As we all know, uncertainty is absolutely while certainty is relative. In economic and management systems, uncertainty is inevitably unavoidable, whether it is subjective or objective. With the increasing digitalization of society, we have entered an era of “big data”. However, uncertainty is still the inherent property of big data. In the light of uncertainty and data, a trend of data-driven optimization has been developed. This Special Issue “Sustainability of Economic and Management Systems: Perspectives of Uncertainty and Data Driven Optimization” will address both model and data-driven optimization methods for economic and management systems. The broad scope of this Special Issue is hoped to encourage submissions from several disciplines. Formulations of objective and subjective uncertainty, model-driven optimization methods and data-driven optimization approaches are especially encouraged. However, any research that falls under the scope of this call for papers is most welcome.
