With the phenomenal growth of various state-of-the-art networking domains (social networks, wireless networks, web, etc.), and the enriched information available on classical networks (biological networks, citation networks, etc.), our need for a comprehensive suite of algorithms to analyze all of these networks, from both a theoretical and practical standpoint, has become imperative. Through this Special Issue, we invite authors to contribute papers that address the need for developing algorithms for complex network analysis, visualization of large complex network graphs, and the development of efficient methods to study the characteristics of networks involving hundreds or thousands of nodes. Some of the topics of interest include (but are not limited to): community detection algorithms, algorithms for information cascades and diffusion, algorithms for web analytics, algorithms for random graph models, algorithms for scale-free and small-world networks, analysis of biological networks, algorithms for novel centrality measures, etc. We also seek papers that compare the algorithms behind the implementation of various network analysis tools, as well as propose extensions to these algorithms, for analyzing characteristics that are yet to be explored in the literature. Additionally, we invite papers that would apply the algorithms for complex network analysis to various real-world networks (such as the Internet) and Wireless network domains (such as ad hoc networks and sensor networks). We seek high quality papers that clearly delineate its unique contributions to the literature and highlight its differences from that of related work.

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.
