Special issue on Algorithms for Graphs and Networks https://www.mdpi.com/journal/algorithms/special_issues/graphs_networks
*** Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30th September 2020 ***
We cordially invite you to submit high-quality papers to this special issue of Algorithms https://www.mdpi.com/journal/algorithms (2019 Scopus CiteScore of 1.98).
Networks and graphs are structures made up of objects in which some pairs of objects are in some sense "related" to one other. Graphs are used in a surprisingly large number of problem areas including social networking, chemistry, scheduling, modeling the spread of disease, vehicle routing, electrical engineering, and computer networking. This special issue will present recent advances in the area of graphs and networks, focusing particularly on optimization problems in graphs together with appropriate algorithms and heuristics for tackling them.
We welcome articles presenting original research and also those surveying recent advances in the area. Typical areas of interest include (but are not limited to):
* Algorithm analysis (theoretical and empirical)
* Problem complexity, bounds, and approximation ratios
* Heuristics, metaheuristics, and math-heuristics
* Graph coloring and partitioning
* Shortest path problems
* Methods and measures of clustering
* Centrality measures
* Matchings, flows, cuts and spanning trees
* Graph classification and visualization
* Cycle and path identification
* Data structures
* Linear and integer programming with graphs
* Vertex and arc routing problems
* Vehicle routing problems
* Scheduling and timetabling
* Puzzles and games
* Social networks and communications
* Applications to searching in massive graphs.
If you are interested in submitting a paper on a topic other than those listed here, please contact the guest editor by email to give a brief overview of your paper proposal.

MANUSCRIPT SUBMISSION INFORMATION
Manuscripts should be submitted on-line at www.mdpi.com before the above deadline. All papers are subject to a single-blinded peer-review process. Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. Extended versions of conference papers are acceptable provided that the submission is augmented with at least 30% new material (in this case you are asked to submit a document detailing the original conference paper and highlighting the new material in the paper). A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available at https://www.mdpi.com/journal/algorithms/instructions.
Please note that Algorithms is an international open access journal. As a result, all accepted submissions are subject to an article processing charge of 1000 CHF (approximately 1000 USD or 950 Euros) on publication.
