Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Digital twins are intricate digital replicas of real-world systems that are connected to their corresponding real-world counterparts by sensors and other Internet of Things (IoT) gadgets. It is one of most demanding areas of research, especially in the area of Industry 4.0. The transformation from Industry 4.0 to 5.0 makes it more popular among researchers.

This Special Issue primarily aims to invite researchers from different domains of network and communication technologies at a single platform to submit their research ideas.

This Special Issue will cover the novel ideas from network technologies, algorithms, surveys, communication challenges, and future research aspects. The extended papers with 80% new content from the fifth version of Futuristic Trends in Computing and Communication (FTNCT) may also be considered for submission in this Special Issue. The extended research papers have to pass through a blind peer review by at least two reviewers, as per the MDPI Guidelines.

Original unpublished articles on the following topics are invited for submission:

  • Digital twin sensors;
  • Digital twin in Industry 4.0/5.0;
  • Smart grids, smart cities, IoT systems, and digital twins;
  • Digital twins for network and computing technologies;
  • Internet of Things (IoT) and fog-computing-enabled digital twin systems for sustainable industries and cities;
  • Futuristic digital twin technologies for digital healthcare and precision agriculture;
  • Security and privacy issues in digital-twin-enabled systems.
