The MECO meetings are yearly surveys for the novel results related to statistical physics. In general, contributions to these conferences have a wide spectrum ranging from the classical models and methods of statistical physics to modern interdisciplinary applications. Depending on the research specialization of the organizing institutes the meeting might focus also on a more clearly defined topic, without being restricted to other contributions. The 2020 MECO45 meeting is therefore focusing on complex systems and their methods of study that are inspired by statistical physics. Simple and complex models of statistical physics, it's analytical and/or numerical methods have proven to be helpful and successful in tackling the complexity of the world around us. The main topics covered by most of the keynote and invited talks are related to either models or methods. Besides the popular fields of complex networks, dynamical systems, emergence, econo- and socio-physics, phase-transitions and pattern formation we also expect contributions tackling other novel problems, models and methods that are not directly related to the above problems. For the present conference, we propose thus to edit the special issue in two directions, one focusing on general contributions in all the fields related to statistical physics and the other closely related to complex systems. For the second direction targeting complex systems we intend to invite also contributions from well-known researchers who will not have the opportunity to join us at the MECO 45 meeting in Cluj-Napoca. Submission of contributions to this special issue is encouraged for all participants of the MECO 45 conference (http://atom.ubbcluj.ro/meco45/).

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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 1800 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.
