Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

MSPN 2019 is the 5th edition of the successful International Conference on Mobile, Secure and Programmable Networking. The goal of the conference is to provide a forum for scientists, engineers and researchers to discuss and exchange novel ideas, results, experiences and work-in-progress on all aspects of computer and information technology. Each year, MSPN attendees appreciate and benefit from multidisciplinary exchanges on Mobile, Secure and Programmable Networking. For more information about the conference, please use this link: http://www.adda-association.org/mspn-2019/ .

Selected authors who present papers at the conference are invited to submit their extended versions to this Special Issue of the journal Computers after the conference. All submitted papers will undergo our standard peer-review procedure. Accepted papers will be published in open-access format in Computers and collected together in this Special Issue website.

The conference paper should be cited and noted on the first page of the paper; authors are asked to disclose that it is a conference paper in their cover letter, and include a statement on what has been changed compared to the original conference paper; submitted papers should be extended to the size of regular research or review articles with at least 40% extension of new results, and the papers should be not exceed 30% copy/paste from conference paper.

Please prepare and format your paper according to the Instructions for Authors. Use the LaTeX or Microsoft Word template file for the journal (both are available from the Instructions for Authors page). Manuscripts should be submitted online via our susy.mdpi.com editorial system.
