Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Due to industrial automation, the integration of Cyber-Physical Production Systems (CPPS) with Industries 4.0 and 5.0 has emerged as a transformative paradigm. Industry 4.0 represents the fourth industrial revolution, characterized by the fusion of digital technologies, data-driven decision making, and the seamless interaction between physical and virtual components, while Industry 5.0 represents the reintroduction of sustainability, human-centricity, and resilience within manufacturing. The concept of Cyber-Physical Production Systems lies at the heart of innovation, which seamlessly integrate the physical processes of manufacturing with advanced digital technologies. This integration not only enhances efficiency and productivity, but also introduces new frontiers for innovation and customization in industrial processes. This Special Issue explores the fundamental principles and implications of incorporating CPPS into the broader frameworks of Industries 4.0 and 5.0, highlighting the synergies that drive industrial advancement.

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 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. Applied Sciences 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 2400 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.
