Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Algorithmic Game Theory combines algorithmic thinking with game-theoretic concepts. It is inherently interdisciplinary, sitting at the interface of mathematics, economics, computer science, and operations research.

Graph mining is a process in which the mining techniques are used for identifying the most important characteristics and properties of graphs. It is a very relevant field of research with applications in many different domains, from business to medicine.

This special issue solicits papers addressing original research on foundations, theory, development, analysis, and applications of algorithmic game theory and graph mining. Topics of interest include (non-exhaustive list): solution concepts in game theory; efficiency of stable outcomes; complexity classes in game theory; algorithmic mechanism design; coalitions, coordination, and collective action; auction design and analysis; economic paradigms; cooperative and non-cooperative algorithmic game theory; social choice and voting; network games and graph-theoretic aspects of social networks; supervised and unsupervised learning; clustering, classification and link recommendation; diffusion dynamics on networks; analysis of time-evolving graphs.

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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.
