Interests: operation research management; intelligent optimization; logistics and transportation; transportation planning
Operations research (OR) is an analytical method of problem-solving and decision-making that enables us to achieve the best performance under the given circumstances. It is an interdisciplinary science involving statistical analysis, optimization theory, industrial and systems engineering, management science, Artificial Intelligence, and computer science, etc. Due to its power to handle sophisticated and practical problems, it is being widely applied to various areas, such as supply chains, logistics, production and scheduling, intelligent manufacturing, smart health, transportation planning, operation management, and engineering design. Though symmetry/asymmetry phenomena are observed in most of the aforementioned areas, as with logistics and supply chains, symmetry/asymmetry in OR has not been thoroughly investigated. This Special Issue “Symmetry/Asymmetry in Operations Research” focuses on the methodologies and applications of OR involving symmetry/asymmetry phenomena. It aims to attract high-quality studies of original OR contributions and to promote theoretical developments and real-world implementations in relevant fields. Research areas may include (but are not limited to) the following:
- Supply chains management;
- Production and scheduling;
- Routing optimization in logistics;
- Intelligent transportation system;
- Intelligent manufacturing;
- Smart health;
- Operation management;
- Optimization algorithm.
We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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 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.
