Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Following the success of the Special Issue of Symmetry titled "Symmetry in Optimization Theory, Algorithm and Applications", it is my pleasure to return as the Guest Editor for a second installment. This Special Issue will provide a platform for scholars to present their latest research on symmetry in optimization theory, methods, and applications. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, symmetric cone optimization, symmetric cone complementarity problems, sparse optimization, statistical optimization, financial statistics, biostatistics, portfolio optimization, interior-point methods, first-order optimization methods, machine learning, artificial intelligence, neural networks, and mathematical modeling.

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. Symmetry 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 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.
