Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The quantification of uncertainty as an aid in decision making has been an essential part of various fields and respective modern applications. As such, it has been a fertile area for multidisciplinary focused research due to the ease of access to computational capabilities. The objective of this Special Issue is to highlight recent advances in the analysis of games and decisions using Bayesian methods of inference or applied probability, more broadly defined. We anticipate these advances to stem mostly from modern computational aspects of decision making under uncertainty spanning across fields such as engineering, sciences, business, economics, and reliability/risk, among others. The Special Issue is designed to be interdisciplinary in nature and welcomes both novel methodological and application-focused research contributions across a myriad of fields. Some examples of areas of interest include (but are not limited to) sequential decision analysis, Bayesian information theory, state space time series analysis, stochastic volatility, Markov chain Monte Carlo methods, particle-based estimation, reliability and risk, multicriteria decision making, Bayesian networks, optimization, simulation-based decision theory, and multistage decision analysis.

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. Entropy 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 1800 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.
