Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Artificial intelligence concerns creating agents for solving large-scale real-world problems. Typically, these problems are very challenging from a theoretical complexity perspective (e.g., NP-complete). The best approaches often involve a combination of theoretically justified algorithms and heuristics, as well as general domain-independent approaches and approaches that utilize domain-specific expertise. Game theory is the study of strategic interactions. In order to create strong agents for complex multiagent environments, new AI approaches are needed.

This Special Issue welcomes submissions that fall at the intersection of game theory and artificial intelligence, broadly construed (note that submissions can focus more on either GT or AI; they do not need to focus equally on both). Submissions can be primarily theoretical, applied, or a combination of both. We welcome original research articles as well as comprehensive review articles on a relevant topic. See the keywords for a list of specific topics of interest.

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. Mathematics 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.
