Special Issue "Information Theory and 5G Technologies"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 30 September 2018
Information theory has been applied in communications for over a half a century now, starting from the pioneering work of Shannon. The aim of this Special Issue is to encourage researchers to present original and recent developments on information theory for 5G communication systems and algorithms. 5G wireless communication systems are envisaged to support an exponential increase in the number of connected devices and the corresponding data demands. The use of innovative technologies in the context of 5G, such as Software Defined Networking, Network Function Virtualization, Cloud Computing, Internet of Things, among others, are expected to bring increasingly more attention of the research community. The mobile infrastructure resources evolve from closed physical equipment running private software to dynamic and open software instances running on top of virtualized infrastructure. It has created a new market based on the provisioning of customized mobile services. However, the lack of coordination and management of the resources limit the development of these novel technologies.
The present Special Issue focuses on the design and management issues in Future Networks, especially in the context of 5G mobile systems. It aims to provide a holistic view of research challenges and opportunities in the future management, analysis and monitoring in this emerging area. For this purpose, submissions of comprehensive overviews and surveys for future networks, as well as original papers related to these techniques, are proposed. Any paper submitted to this special issue should be relevant to entropy ,information theory ,probability theory or related aspect.

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. Entropy 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.
