Special Issue "Mathematical Biology and Game Theory"
A special issue of Games (ISSN 2073-4336).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 October 2018)
Dr. Shan Sun
We are seeking manuscripts that build and/or analyze game-theoretical models of biological scenarios. We welcome theoretical papers analyzing evolutionary dynamics, adaptive dynamics, evolutionarily stable strategies, and other game-theoretical notions related to mathematical biology. We also solicit papers that apply game theory directly to specific biological problems. Manuscripts applying game-theory to mating, sex allocation, signaling, food competition and foraging in general, the evolution of cooperation, hierarchy formation, predator–prey and host–parasite interactions and coevolution, coevolution of mutualists, epidemics and cancer biology modeling, and speciation are especially 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. 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 550 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.
