Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Pervasive systems, intelligent algorithms, and networks are emerging fields of research in computer sciences. For example, pervasive computing explores the role of computing in the physical world by developing algorithms and technologies, including wearable computers, wireless sensor networking, Internet of Things platforms, wireless charging technology, and so on. However, this development continues to present deep challenges for experts and raises a number of interesting and undiscovered algorithmic issues; traditional techniques are not sufficient to solve these problems in the right way.

This Special Issue is devoted to the exploitation of new algorithmic issues and revolutionary paradigm in pervasive systems, intelligent algorithms, and networks for next-generation IT applications. The topics of interest to this Special Issue cover the scope of the 15th International Symposium on Pervasive Systems, Algorithms and Networks (https://grid.chu.edu.tw/ispan2018/).

Extended versions of selected papers presented at ISPAN 2018 are invited, but this call for papers is fully open to all who want to contribute by submitting a relevant research manuscript.

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.
