Special Issue "Algorithms for Sequential Analysis"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 May 2021.
In many applications, it is necessary to make decisions while information is still being collected. Decision-makers regularly face such problems in important areas including cyber risk, resource allocations, and finance. The purpose of this Special Issue is to gather a collection of articles reflecting the latest developments in algorithms for sequential analysis. This Special Issue provides a forum for academics and practitioners to disseminate high-quality results related to theoretical and practical aspects of sequential algorithms. Potential topics include, but are not limited to, dynamic programming, online machine learning algorithms, Monte Carlo methods in sequential analysis, Markov decision processes, Bayesian sequential analysis, optimal stopping rules, quickest change-point detection problem, and stochastic games.

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. Algorithms 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.
