The recent advances in digital and information and communication technologies (ICT), such as industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), big data analytics, artificial intelligence (AI), extended reality (XR), cyber-physical systems (CPS), and digital twins, facilitated the development of a new manufacturing paradigm, known as intelligent manufacturing. In view of the upcoming Industry 5.0, human operators are becoming the center of attention. With the integration of AI, CPS are transformed in order to enable human–cyber integration and the generation of human–cyber-physical systems (HCPS), in an attempt improve working environments by further reducing uncertainties due to the presence of human operators. Furthermore, with the integration of HCPS, new opportunities arise for the utilization and synthesis of heterogeneous data derived from cross-domains and cross-layers. Thus, intelligent manufacturing systems will be able to percept, analyze, and assist engineers in decision-making and control processes. Beyond that, due to the nature of AI frameworks, intelligent manufacturing systems are also capable of learning, adapting, and generating knowledge.
Therefore, this Special Issue will gather research studies which explore the opportunities and challenges arising from the integration of cutting-edge technologies in modern manufacturing and production systems and networks, as well as studies which discuss the design, development, and implementation of HCPS frameworks for keeping human-in-the-loop.

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. Machines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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.
