The last two decades have witnessed an impressive growth in the amount of digital data produced in a wide spectrum of application domains. The effective exploitation of this data is of great value to science, business, government, and society, and it has been considered as one of the most important scientific challenges of the 21st century. Due to the volume, velocity, heterogeneity, and noise, dealing with big data requires a sharp paradigm shift with respect to traditional computing. Novel computational frameworks such as MapReduce and Streaming have recently established themselves as standards for big data processing, both in academia and in industry. The effective use of these frameworks requires new approaches to algorithm design. For instance, algorithmic solutions must take into account that the data are typically distributed or streamed, and in any case cannot fit in a single machine's local memory. Moreover, since exact solutions are often computationally unfeasible for very large and possibly noisy inputs, suitable tradeoffs must be sought between the accuracy of the returned solution and computational efficiency.
Despite the considerable effort that the research community has been devoting to big data algorithmics, there is a dire need for new contributions as well as efforts to clean up and systematize very recent advances in the field. This Special Issue aims at making a step in this direction by soliciting original and unpublished contributions in the area. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to) those listed below.

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 papers will be 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 1000 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.
