With the rapid increase in computational power and due to the pervasiveness of algorithms in modern society, governments, institutions, universities, research centres, and scientists in general are getting more and more interested in finding algorithmic solutions to very sophisticated problems that are intractable most of the time.
The upcoming Special Issue “Approximation Algorithms for NP-Hard Problems” aims to provide a comprehensive view of the most recent advances in the design and development of approximate solutions for computationally difficult problems. We therefore invite you to submit high quality papers that focus on algorithmic and complexity theoretic aspects of NP-hard problems to this Special Issue. The topics include, but are not limited to:
- approximation algorithms;
- inapproximability results;
- online algorithms and competitive analysis;
- distributed and parallel approximation;
- streaming algorithms;
- combinatorial optimization in graphs and networks;
- algorithmic game theory and mechanism design;
- computational geometry problems.

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.
