Special Issue "Energy-Efficient Computing and Networking in the 5G Era"
A special issue of Energies (ISSN 1996-1073).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 November 2017
Current trends in networking foresee the adoption of the 5G by 2020. This technology will allow very high bandwidth and extremely low delay to users. In addition, 5G will trigger the connection of a variety of devices, making the Internet of Things a reality. In this context, the energy consumption of 5G, ranging from backbone to access segments, is becoming a serious challenge for network operators and for content providers. As a result, solutions limiting the energy consumption of 5G networks and computing devices, while allowing an excellent quality of service (QoS) to users, are of mandatory importance. This issue welcomes submissions focusing on the energy-efficiency of 5G, both in networking and computing contexts. In addition, theoretical works, as well as more practical ones, such as test-bed implementations, are encouraged.

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. Energies 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 1500 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.
