There are various mobility scenarios for users, such as along streets or within buildings, where context-related data are of key importance to offer a personalized use of ICT solutions. As a concrete example, a user approaching a specific building in a university campus would like to receive notifications of the classes being held there, or a person moving within a museum would like to be advised of the points of interest in the approaching rooms so as to plan their visit according to their interests. However, within the context of such ubiquitous and pervasive systems, it is possible to face certain problems and troubles caused by the presence of unreliable information, characterized by a certain degree of uncertainty and indecision. The position information is typically computed by a positioning system, and characterized by a certain amount of error. Such an error can determine a wrong computation of the user’s trajectory, causing wrong contextual information being used and incorrect data being provided to the user. The user may use this incorrect data to make wrong decisions. Besides, user inputs to such systems are never precise and numerical, but always vague and expressed in natural language. This demands the introduction of a certain intelligence within the system to manage subjective user inputs and untrustable contextual information. Such a needed computational intelligence may encompass fuzzy and rough set theory, evolutionary and smart computing, as well as approximate reasoning. However, these methods should not be hosted only within the cloud, but closer to the user devices, according to fog/edge computing, to device-intelligent environments dealing with a large amount of interacting nodes and/or generated volumes of data.
Computational Intelligence and Intelligent Content (CIIC) intends to bring together academic researchers and industrial practitioners to report progress in the development of Computational Intelligence and Intelligent Contents. As such, the focus of this Special Issue is related to the methods of Computational Intelligence and Intelligent Contents applied to fog/edge computing, with a focus on its applications in intelligent contents paradigms. We are soliciting contributions on (but not limited to) the following topics of interest (to be possibly extended and/or modified):
- Computational Intelligence
- Applied Soft Computing and Fuzzy Logic and Artificial Neural Networks
- Intelligent Contents Security and Cyber-Security
- Model Driven Architecture and Meta-Modeling
- Multimedia Contents Processing and Retrieval
- Sensors and Networks (wireless ad hoc N/W, Vehicular N/W)
- Big Data, Intelligence Information Processing
- Convergence / Complex Contents, Smart Learning
- Culture Design, Universal Design, UI/UX, Interaction Design and Information Theory
- Intelligent Contents Design Management, Methodology and Design theory
- Intelligent Media Contents Convergence / Complex Media
- Social media and collective intelligence

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. Sensors 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 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.
