The use of multi-antenna transceivers in communications systems to achieve high transmission rate and reliability has been the subject of extensive studies over the past two decades. Multi-antenna communication has been an integrative part of current wireless technologies, and will play a key role in the design and development of 5G networks. Nevertheless, to keep up with the rapidly increasing demand for high-speed data applications, more innovative and unconventional approaches that deal with efficient use of such transceivers are of high interest. This Special Issue is intended to reflect the current advances in the area of smart antennas and multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) communications.
We invite researchers to submit their original research or review articles that are concerned with novel techniques, models, analysis tools, and experimental results in this area. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Recent advances in MIMO signal processing
- Large-scale and massive MIMO systems
- Signal design, detection and estimation techniques for MIMO communications
- Recent advances in antenna array design, smart antennas and beamforming
- MIMO antenna systems and channel modeling
- Multiuser and cooperative communication systems
- Millimeter wave and Ultra-wideband MIMO communications
- Small cells and heterogeneous MIMO networks
- Full-duplex and interference cancelation and management techniques
- Cognitive radio for MIMO communications

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 papers will be 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. Electronics 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 350 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.
