We invite you to submit your latest research in the area of the development of scheduling algorithms to this Special Issue, “Algorithms for Scheduling Problems”. We are looking for new and innovative approaches for solving scheduling problems exactly or approximately. High-quality papers are solicited to address both theoretical and practical issues of scheduling algorithms. Submissions are welcome both for traditional scheduling problems, as well as new applications. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, sequencing in single- and multi-stage systems with additional constraints such as setup times or costs, precedence constraints, batching/lot sizing, resource constraints, etc., and single- or multi-criteria objectives as well as to a broad spectrum of scheduling problems in emerging applications, such as sports, healthcare, or energy management.Prof. Dr. Frank Werner

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.
