Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The past few decades have seen an explosive growth in the use of computers around the world.  Lagging behind the initial uptake of computing devices was an appreciation for proper information security. Now individuals and organizations alike realize the lengths they have to go to protect their information and computing devices.

Whole industries now exist around network perimeter defence and secure coding practices. However, effective protective measures for human users are missing. Attackers recognize this fact and continue to make effective use of email phishing to gain initial access to a target network. Meanwhile, intelligence analysts are deluged by more unstructured, human language data than they can ever process manually. These are problems where computational semantics can play a role in solving. Modern approaches to computational semantics vary widely. Some solutions use formal, structured representations while others use distributional techniques like vector space models.

This Special Issue collects novel, state-of-the-art research into computational semantics. The selected articles present a range of approaches to computational semantics and information security problems. A diversity of information security problems and computational semantics techniques are desired.

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. Multimodal Technologies and Interaction 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.
