Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In recent years, the Internet of Things (IoT) has been developed rapidly to provide support for a myriad of emerging applications, such as the Internet of Vehicles (IoV), virtual reality, industry automation, autonomous driving and so on. Demand for higher bandwidth, lower latency, and wider coverage drives the development of the sixth-generation (6G) networks. Considering the heterogeneity and densification of the IoT, 6G is expected to empower IoT and IoV, enabling millions of connected devices and vehicles to operate seamlessly. On the other hand, Artificial Intelligence (AI) techniques are often involved in the self-organizing decision making of IoT applications. In such scenarios, the accordingly different symmetry models are generated to tackle the challenges and issues. For example, symmetry is often leveraged to construct an efficient network structure tailored toward a given task.

In this Special Issue, we are interested in novel ideas, advanced techniques, comparative analyses of different methodologies and surveys or technical reviews on all aspects of existing results in IoT. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • D2D, M2M, V2V and V2X
  • Vehicular Ad Hoc network and mobile Ad Hoc network
  • Edge computing and caching
  • Task scheduling and resource management for IoT
  • NOMA, RSMA and other new access schemes
  • Parallel/distributed architectures and algorithms
  • Security and privacy
  • Hardware platform for IoT
  • AI and machine learning for IoT
  • IoT applications in agriculture, industry, healthcare, etc.

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. Symmetry 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 2400 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.
