In the literature, lots of optimization models and algorithms have been presented to deal with the operation and control issues in various domains such as intelligent manufacturing, production scheduling, transportation routing, service arrangement, and space exploration. Extant related works have promoted the development of conventional optimization and control theories, and quite a few of them have been widely used in the real world.

With the emergence of recent information technologies including Wireless Sensing Networks, Internet of Things IOT, Cloud Computing, and Distributed Computing, people can obtain and process far more than what they could, generally within shorter time and with fewer costs. In addition, the application of the information technologies has been bringing about new challenges. One growing challenge is the Big Data problem. Although the Big Data problems and the like may provide chances for people to explore new rules and laws of the universe, they will become catastrophes if not well dealt with.

Thus, people should find new ways and tools in various domains to cope with the emerging challenges. Without exception, extant optimization models and algorithms need to be extended or reformulated for dealing with the reshaped operation and control issues by new information technologies.

This special issue is intended to present optimization models and algorithms for dealing with operation and control issues based on the emerging information technologies. It also aims at promoting the exchanges and interactions between investigators across different fields. We solicit high quality, original research articles as well as review articles focused on models and algorithms for operation and control issues with advanced information technologies.

We received 67 manuscripts in total, made strict preliminary and peer reviews for all the works, and finally accepted 18 papers for the special issue. The included papers can be grouped into five specific categories, that is, 1 models and algorithms with advanced information technologies, 2 healthcare related models and algorithms, 3 models and algorithms of production or delivery, 4 evaluation and classification models, and 5 control models and algorithms.

The first category models and algorithms with advanced information technologies includes four papers. The paper -Assessing Partnership Alternatives in an IT Network Employing Analytical Methods- by V. R. Salamat et al. presents an optimization model for the collaborative network building process in the IT industry. In the paper -Exploring an Interactive Value-Adding Data-Driven Model of Consumer Electronics Supply Chain Based on Least Squares Support Vector Machine,- X.
