Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The fifth generation (5G) of mobile communications has helped to bridge the growth of data and device connections demand. This Special Issue entitled ”Second Edition of Advances in Wireless Communications Systems” aims to investigate the new challenges and opportunities which will be enabled by the sixth generation (6G) of mobile communications.

The next network protocols should take account of resource allocation and optimization, also provided by new artificial intelligence algorithms or Fog computing and networking systems. Moreover, massive data transmission should require a high level of cybersecurity, including physical layer security. Finally, to satisfy the new network performance demand, updated spectral bands in radio and optical frequencies are required.

Papers should highlight either theoretical issues or practical applications, such as smart cities with ultra-low latency communications, healthcare with massive density of wireless body area networks (WBANs), the Internet of Things with ultra-low power communications, infotainment with high throughput for ultra-high multimedia definition, etc.

The contribution topics of primary interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Network protocols;
  • Resource allocation techniques;
  • Artificial intelligence applied in communications systems;
  • Radio Frequencies (RFs) enabling 6G;
  • Optical wireless communications;
  • Vehicular communications;
  • Industrial communications;
  • Wireless body area networks (WBANs);
  • Ultra-low power communications;
  • Network performance;
  • Fog computing and networking;
  • Pervasive communications;
  • 6G communications;
  • Physical layer security;
  • Cybersecurity 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. Information 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 1600 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.
