Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the rapid development of the Internet, the arrival of 5G brought many conveniences to our lives. Looking back, the evolution process from 1G to 5G represents the entire development process of communications, from mobile communication, mobile data, to the current Internet of Everything. However, the continuous development of wireless communication provides us with new opportunities as well as new challenges.

In this Special Issue, we will pay special attention to the current development of 6G technology, which is a breakthrough in many key technologies. We welcome those who are interested in wireless communication technology to contribute to this Special Issue. We are looking forward to receiving your submissions. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Integrated Sensing and Communication
  • Localization and Sensing in 6G
  • Positioning-aided Communication
  • Massive and Ultra-Massive MIMO technologies
  • Millimetre wave and THz communication
  • Massive MIMO Cell-free schemes
  • Distributed and centralized cooperative transmit and receive schemes
  • Physical layer security
  • Reconfigurable and large intelligent surfaces
  • Ultra-reliable low-latency communications

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
