Special Issue "Combinatorial Methods for String Processing"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (1 December 2020).
Strings, or sequences, are the most fundamental form of digital data. Due to recent developments in sensor network technologies and semi-automated machine-to-machine (M2M) communications, sequential data have been increasing more rapidly than ever. It is often the case that such semi-automatically generated sequential data contain abundant repetitive structures. Thus, understanding, revealing, and utilizing combinatorial objects that reside in strings are of great significance in designing efficient string processing algorithms and data structures. This Special Issue on “Combinatorial Methods for String Processing” aims exactly at this goal.
We cordially invite you to submit high-quality papers to this Special Issue. Typical topics of interests include (but are not limited to):
- Combinatorial string problems and solutions;
- Pattern matching algorithms;
- Applied combinatorics on words;
- Text compression;
- Data structures for strings, labeled trees, and compressed text.

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.
