Call for Papers – MDPI Electronics – Special Issue “Visual Analytics, Simulation, Decision Making Technologies”
With the recent rise in cutting-edge technologies such as artificial intelligence, new and unsolved societal economic challenges can be solved sophisticatedly. Disciplines such as visual analytics, simulation, data analytics, natural language processing, and image and video processing combined with the human in the interaction loop have led to new systems, methods, concepts, and architectural designs that help us to face societal challenges, e.g., climate, mobility, sustainability, smart city. Furthermore, these approaches lead to predicting likely future scenarios in the economy. These enhancements enable gathering the market relevance of upcoming technologies, analyzing the competitors and other forthcoming competitive technologies, and analyzing new markets for technologies. Thus, the aspect of sustainability plays an increasing role, even in market positioning or in the development and deployment of new technologies.
In this Special Issue, we are interested in systems, system architectures, computational techniques, methods and models, and literature reviews in the areas of analytical decision making, collaborative work, sustainability, economy, simulation, object monitoring, and behaviour detection.
From a methodological point of view, the focus is on combining technological approaches from various disciplines to provide new ways and methods for analyzing data and models and enabling novel approaches for solving societal and economic challenges. On the practical side, we are looking for algorithms, software, prototypes, and demonstrators of decision-making support with the human-in-the-loop in various application fields. Topics of interest include but are not limited to the following:
- Visual analytics and information visualization
- Artificial intelligence and machine learning
- Simulation and modeling for digital twins
- Collaboration systems and collaborative work
- Data analytics and natural language processing
- Analytical systems for mobility, transportation, and traffic
- Analytical systems for sustainability and environment
- Analytical systems for corporate foresight
- Analytical systems for smart manufacturing
- Technologies for smart city, virtual, and augmented reality applications
- Quantum and high-performance computing use
- Digital wallet and blockchain synergy
- Fault diagnosis in cyber-physical systems
- Predictive maintenance in Industry 4.0
- Object monitoring and behaviour detection

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. Electronics 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.
