Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are currently running a Special Issue entitled “Digitalized Industrial Production Systems and Industry 4.0, Volume II”, to be published in the open access journal Processes. All of the papers may be submitted immediately or at any point until this deadline as papers will be published on an ongoing basis.

The present Special Issue aims to present up-to-date information on recent scientific advances in the digitalization of industrial production systems and in the application of Industry 4.0 concepts. Real applications of the present topics are highly encouraged, as they would greatly inspire future application of innovative research.

Papers dealing with the following topics are especially sought (although the Special Issue is not strictly limited to these):

  • Industrial CPS and smart manufacturing;
  • Architecture design and analysis;
  • Industrial IoT and factory of things and Internet of Things;
  • Modeling and control for cyberphysical systems;
  • Edge computing, fog computing, and IoT/IoE;
  • Machine-to-machine (M2M)/device-to-device communications and IoT/IoE;
  • Cloud-IoT/IoE cyberphysical systems;
  • Cyberphysical system architectures;
  • Human factors and humans in the loop in CPS;
  • The role of CPS in Industry 4.0;
  • The role of the IoT in Industry 4.0;
  • The role of industrial agents in Industry 4.0;
  • Design methodology, middlewares, principles, infrastructures, and tools for the IIoT;
  • Application of CPS in smart domains (e.g., manufacturing, agriculture, building);
  • Industrial applications of multi-agent systems;
  • Industrial agents in industry.

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. Processes 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 2000 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.
