multicriteria decision making;
  • Predictive models;
  • Hybrid risk assessment or risk management models;
  • Real-time risk assessment and management;
  • Complexity reduction techniques in fuzzy models.

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. 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 1600 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.
