Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 5th IEEE International Conference on Applied System Innovation 2019 (IEEE ICASI 2019, https://2019.icasi-conf.net/) will be held in Fukuoka, Japan on April 11–15, 2019, and will provide a communication platform for researchers in the field of educational innovations. This conference aims to enable interdisciplinary collaboration between educators and experts from other areas in the academic and industrial fields, as well as international networking.

Sustainability is an international and cross-disciplinary scholarly, open-access journal of environmental, cultural, economic, and social sustainability of human beings, which provides an advanced forum for studies related to sustainability and sustainable development. It publishes reviews, regular research papers, communications, and short notes, and there is no restriction on the length of the papers.

The main goal of this Special Issue is to publish selected papers from “The 5th IEEE International Conference on Applied System Innovation 2019 (TIKI IEEE ICASI 2019)”. Our aim is to discover new scientific knowledge relevant to green technology, IT-based intelligent electrical/mechanical systems, mechanics, human–computer interaction (HCI), and design innovations. We invite investigators interested in systems design innovations to contribute their original research articles to this special collection.

The potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • green technology;
  • healthcare;
  • Multimedia systems;
  • Network operating system (NOS);
  • Smart electromechanical system analysis and design;
  • Computer-aided methods for mechanical design procedure and manufacture;
  • Internet technology on mechanical system innovation;
  • Various computational topics of methodologies and procedures of design;
  • Machine diagnostics and reliability;
  • Smart sensors, actuators, and materials;
  • Intelligent mechanical manufacturing system;
  • Human–computer interactions (HCI);
  • Virtual, augmented, and mixed reality;
  • Cross-cultural design;
  • Social computing and social media;
  • Design, user experience, and usability;
  • Learning and collaboration technologies;
  • Augmented cognition;
  • HCI in games;
  • HCI for cybersecurity, privacy, and trust;
  • Human aspects of IT for the aged population;
  • Distributed, ambient, and pervasive interactions;
  • Universal access in HCI;
  • Human interface and management of information;
  • Visual design in educational innovation;
  • Film and television in educational innovation;
  • Comic and animation in educational innovation;
  • Video games in educational innovation;
  • Arts and technology in educational innovation.
