Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

An obvious trend that emerged in the current research and development is the significant advantage of applying network structures for the cooperative working. It shows the potential and power at all levels of cooperative applications convincingly. The structure of the networks seen here is very general in both symmetric and asymmetric manner. This special issue concentrates on the symmetric characteristic of the networks and its influence in the performance for a wide range of cooperative applications. The applications include the cooperative work in the well-known internet and the social networks, specific networks such as neural networks, sensor networks, even the basic convolutional networks embedded into many basic algorithms.

This special issue is calling for all the contributions that apply the network structure both symmetric and asymmetric in different application areas at all the levels with the analysis of the impact of the symmetry in the network structure. It intends to show the potential of the network structure from macro to micro level for cooperative working and cooperative task accomplishment related to the symmetry characteristic. All the up-to-date related contributions are welcome to submit.

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.
