Special Issue Information
The water supply, distribution and sewage systems are often scarcely efficient and energy demanding. The increasing demand and the decreasing availability of water, due to the climate change, the economic development and the increase of population, push to a more intelligent use of the resource, in order to save water and decrease the energy demand of the water industry.
The aim of this special issue is to collect new studies to investigate innovative solutions for the integrated management of water systems. Among the others, new studies on the following topics are welcome:
- New devices to save energy and water
- New control techniques/algorithms of devices/systems for an efficient management of the water utilities
- New design and or operation solutions for a more intelligent use of the water resource
- Smart management of the water utilities, involving artificial intelligence and/or IoT solutions
- Multidisciplinary studies investigating the water/energy/food/carbon nexus and the global effect of local initiatives
- Life cycle assessments and circular economy studies to investigate the social and environmental impact of the water systems and the benefits resulting from a smart management

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Water 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 2200 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.
