Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Online algorithms handle situations where the future input is unknown. Since competitive analysis was first introduced in the mid-1980s, online algorithms have been studied for a wide range of problems, and naturally this includes those involving financial markets and trading. As algorithmic and high-frequency trading become increasingly prevalent, many new algorithmic questions and challenges arise.

For this Special Issue, we invite submissions of articles that describe recent advances in the design and analysis of online algorithms for trading systems (broadly defined). Both original research papers and surveys are welcome. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Time series search
  • Trading strategies
  • Portfolio optimization
  • Hedging and risk management
  • Pricing and market clearing
  • Auction systems
  • Mechanism design and other game-theoretic issues
  • Empirical evaluation of algorithm performance

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.
