Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 2020 International Symposium on Performance Evaluation of Computer and Telecommunication Systems will be held in Madrid, Spain on July 20–22, 2020. For more information about the conference, please click this link: http://atc.udg.edu/SPECTS2020/.

The authors of a number of selected full papers of high quality will be invited after the conference to submit revised and extended versions of their originally accepted conference papers to this Special Issue of Computers, published by MDPI, in open access. The selection of these high-quality papers will be based on their ratings in the conference review process, the quality of presentation during the conference, and their expected impact on the research community. Each submission to this Special Issue should contain at least 50% new material, e.g., in the form of technical extensions, more in-depth evaluations, or additional use cases and a change of title, abstract and keywords. These extended submissions will undergo a peer-review process according to the journal’s rules of action. At least two technical committees will act as reviewers for each extended article submitted to this Special Issue; if needed, additional external reviewers will be invited to guarantee a high-quality reviewing process.

In addition, the editors would like to extend this call to the research community for submitting high quality research papers on Modelling and Performance Evaluation of Computer and Telecommunication Systems in accordance with the scope of the conference in the following topics:

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. Computers 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.
