Special Issue "Cyber-Physical Systems: Data Processing and Communication Architectures"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 August 2018)
Last generation computing architectures have evolved from traditional stand-alone embedded systems to complex environments, where computational elements tightly interact with physical entities, such as sensors networks and I/O devices. These systems, usually referred as cyber-physical Systems (CPS), enabled a flourishing ecosystem of architectures and platforms where smart objects, users and communication infrastructures interact to support intelligent context-aware services and applications. Smart grids, medical monitoring, smart cities, distributed pollution and tracking are just a few examples of concrete applications that are gaining attraction among industries and institutions. However, the mobility and pervasiveness requirements of such environments impose energy consumption constraints that must be met in a context of increasing computational needs, due the processing of large amounts of data coming from sensing and input devices.
This Special Issue aims at exploring emerging approaches, ideas and contributions to address the challenges in the design of energy efficient computational-centric smart objects in CPS. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Design Platforms and Tools for IoT-based ecosystems for optimizing energy/performance tradeoffs
- Deep Learning and Deep Computation for CPS
- Novel architectures for embedded low power computing in CPS
- Approximate Computing for energy-efficient applications
- Network-on-Chip Architectures
- Wireless Sensor Networks
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. Technologies 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 350 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.
