Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Networks are everywhere, as they allow us to simply represent the relationships among things. The analysis of networks has hence attracted a lot of attention, since the very beginning of computer science. As the size of the real-world networks has been increasing very rapidly, designing efficient algorithms that are able to deal with this huge amount of data is a continuous and fascinating challenge. We invite you to submit your latest research in the area of the design, analysis, and experimental validation of efficient network algorithms to this Special Issue, “Algorithmic Aspects of Networks”. We are looking for new and innovative approaches for solving graph problems exactly or approximately, with emphasis on the problems arising in the field of real-world network analysis. High-quality papers are solicited to address both the theoretical and practical issues of network algorithms. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, centrality measures and network ranking, community detection, information diffusion, network clustering, network embedding, network pattern matching, and structural and topological network properties. The applicative scenarios in which these algorithms could be tested include, but are not limited to, bioinformatics, computer vision, machine learning, natural language processing, pattern analysis, robotics, and web and social network analytics, with emphasis on the applications that require the analysis of really huge networks.

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.
