Special Issue Information
The term “mean-field" has been referred to as a physics concept that attempts to describe the effect of an infinite number of particles on the motion of a single particle. Researchers began to apply the concept to social sciences in the early 1960s to study how an infinite number of factors affect individual decisions. However, the key ingredient in a game-theoretic context is the influence of the distribution of states and or control actions into the payoffs of the decision-makers. There is no need to have large population of decision-makers. A mean-field-type game is a game in which the payoffs and/or the state dynamics coefficient functions involve not only the state and actions profiles but also the distributions of state-action process (or its marginal distributions).
This Special Issue is devoted to contributions that focus on mean-field-type game theory and applications. Applications can be widespread and may include insurance, predictive maintenance, smart energy systems, intelligent transportation systems, big data, deep learning on social networks, millimeter wave next generation wireless networks, economics, physical and cyber security of the internet-of-everything, to mention some examples.

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. Games is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
