Special Issue "Algorithms for Graphs and Networks"
A special issue of Algorithms (ISSN 1999-4893). This special issue belongs to the section "Combinatorial Optimization, Graph, and Network Algorithms".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 October 2020).
Interests: Combinatorial Optimisation; Metaheuristics; Algorithmics; Operational Research
Networks and graphs are structures made up of objects in which some pairs of objects are in some sense "related" to one other. Graphs are used in a surprisingly large number of problem areas including social networking, chemistry, scheduling, vehicle routing, electrical engineering, and computer networking. This Special Issue will present recent advances in the area of graphs and networks, focusing particularly on optimisation problems in graphs and algorithms and heuristics for tackling them.
We cordially invite you to submit high-quality papers to this Special Issue of Algorithms. We welcome articles presenting original research and those surveying recent advances in the area. Typical areas of interest include (but are not limited to):
- Algorithm analysis (theoretical and empirical)
- Problem complexity, bounds, and approximation ratios
- Heuristics, metaheuristics, and math-heuristics
- Graph colouring and partitioning
- Shortest path problems
- Methods and measures of clustering
- Centrality measures
- Matchings, flows, cuts and spanning trees
- Graph classification and visualisation
- Cycle and path identification
- Data structures
- Linear and integer programming with graphs
- Vertex and arc routing problems
- Vehicle routing problems
- Scheduling and timetabling
- Puzzles and games
- Social networks and communications
- Applications to searching in massive graphs.
If you are interested in submitting a paper on a topic other than those listed above, please contact the guest editor, Rhyd Lewis, by email and give a brief overview of your paper proposal.

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.
