Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Both fuzzy logic and grey systems theory have been used over the years for modeling and improving the decision-making process within various applications from the economic field. Because of the competitive environment in which the economic agents act, the need for new and more applicable methods and techniques arise, in order to properly assist the decision-maker in selecting the best alternative, adapt to the market, ensure its business’ sustainability, or increase its economic performance.

The Special Issue invites original research papers that address new applications of fuzzy logic and grey systems theory in the decision-making process, in order to enhance or to produce new and flexible methodologies that can be used for properly and realistically modelling a variety of concrete situations related to decision-making. Also, the authors are encouraged to submit papers addressing the state-of-the-art and recent advancements in the areas, providing useful guidelines for future research directions.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Agent-based modeling
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Applications of fuzzy techniques
  • Big data representation and analysis
  • Computational theories/intelligence
  • Consumer behavior
  • Decision-making
  • Fault monitoring and diagnosis
  • Fuzzy data analysis
  • Fuzzy decision making
  • Fuzzy logic
  • Fuzzy systems
  • Grey forecasting models
  • Grey incidence analysis
  • Grey systems theory and its applications
  • Hybrid artificial intelligent models
  • Knowledge-based systems
  • Model-based systems and multi-agent systems
  • Multi-criteria decision making
  • Natural language processing
  • Risk management
  • Scalability and performance of fuzzy algorithms
  • Systems analysis

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. Sci is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1200 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.
