Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Various types of structured and unstructured data are continuously generated throughout the glove. Some data are quite useful in decision making, whereas others are irrelevant, inconsistent, or inaccurate. The process of building valid, unique, fascinating, and potentially useful knowledge from large amounts of data is known as data mining and knowledge discovery. It entails assessing and perhaps even interpreting patterns in order to determine what qualifies as knowledge. It is focused on the creation and application of efficient algorithms capable of analyzing data and extracting meaningful information. To attain the needed information, some commonly used technologies include deep neural networks, natural language processing, soft computing, and artificial intelligence. Mathematical analysis is used to express representations, model, and synthesize empirical data or observations from the real world. One of the most useful steps in developing a decision support system is data pretreatment and feature extraction, for which numerous intelligence algorithms based on natural language processing, image processing, and various soft computing techniques play essential roles.

As a result, the goal of this Special Issue is to considerably advance the state of the art in this field by offering a thorough examination and comparison of existing and newly developed works. We are pleased to announce that the MDPI journal Algorithms will publish a Special Issue titled “Effective Algorithms for Intelligent Data Mining and Knowledge Discovery”. This Special Issue focuses on the design of artificial intelligence-based algorithms for data mining and knowledge discovery, including clustering, classification, and summarization, using natural language processing, image, audio, and video processing, machine learning, and other related topics. We are looking for articles that deal with such approaches and present unique results relating to the theoretical analysis and understanding of such algorithms, as well as papers that indicate new improvements in the algorithms or deal with relevant applications. We urge authors from all over the world to submit their unpublished original works. In addition, we seek extensive surveys with thought-provoking questions to considerably improve the state of the art in this field. We are particularly interested in works that address the issues listed below, but we are open to any submissions that fit the Special Issue’s theme.

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.
