Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Communication networks are widely used and are becoming even more ubiquitous as they evolve to connect not only people, but also a multitude of non-human actors, such as computers, sensors, actuators, various machines, vehicles, appliances, and many others, a practically infinite number of things. This trend clearly points to networks that can grow to be extremely large and complicated. As a consequence, efficient and scalable algorithms to support network operation will likely become even more important than they already are today. This Special Issue is devoted to algorithms and protocols that support the operation or design of large networks and/or that are motivated by networking issues.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Routing algorithms for various types of networks;
  • Algorithms/protocols for congestion control;
  • Medium access control (MAC) protocols;
  • Algorithms for network design and dimensioning;
  • Designing, operating, and maintaining virtual substructures, such as network slices and virtual subnetworks;
  • Modeling very large networks via novel mathematical methods;
  • Approaches for cross-layer design;
  • Optimization methods for network-inspired tasks;
  • Graph models and graph algorithms motivated by networking problems;
  • Models for the systematic analysis and design of the network architecture.

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.
