Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Communication networks represent the foundation of today's digital service delivery for various users over the world. New digital services and user requirements have resulted in the fast development of communication networks and the emergence of new concepts and improvements of existing technologies. What are the future development trends? What are the possibilities of using artificial intelligence and machine learning in the planning, managing, and securing communication networks? What is the potential of quantum communications? What new challenges are communication networks regarding cybersecurity, quality of services, speeds, and capacities impact IoT devices? We are planning to unite those and other research questions related to communication networks in this Special Issues entitled “New advances and challenges in communication networks”.

This Special Issue calls for papers presenting novel works regarding planning, development, optimizing, simulating, and securing communication networks. Furthermore, high-quality review and survey papers are welcomed. The papers considered for possible publication may focus on, but are not necessarily limited to, the following areas:

  • Cybersecurity, network attack detection and prevention, and digital forensics;
  • Critical services communication;
  • Quality of service/experience;
  • Quantum communications;
  • Predictions and classifications in network communications;
  • Application of ML and AI in network communication;
  • Innovative information and communication services;
  • Security protocol design and analysis and formal verification;
  • Optimization of communication networks;
  • Advanced technologies and techniques in optical networking;
  • Network and traffic engineering in communication networks.
