Data farming is a relatively new field and, hence, there have been many challenges in Operations Research and Simulation when using Data Farming approaches. Typical problems are so-called “What If” scenarios in military decision support where a mathematical model needs to be developed and high-performance simulations must be performed. Afterwards, the results are explored regarding normal and abnormal trends (how do the data grow?). Also, the definition of Data Farming is not always unique because many researchers have used it in different ways and contexts.
In this special issue, we would like to address mathematical and practical contributions when dealing with Data Farming. In Particular:
- Strategic data farming
- Novel practical applications by using Data Farming
- Interrelations of data farming and optimization
- Social networks in the context of Data Farming
- Knowledge networks in the context of Data Farming

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. Axioms is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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.
