[DMANET] Special Issue "Online Algorithms in Trading Systems‎"

Special Issue "Online Algorithms in Trading Systems‎"
A special issue of Algorithms (ISSN 1999-4893).

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2019

Dear Colleagues,

Online algorithms handle situations where the future input is unknown.
Since competitive
analysis was first introduced in the mid-1980s, online algorithms have been
studied for a
wide range of problems, and naturally this includes those involving
financial markets and
trading. As algorithmic and high-frequency trading become increasingly
prevalent, many new
algorithmic questions and challenges arise.

For this Special Issue, we invite submissions of articles that describe
recent advances in the
design and analysis of online algorithms for trading systems (broadly
defined). Both original
research papers and surveys are welcome. Topics of interest include, but
are not limited to:

- Time series search
- Trading strategies
- Portfolio optimization
- Hedging and risk management
- Pricing and market clearing
- Auction systems
- Mechanism design and other game-theoretic issues
- Empirical evaluation of algorithm performance
