Special Issue "Selected Papers from: 11th Annual International Conference on Combinatorial Optimization and Applications (COCOA'17)"
A special issue of Algorithms (ISSN 1999-4893).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2018)
Combinatorial optimization is an area of research at the intersection of applied mathematics, computer science, and operations research, which has important applications in several fields.
This Special Issue is devoted to the theoretical and experimental research of all aspects of areas of combinatorial optimization and its applications, including Algorithms and Data Structures, Approximation Algorithms, Operation Research, Communication Network Optimization, Social Networks, Computational Algebra, Graph Theory, Distributed Computational Systems, and Scheduling, etc.
The topics of interest to this Special Issue cover the scope of the COCOA 2017 Conference (http://anl.sjtu.edu.cn/cocoa2017/callforpapers.html).
Extended versions of papers presented at COCOA 2017 are sought, but this call for papers is fully open to all those who wish to contribute by submitting a relevant research manuscript.Dr. Xiaofeng Gao

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 850 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.
