Wireless communications are a fundamental component of modern society. Antenna arrays play an important role in this field, as they provide a vast set of advantages such as high directivity and adaptive beamforming to improve the wireless link. Antenna arrays are employed in several applications such as 5G, MIMO, GNSS for autonomous vehicles, wireless power transfer, radar, and satellite, aerospace, and mobile communications. Antenna arrays prove to be essential even for military and safety applications, through, for example, null-pointing operations to mitigate interferences, both accidental and intentional. With the increase of computational power of modern systems, complex algorithms which were unfeasible in the past become real possibilities to improve antenna array performances. This, in turn, can pave the way for sizeable advancements in this technology and its applications, using recent advances in the fields of, for example, artificial intelligence, RF circuits, additive manufacturing, and graphene.
Authors are invited to submit to this Special Issue their contributions to the advancement of antenna array technology, from the development of novel antenna elements and arrays, to control algorithms and electronics, applications of antenna arrays, and so on. Both theoretical and experimental studies are welcome, as well as review and tutorial papers.

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. Applied Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly 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.
