Special Issue "Graph Algorithms and Network Dynamics"
A special issue of Algorithms (ISSN 1999-4893). This special issue belongs to the section "Combinatorial Optimization, Graph, and Network Algorithms".
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 November 2020).
Interests: exact and approximation algorithms on graphs; fault tolerant algorithms and data structures; algorithmic game theory
This Special Issue is devoted to the design and analysis of graph algorithms and network dynamics, with an emphasis on the interplay between the two. While graphs have proven to be a powerful tool to capture many fundamental problems, they have been traditionally considered from a static perspective. However, there is a deep and broad connection between graph algorithms and graph dynamics, with applications ranging from selfish optimization to distributed computing and the analysis of social and biological networks. On the one hand, the analysis of network dynamics provides precious insights for the design of efficient algorithms (e.g., information dissemination or community detection in large-scale social networks). On the other hand, algorithmic techniques for graph mining and analysis can give key information about the nature of the considered networks and on the mechanisms guiding their evolution (e.g., greedy routing and small-world graphs). We invite you to submit original contributions to this Special Issue on “Algorithms and Dynamics on Graphs”. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
- Algorithmic aspects of networks;
- Algorithmic game theory and mechanism design on graphs;
- Models of graph and network evolution;
- Algorithms for large-scale social networks;
- Exact and approximation algorithms on graphs;
- Probabilistic and randomized graph algorithms;
- Parallel and distributed graph algorithms;
- Stochastic graph processes.

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.
