Special Issue "Coding Theory and Its Application"
A special issue of Algorithms (ISSN 1999-4893).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 July 2019).
We are glad to announce the upcoming Special Issue dedicated to coding theory and its applications. This Special Issue aims to provide a unified, comprehensive view of recent advances in channel coding in the context of a broad range of both well-established and emerging applications. While historically tightly related to the problem of protecting communication links, channel codes offer solutions to a large class of challenges, spanning from the efficient storage of information over distributed network nodes to quantum computer attack-resilient encryption algorithms, protocol design for high-throughput uncoordinated medium access control, DNA storage, speeding up distributed computing tasks, and secret key generation—just to mention a few.
Researchers active in the analysis, design, and application of schemes based on channel codes are highly encouraged to submit their recent original findings.

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.
