Call for Papers (I am a Guest Editor for the Following Journals/Special Issues)


This special issue seeks high-quality and original contributions that advance the concept, methods, and theories by going insight into the dark side of the online information and address the mechanism and strategies to overcome the root cause of fake new through Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Deep Learning (DL). Thanks to the latest innovation in Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning, which gives deeper knowledge based on previous history. Therefore, keeping the view of the latest innovations, we believe that this is a topic of challenges faced by multidisciplinary, i.e., computer science, marketing, management, biological science, etc.

Special Issue “Advances in Machine Learning and Mathematical Modeling for Optimization Problems”

https://www.mdpi.com/journal/mathematics/special_issues/Mach_Lear_Math_Mod_Optim_Probl

Important Dates

Manuscript due                      15 June 2022

Aims and Scope

Machine learning and deep learning have made tremendous progress over the last decade and have become the de facto standard across a wide range of image, video, text, and sound processing domains, from object recognition to image generation. More recently, deep learning and deep reinforcement learning have begun to develop end-to-end training to solve more complex operation research and combinatorial optimization problems, such as covering problems, vehicle routing problems, traveling salesmen problems, scheduling problems, and other complex problems requiring more general simulations. These methods also sometimes include classic search and optimization algorithms to machine learning, such as Monte Carlo Tree Search in AlphaGO.

Special Issue “Smart Energy Management for Hybrid Vehicles Systems”

https://segcjournal.com/journal/special_detail/1011

Important Dates

Manuscript due                      25 Aug 2022

Journal of Smart Environments and Green Computing (JSEGC) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal.

Aims and Scope

Energy management is becoming a rising component of industry strategy; especially vehicle companies are looking closely at their energy profiles to distinguish chances for economical cost reduction, decarbonization, elasticity, and resilience. They adopt energy management techniques and weigh onsite resources, such as renewable energy and energy storage. Meanwhile, personal internal combustion engine cars are among the key contributors to global warming and suffer from limited fuel resources. As the vehicle is of high importance for modern life, efforts are being made to make vehicles more sustainable. Until now, numerous power systems for hybrid vehicles have been under consideration. It is likely that several solutions, including batteries, supercapacitors, and fuel cell-based solutions.

In this SI, we are receiving contributions related to Smart Energy Management for Hybrid Vehicles Systems. Important keywords include smart energy, electric vehicle, hybrid electric vehicle, energy management, energy storage (batteries, super capacitors, fuel cells, and internal combustion engine), recharge, autonomous driving, driving cycles, and energy need prediction.
