Special Issue Information
The foundation of all activities in the field of civil engineering are optimal decision-making, design, technological, and operational solutions. These optimal solutions are based on the results of scientific research: experimental, numerical, and analytical, which focus on solving difficult, but extremely important and current problems faced by today’s construction challenges. Achieving symmetry in the developed solution is the primary goal of these research activities; however, there are still many issues for which achieving symmetry is extremely difficult, even impossible. Articles on this subject are welcome, in which the developed solutions in civil engineering have reached the state of symmetry, but also in which the pursuit of symmetry is still at the research stage. Works on planning construction investments and assessing their impact on the environment, analysis of construction investment variants, problems related to the organization and implementation of construction investments, analysis of the risks associated with construction activities, as well as management of construction facilities are particularly welcome. Interesting works in the field of laboratory research, as well as analytical solutions with broadly understood symmetry issues in civil engineering, are also encouraged. The aim of this Special Issue is to provide a platform to explore the state-of-the-art knowledge and its practical implementation, innovations, and symmetry in the area of civil engineering.

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. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs).
