Algebra is a common language for many scientific domains. In developing this language mathematicians prove theorems and design methods which demonstrate the applicability of algebra. Using this language scientists in many fields find algebra indispensable to create methods, techniques and tools to solve their specific problems. Applicable Algebra in Engineering, Communication and Computing will publish mathematically rigorous, original research papers reporting on algebraic methods and techniques relevant to all domains concerned with computers, intelligent systems and communications. Its scope includes, but is not limited to, vision, robotics, system design, fault tolerance and dependability of systems, VLSI technology, signal processing, signal theory, coding, error control techniques, cryptography, protocol specification, networks, software engineering, arithmetics, algorithms, complexity, computer algebra, programming languages, logic and functional programming, algebraic specification, term rewriting systems, theorem proving, graphics, modeling, knowledge engineering, expert systems, and artificial intelligence methodology. Purely theoretical papers will not primarily be sought, but papers dealing with problems in such domains as commutative or non-commutative algebra, group theory, field theory, or real algebraic geometry, which are of interest for applications in the above mentioned fields are relevant for this journal. On the practical side, technology and know-how transfer papers from engineering which either stimulate or illustrate research in applicable algebra are within the scope of the journal.

Cancer is the most common cause of death in the western world today. It is now recognized that cancer is actually a complex array of different diseases, with different genetics and different behaviors. Understanding the genetic alterations that are typical of cancer development has completely revolutionarized research, and the way we treat patients. An astounding and increasing body of literature on cancer research make this field one of the most studied in medicine. Never before were there so many discoveries made that are translated into clinical practice at a rapidly increasing pace. These discoveries are changing the way that cancer is diagnosed, monitored and treated. Cancer treatment has become highly interdisciplinary and complex, and it relies on the expertises of many specialists. Frontiers in Oncology is an open-access journal that aims at publishing the best research across the entire field of oncology. The journal welcomes outstanding contributions in any domain of cancer research: from basic laboratory research to clinical investigation, from prevention to treatment, and from imaging studies to novel treatment strategies. Frontiers in Oncology publishes articles on the most outstanding discoveries across a wide research spectrum of Oncology. The mission of Frontiers in Oncology is to bring all relevant Oncology areas together on a single platform.
