The aim of the special issue is to present the latest advances, problems, challenges and research results in the field of information management and system engineering, along with the links between scientific research and practical implementation.

In today's business world, the survival of industries and organisations is fully dependent on their ability to adapt to their changing environment in ways which support rapid development and the introduction of innovative products and services. Information technology and its management facilitate such activities and provide adequate resources for enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of an organisation's product development activities. Furthermore, the field of system engineering is constantly changing and growing as systems become increasingly complex.

Technology alone cannot provide solutions to all the problems involved in engineering a system. Thus a blueprint is needed to identify and define the actual problem, and to show how to effectively and efficiently develop a system that satisfies end users and all other stakeholders while organising the information that is needed to develop the right solution, and also communicating that information to all affected parties while integrating the technical and non-technical product team. Due consideration should be given to the needs of the world at large, e.g. environmental balance, social harmony and economic stability.

The primary objective of this special issue is to explore thorough, in-depth and well-focused developments in the field of information management and system engineering. The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of presented research contribution at the International Conference on Recent Advances and Applications in Computer Engineering 2017, but we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.
