Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to submit your latest research in the area of applied and computational topology to this Special Issue, “Topological Data Analysis”. We are looking for new and innovative approaches to use methods from algebraic topology in data analysis, statistics, and machine learning. This Special Issue is intended to feature a balance between theoretical developments in topological data analysis and practical applications. Topics include but are not limited to persistence theory, multidimensional persistence, design of filtered simplicial complexes from data, summaries of persistence modules, design of new algorithms to efficiently use topological insights in data science applications, as well as a broad spectrum of applications of topological methods in robotics, biology, medicine, and social sciences.

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.
