Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Information theory builds the basis for the digitalization of our current world. All forms of data creation, storage, transmission, processing, and data consumption are well mathematically modeled. Complex systems and networks comprise multiple nodes and concurring interests in natural as well as adversarial setting. Game theory provides a solid basis for the modeling and systematic solution of conflict situations of rational agents.

Both methods have worked fruitfully together to analyze and design complex communication systems and networks. Examples include resource allocation problems in multiuser scheduling networks, power control in interference networks, or distributed beamforming, which comprises networks operating in secure environments where both legitimate nodes and attackers compete against each other. Finally, other examples include game models for quantum computing and communications where quantum states are maintained as a valuable resource in communication networks.

The Special Issue solicits contributions at the interdisciplinary intersection between information and game theory. Both fundamental contributions to improve the understanding of the interplay between information and game theory as well as applied work based on these disciplines are of interest.

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.
