Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

“Symmetry” has reach in almost every discipline of information technology. Its elements appear in many applications, for example, object recognition, engineering design, music composition, and market prediction. By using the properties of “symmetry”, intelligent systems, such as the Internet of Things (IoT) and Cyber–Physical Systems (CPS), can be made more efficient and effective. The changes in industry over the last decade as a result of innovative technologies and businesses challenging competitiveness have been overwhelming. These changes are partly due to the emergence of new technologies such as the IoT, CPS, deep learning, self-media, and the shared economy and partly due to the international trade protection, which constrains the development of global supply chain and regional tax-free agreements. The aim of this Special Issue is to call attention to the important trend of using Symmetry/Asymmetry in information technology. We are collaborating with several conferences on this theme and are also open for submissions (research and review articles) covering (though not limited to) the following topics:

  • Symmetry/asymmetry in information technology;
  • Symmetry/asymmetry and heuristics and metaheuristics;
  • Symmetry/asymmetry algorithms.

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.

The intelligent connected vehicle (ICV) decision-making system needs to match tourist interests and search for the route with the lowest travel cost when recommending POIs (Points of Interest) and navigation tour routes. In response to this research objective, we construct a navigation route-planning model for tourism intelligent connected vehicles based on symmetrical spatial clustering and improved fruit fly optimization algorithm. Firstly, we construct the POI feature attribute clustering algorithm based on the spatial decision forest to achieve the optimal POI recommendation. Secondly, we construct the POI spatial attribute clustering algorithm based on the SA-AGNES (Spatial Accessibility-Agglomerative Nesting) to achieve the spatial modeling between POIs and ICV clusters. On the basis of POI feature attribute and spatial attribute, we construct the POI recommendation algorithm for the ICV navigation routes based on the attribute weights. On the basis of the recommended POIs, we construct the tourism ICV navigation route-planning model based on the improved fruit fly optimization algorithm. Experiments prove that the proposed algorithm can accurately output POIs that match tourists’ interests and needs, and find out the ICV navigation route with the lowest travel cost. Compared with the commonly used map route-planning methods and traditional route-searching algorithms, the proposed algorithm can reduce the travel costs by 15.22% at most, which can also effectively reduce the energy consumption of the ICV system, and improve the efficiency of sight-seeing and traveling for tourists.
