Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The use of mm-Wave in 5G wireless communications will mitigate the spectrum shortage in current 4G cellular communication systems that operate at frequencies below 6 GHz. However, the increasing number of new applications such as virtual/augmented reality (VR/AR), autonomous driving, Internet of Things (IoT), and wireless backhaul (as a replacement for labor-intensive installation of optical fiber), as well as newer applications that have not been conceived yet, will need even greater data rates and less latency than what 5G networks will offer. 6G is expected to extend 5G capabilities even further. Higher bitrates (up to Tbps) and lower latency (less than 1ms) enable the introduction of new services – such as pervasive edge intelligence, ultra-massive machine-type communications, extremely reliable low-latency communications, holographic telepresence, eHealth and wellness applications, pervasive connectivity in smart environments, industry 4.0 and massive robotics, massive unmanned mobility in three dimensions, and augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR).

On the other hand, artificial intelligence (AI) approaches and techniques, such as machine learning (ML) (of which deep learning and reinforcement learning are specific examples), are new fundamental enablers for operating wireless networks more efficiently, for enhancing the overall end-user experience and for providing innovative service applications. Machine learning (ML) will represent a basic functionality to guarantee the efficiency of future wireless communication networks and, at the same time, can represent enabling technology for several added-value applications and services. The utilization of ML in the wireless communication nodes can enable several advanced services and quality of service functionalities for the proposed applications. Considering, all the above, research in 6G wireless systems is a highly challenging topic.

We invite researchers to contribute original papers that describe applications and experiences of the emerging trends of 6G communication technologies.

Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Antenna design for 6G systems
  • Machine learning applications for 6G networks
  • Network design and optimization for 6G
  • THz Communications as 6G enabler
  • NOMA techniques for 6G
  • IoT for 6G
  • Vision, key drivers, new services, and requirements for 6G
  • System and network architectures for 6G
  • Wireless backhaul and fronthaul solutions for 6G

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. Telecom is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1200 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.
