Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The advances in computer architectures and systems play a key role in supporting and boosting the development and deployment of complex applications in several domains, including machine learning and high-performance scientific computing.

This Special Issue aims to disseminate relevant contributions to modern and emerging designs and techniques in computer architecture and parallel processing. The primary focus is on original and pertinent methodologies, techniques, and architectures in hardware accelerators for machine learning, processor architectures, and systems. Topics include enhancements in energy efficiency, performance, and fault tolerance. Additionally, this Special Issue aims to address the evaluation of reliability in emerging and novel computer architectures and systems.

The primary scope of this Special Issue includes, but is not limited to:

  • Parallel architectures;
  • Emerging architectures for hardware accelerators;
  • Design and programming of large language model (LLM) accelerators;
  • Reliability and fault tolerance;
  • Graphics processing units;
  • Vector processors and accelerators;
  • High-performance computing.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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 2400 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.
