Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 5G standard for broadband wireless communication addresses location-specific services requiring positioning information alongside its high accuracy, low latency and enhanced reliability communication. Such requirements will be further emphasized in the future vision of 6G wireless communication, which emerges as a further evolution of advanced telecommunications well beyond 5G. Such future systems will be designed not only to allow reliable transmission of information, but also to allow accurate localization. Hence, communication and positioning will become intertwined in modern wireless communication, posing new challenges for information theory and signal processing research. Tensors provide a convenient mathematical framework to represent, analyze and design such complex systems.

This Special Issue addresses the challenges of advanced signal processing and system design techniques for wireless communication and positioning applications. Of interest are works considering signal processing and tensor techniques for integrated communication and positioning, as well as separated such applications. Suitable topics for this Special Issue include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Information-theoretical limits to communication and positioning in wireless systems.
  • Information-theory-inspired techniques for communication and positioning.
  • Modulation and coding for communication and positioning.
  • Tensor techniques for information transmission and positioning.
  • Tensor-based methods for interference robust communication and positioning.
  • Tensor applications in satellite navigation and communication.
  • Reconfigurable intelligent surfaces for localization and communication.
  • Networking aspects of information transmission and positioning.
  • Resource allocation techniques for communication and positioning.
  • Sensing and communication aspects for positioning.
  • AI-assisted techniques for communication and positioning application.
  • Wireless federated learning for positioning.
  • Satellite-based communication and positioning for future wireless communication services.
  • Applications such as 6G, autonomous driving vehicles, UAVs, IoT, safety and security, visible light systems and satellite systems.

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. Entropy is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly 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 2600 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.
