Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to submit your latest research to our Special Issue titled "Fault Tolerant Algorithms and Data Structures". In recent decades, computer systems have grown increasingly complex, with numerous hardware and software components, and this complexity raises the likelihood of component failures, which can disrupt entire systems. Such disruptions can lead to the unavailability of essential services like business websites and cloud platforms, or halt industrial operations, resulting in significant financial losses.

Therefore, it is crucial that robust systems and fail-safe hardware and software components are developed to mitigate these issues. These advancements invariably heavily rely on fault-tolerant algorithms and data structures, which form the foundation of dependable systems.

We welcome submissions that explore new approaches, methodologies, and empirical findings in the field of fault tolerance in computer systems. Your contributions will enhance our understanding and implementation of fault tolerance, ultimately leading to more resilient technological infrastructures.

Topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Design and analysis of fault-tolerant algorithms;
  • Fault-tolerant data structures;
  • Resilient networks;
  • Error-correcting codes;
  • Coding theory;
  • Fault tolerance in operating systems;
  • Robust machine learning and artificial intelligence;
  • Fault-tolerant algorithms for distributed systems.

Manuscript Submission Information

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. Algorithms 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 1600 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.
