Special Issue "Data Compression Algorithms and their Applications"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2019).
Data compression is classic research area in computer science focusing on the efficient storage and communication of data. Data compression is ubiquitous throughout science and engineering and essentially any data of non-trivial size is stored or communicated in compressed form on any modern computer system. With rapid advances in data collection in areas such as e-commerce, astronomy, climatology, bioinformatics, and particle physics, the need for efficient data compression is stronger than ever.
We invite you to submit high quality papers to this Special Issue on “Data compression and applications”, with subjects covering the whole range from theory to applications. The following is a (non-exhaustive) list of topics of interests:
- Loss-less data compression
- Lossy data compression
- Algorithms on compressed data
- Compressed data structures
- Applications of data compression

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 1400 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.
