Call for Papers

■Background
Frontiers of Engineering Management is an international research journal sponsored by the Chinese Academy of Engineering. It is published quarterly in English in both print and online versions. Frontiers of Engineering Management provides a high-quality international platform for academic researchers, industry professionals and other constituent communities in the broad field of engineering management to impart and share the latest research results and knowledge in the form of research articles, reviews, letters and comments. The journal strives to promote the advancement of the science of engineering management, the improvement of the practice of engineering management, and the preparation of researchers and practitioners to address contemporary and future challenges in engineering management. The topics covered by the journal include general, specialty and cross-disciplinary studies in engineering management, both theoretical and applied, and studies related to engineering management education worldwide. 

■Aims and Scope
Urban and infrastructure systems are of fundamental importance to the realization of various urban functions, such as transport, communication and healthcare, and essential for the sustainable development of cities worldwide. With the continuous advancement of urbanization, especially in China, an increasing number of large-scale projects, mega-projects, super-projects, complex engineering systems, urban systems, super-cities, and urban agglomerations, which have ever increasing structural and functional scales and complexities, are seen worldwide. Consequently, the planning, engineering and operation of cities and infrastructures are faced with a variety of emerging and management challenges that stem from the needs for new theories, models and technologies to build efficient, affordable and resilient urban and infrastructure systems. Driven by such needs, research related to the engineering and management of cities and infrastructures has been evolving fast in recent years, with the proposition and development of various methodologies and tools that aim to address the aforementioned challenges. This special issue in Frontiers of Engineering Management is intending to provide an opportunity for exploring new ideas and disseminating latest advancements on the theme “City and Infrastructure Engineering and Management”. High-quality submissions are invited for the special issue that address prominent challenges pertaining to the understanding, analysis and improvement of engineering and management of cities and infrastructures.
Topics to be covered include, but are not limited to:
●Theories and methods for engineering and management of cities and infrastructures
●Intelligent design, operation and maintenance of cities and infrastructures
●Big data analytics and computing of urban and infrastructure systems
●Digital twin in the engineering and management of cities and infrastructures
●Risk and resilience management of urban and infrastructure systems
●Global best practices in city and infrastructure engineering and management
●Public policy for city and infrastructure engineering and management
