Special Issue Information
Network-based models are pervasive in many fields of science and technology, as they naturally capture relationships between entities. The study of relationships emerged as a pivotal addition to standard social and behavioral research, going beyond the single attributes of the social units. Indeed, networks (or graphs) are widely used to model relational data in a variety of application domains, including social sciences, economy and finance, information and homeland security, management, biology, computer networks, marketing, and software design. With the increasing amount of relational data generated every day, processing, managing, and analyzing large-scale graphs have become prominent problems in data science, which pose several challenges ranging from the design of efficient graph algorithms to the development of scalable and effective systems.
This special issue calls for papers that contribute to the multifaceted research on processing, managing, and analyzing large and complex networks. Interested authors are invited to contribute their original, unpublished work. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
- Management information systems
- Big network data management
- Large-scale graph processing algorithms and systems
- Parallel and distributed graph algorithms
- Strategic information systems
- Decision support systems
- Graph drawing and network visualization techniques
- Human-computer interaction for network analysis
- Graph benchmarks and generators

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. Future Internet 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.
