==Scope and Objective==

In the current Big Data era, digital information pervades most Complex Systems. This is especially due to the wide integration of the Internet of Things in several sectors. This integration gives the opportunity to enhance business performance and achieve business competitiveness. Such opportunities are now pushed forward by the rise of Digital Twins that have become more affordable and promise to drive the future of complex systems.

A Digital Twin (DT) is a digital representation of a physical entity, system, or event. It mirrors a distinctive object, process, building, or human, regardless of whether that thing is tangible or non-tangible in the real world. DTs can leverage the advancement in Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Cognitive Computing, Edge and Cloud Computing, and Augmented and Virtual Reality, to offer a great amount of business potential by predicting the future instead of analyzing the past of complex systems allowing us to evolve towards ex-ante business practices. To achieve these benefits, we must face the following challenges: accurate representation of physical objects; automatic evolution in real-time; runtime connectivity; process collaboration; conflict detection and resolving; human interaction; safety and security. In doing so, we must provide conceptualizations of DTs, define new DT engineering methodology, develop user-friendly software for the development of DT solutions, and foster the adoption of DT within complex systems.

The objective of this Special Issue is to gather empirical, experimental, methodological, and theoretical research reporting original and unpublished results contributing to the definition, design, implementation, and application of DT, shedding light on the continuous enhancement of complex systems integrating DTs, and that present possible solutions to open challenges, that proposes software solutions, practical experiences, use-cases, and case studies.
