Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

With the development of mobile communication, the quantity of mobile communication devices and data consumption has increased sharply, and the diverse needs of users are also escalating. Many emerging applications, such as 4K live broadcasting, ultra-high-definition video, and virtual reality, put forward higher requirements for the capacity and data rate of the communication system. The sixth generation (6G) aims to establish an ultra-large-scale and ultra-high-rate wireless communication system. The current frequency band has been completely allocated and is limited to satisfy the demands of 6G and future wireless communication networks, and exploring new spectrum resources is an urgent concern. The millimeter-wave (mmWave) band is expected to break the spectrum bottleneck. However, mmWave Massive MIMO will face many problems, such as energy consumption, complex signal processing, high channel estimation overhead, massive inter-user interference, etc.

With this in mind, it is necessary to investigate mmWave massive MIMO technologies for next generation wireless communication, including advanced massive MIMO antenna architecture, hybrid precoding, channel estimation and prediction, and signal processing algorithm for mmWave massive MIMO techniques. These techniques include modulation and coding technology for mmWave massive MIMO, massive access technology, IRS, and cell-free massive MIMO, distributed massive MIMO, AI for mmWave massive MIMO, etc. Specifically, this Special Issue will look to develop efficient physical layer technologies for mmWave massive MIMO. Topics of this Special Issue interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • MmWave massive MIMO antenna architecture;
  • Hybrid percoding for mmWave massive MIMO;
  • Fast channel estimation and channel prediction;
  • Pilot design for mmWave massive MIMO;
  • Interference cancellation and massive access technology;
  • Distributed mmWave massive MIMO;
  • Cell-free mmWave massive MIMO;
  • Signal processing for massive MIMO;
  • AI integrated mmWave massive MIMO;
  • Modulation and coding technology for mmWave massive MIMO.

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. Electronics 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 2200 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.
