Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The modeling and optimization of processes or products is today one of the most outstanding points for the advancement of today’s society. Numerical modeling and machine learning techniques are undoubtedly among the most powerful methods and techniques for modeling and optimizing processes and products, reducing their cost of design and subsequent manufacturing.

The main aim of this Special Issue on “Numerical Modeling and Machine Learning Techniques” is to present new knowledge and trends using numerical modeling or machine learning techniques for modeling and optimizing processes or products. Numerical modeling techniques of interest in this Special Issue include but are not limited to finite element analysis, the finite volume method, the finite difference method, the boundary element method, discrete element methods, multibody simulation, and computational fluid dynamics. Classification, regression, and optimization algorithms could be considered in developing machine learning or Artificial Intelligence techniques.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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. Energies 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.
