Symbolic data analysis has received a great deal of attention over the last few years and has been applied to many research areas, including astrophysics and geophysics, biology and medicine, fluid flow, chemistry, mechanical systems, artificial intelligence, communication systems, and, recently, data mining and big data. A fundamental step in this methodology is the quantization of original data into a corresponding sequence of symbols. The resulting time series is then considered a transformed version of the original data, allowing to highlight its temporal information. Indeed, it has been proven that this symbolization procedure can notably improve signal-to-noise ratios in some noisy time series. Moreover, symbolic data analysis also makes communication and numerical computation more efficient and effective, compared with the processing of continuous-valued time series.
However, symbolization of a time series always involves information loss, and, hence, this process deserves special attention. This challenge, along with other problems associated with symbolic entropy analysis, has been addressed in the first volume of the Special Issue on “Symbolic Entropy Analysis and Its Applications”. Given its success, this second volume aims to compile key current research on novel symbolization approaches, as well as applications of this kind of analysis to reveal pioneering information from different types of time series. Hence, manuscripts dealing with these topics will be welcome.

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. Entropy 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 1600 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.
