With the great commercial success of 5G networks, the focus of the research community is on future wireless and mobile communication networks. Software-defined networks have proven their high efficiency in core network implementations; however, their reliance on physical layers hinders the application of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Higher frequency bands (e.g., THz-domain) are essential in coping with high traffic-volume demands; new antenna technologies such as fluid antenna or phased-array antenna and related beamforming algorithms are still not yet capable of supporting such frequencies. We are also witnessing the growth of emerging unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and low-earth orbit (LEO) satellite constellations, which create novel challenges in 3D network design and resource allocation. Furthermore, ensuring the end-to-end security with high energy efficiency in the heterogenous mobile networks calls for deeper exploration.
To this end, this Special Issue aims to collect high-quality research papers and review articles on the latest advances and prospects in wireless and mobile communication networks, including 5G and B5G, and miniaturization platform (such as IoT, VR) integration. This Special Issue solicits original papers that contribute to the scientific community with solid ideas that have not been published before and are not under review by other journals or conferences. Theoretical investigations, simulations, and practical experiments are welcome.

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.
