Bose-Einstein condensation is usually associated with spontaneous symmetry breaking (SSB) and off-diagonal long-range order (ODLRO). However, in systems with reduced dimensionality, quantum fluctuations make the SSB and ODLRO concepts more elusive, and new paradigms, such as quantum phase transition, quasi-condensate, and topological order, are needed. These new paradigms are also expected to play a crucial role in the presence of disorder, multi-components, Bose-Fermi mixtures, spin-orbit and Rabi couplings, long-range interaction potentials, and exotic confinements. The objective of the present Special Issue is to publish original papers and reviews which adequately represent the ongoing progress in this vast research area.

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. 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 1400 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.
