Special Issue "Distributed Computing Theory, Systems, Algorithms, and Data Structures"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 December 2020.
Interests: distributed systems and algorithms; blockchain; network, graph, sensor, and robot coordination algorithms
We invite you to submit your latest research on the broad area of distributed computing to this Special Issue, “Distributed Computing Theory, Systems, Algorithms, and Data Structures”. The goal of this Special Issue is to improve understanding of the principles and practices underlying distributed computing. We solicit high-quality original research papers on problems that naturally arise in all areas of distributed computing. We welcome research papers from all viewpoints, including theory, algorithms, systems, practice, and experimentation. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following: design and analysis of distributed algorithms; lower bounds, complexity, and impossibility results; network protocols; distributed machine learning, operating systems, databases, resource management, scheduling, fault tolerance, and reliability; self-stabilization; peer-to-peer systems; concurrency, synchronization, and consistency; multicore and multiprocessor algorithms and architectures; distributed and concurrent data structures; blockchain protocols; wireless and sensor networks; mobile and robot computing; formal methods; game theory in distributed computing; high-performance, cluster, and grid computing; distributed storage and persistence; security and cryptography; coding and biological algorithms; and experimental evaluation of distributed algorithms and systems.

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.
