Aims and Scope

Network problems are pervasive in our modern technological society, as witnessed by our reliance on physical networks that provide power, communication, and transportation. As well, a number of processes can be modeled using logical networks, as in the scheduling of interdependent tasks, the dating of archaeological artifacts, or the compilation of subroutines comprising a large computer program. Networks provide a common framework for posing and studying problems that often have wider applicability than their originating context.

The goal of this journal is to provide a central forum for the distribution of timely information about network problems, their design and mathematical analysis, as well as efficient algorithms for carrying out optimization on networks. The nonstandard modeling of diverse processes using networks and network concepts is also of interest. Consequently, the disciplines that are useful in studying networks are varied, including applied mathematics, operations research, computer science, discrete mathematics, and economics.

Networks publishes material on the modeling of problems using networks, the analysis of network problems, the design of computationally efficient network algorithms, and innovative case studies of successful network applications. Since the audience for this journal is then necessarily broad, articles that impact multiple application areas or that creatively use new or existing methodologies are especially appropriate. We seek to publish original, well-written research papers that make a substantive contribution to the knowledge base. In addition, tutorial and survey articles are welcomed. All manuscripts are carefully refereed.

Special Issues
Special Issue on Networks on “Network based system optimization”
Submission Date: 2018-01-28

Network based systems are assuming increasing importance in a huge number of applied fields, such as transportation and logistics, computer science, information and communication technologies, critical infrastructure protection, only to cite the most important ones, playing a relevant role in the socio-economic development of a modern society. This special issue is addressed to scientists and experts from academia and industry, invited to present high quality research papers on methodological and theoretical advances in exact and heuristic optimization methods and their application in network based systems. Topics of interest include, but they are not limited to: • Graph Theory and Network Optimization • Paths and Flow Problems • Covering, Location and Routing Problems • Traffic, Transportation and Logistics • Railway and Maritime Problems • Critical Infrastructure Protection • Emergency and Humanitarian Logistics • ICT and Computer Networks • Industrial and Territorial Applications • Emerging applications and practice of OR
