Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Error-correcting coding is an indispensable part of signal processing in modern communication and computer systems. In recent years, low-density parity-check (LDPC) codes and polar codes have been designed and implemented in practical applications such as wireless networks, satellite communications and memory systems. Furthermore, block codes are being explored for use in quantum computation and communication channels as well as in various watermarking techniques and cryptographic schemes. As technology advances, it is of great importance to investigate the types of error-correcting codes that may be needed in future applications. A good example of this is future wireless networks, which will require a low latency that limits the code length. This offers an opportunity to explore short block codes as alternatives to LDPC codes and polar codes, which are known to have good performance only at moderate to large code lengths. Another important example is quantum error-correcting codes that are fundamental for both enabling powerful computing systems as well as securing network communications. The area of error-correcting coding is therefore a very active one, with new open problems to be solved with innovative designs and implementations.

This Special Issue invites researchers in this area to share results and insights on novel applications of error-correcting codes, including their design, analysis and implementation.

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.
