Special Issue "Games on Networks: From Theory to Experiments"
A special issue of Games (ISSN 2073-4336).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 December 2018).
We are glad to invite you to contribute to the special issue "Games on Networks: From Theory to Experiments". Evolutionary Game Theory has been successfully applied to numerous biological, social, economic and physical systems, most of the time represented as networks of interaction among different system components. During the last two decades, network science has been proven to be a fundamental tool for analyzing and explaining game dynamics occurring within many of those systems. For instance, network reciprocity has been proposed as one of the leading mechanisms that promote the evolution of cooperation in Prisoner's Dilemma and Public Goods games. Evolutionary games on networks have been studied through analytical tools, massive computer simulations and within controlled laboratory and field experiments.
This Special Issue aims at bringing together researchers from various fields of complex systems interested in investigating game dynamics on networked systems. We accept contributions ranging from theoretical and agent-based modeling to more applied frameworks that include games occurring in static or evolving/dynamic network structures. Both short reviews and original papers will be considered for publication. Keywords below are merely indicative.Dr. Alberto Antonioni

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. Games 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.
