Since Mandelbrot integrated and provided fractal theory, it was soon applied as a characteristic of complex information, and used in many research domains. Today, fractal theory is widely used in combination with dynamical system, chaos, and fractional dimensions.
Except for the theory of fractals, fractal-based applications have also been successfully applied in the analysis of complex natural or engineering phenomenon, especially in empirical description of information with complex structures. For example, a great deal of thermodynamic information can be analyzed using fractal-based methods. Moreover, the biological information of many species can be discovered using fractal analysis. In addition, fractal-based information analysis and processing can be used in information encoding, compression, recognition, extraction, and so on. In fact, fractal compression can compress information with a very high compression ratio, which is higher than classical compression methods by several times, or even more. Fractal-based classification and recognition and recognition method are also used in bioinformatics, geology, and other domains of natural science.
Since fractal-based methods have started to occupy a central place in information processing and recognition domains today, this Special Issue aims to provide an opportunity for researchers to publish their fractal-based studies in information processing and recognition. All accepted papers must have original research results, as well as excellent engineering applications.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2300 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.
