Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We are soliciting high-quality original research papers (and significant work-in-progress papers) describing any aspects of multilevel algorithmic approaches, as well as the design and implementation of solutions and systems in which the multilevel approach plays one of the central roles.

Many interpretations of multilevel algorithms exist in different domains. In this Special Issue, we refer to those multilevel (also known as multiscale, multigrid inspired, and multiresolution) algorithms whose characteristic features are related to creating and leveraging a hierarchy of coarse problems, each representing the original problem at different coarse levels with fewer degrees of freedom. The degrees of freedom could be expressed as, but are not limited to variables, dimensionality, or time steps.

All research areas in which multilevel algorithms are relevant will be considered, however, submissions in graph algorithms, machine learning, network science, optimization, numerical methods, and the high-performance implementation of multilevel approaches are especially encouraged.

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.
