Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

AI has transformed many areas, including that of wireless communication. It has significantly improved the performance of wireless system design, wireless sensing, and wireless security. In collaboration with CyberC 2024, this Special Issue aims to promote discussion on fundamental and practically relevant questions related to the challenges arising from deep learning in wireless communications, sensing, and security. We seek to publish studies pertaining, but not limited to, advances in AI/ML and deep learning in relation to the following:

  • Spectrum/signaling sensing, fusion, decision making, and allocation;
  • Signaling process, PHY/link layer protocols, and optimization;
  • Resource optimization, network, and distributed network computing;
  • Dynamic spectrum access, spectrum sharing, and spectrum management;
  • AI/ML for cognitive radio networks;
  • VNF/SDN (NFV, VIM, VNFs, service function chaining, network slicing, and Open Flow);
  • Quantum communications and network computing resources;
  • Sensor networks, mesh networks, MIMO, and 6G;
  • Edge computing, IoT connectivity, and energy harvesting;
  • Industrial IoT, e.g., manufacturing, logistics, and supply chain;
  • Industry control network, networking theory, and algorithms;
  • Wireless embedded sensor systems, body sensor, smart cities, and security;
  • Cognitive radio and soft defined radio;
  • Future-generation communications and pervasive computing;
  • Peer-to-peer network computing and overlaying networks;
  • Directional antenna and networking;
  • FDMA/OFDMA modulations, synchronization, and power optimization;
  • Security and privacy, attacking models, and confidentiality and security in communications;
  • Services, middleware, and multimedia on wireless networks;
  • QoS, reliability, performance, and communication theory;
  • Wireless network simulations, implementation, and applications;
  • Edge AI for wireless communications, sensing, and security;
  • Intelligent reflection surfaces, semantic communication, unmanned aerial vehicles, satellites, and digital twins;
  • Integrated sensing and communications;
  • Adversarial attacks and defenses on AI-based wireless communication, sensing, and security.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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 submissions that pass pre-check are 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 semimonthly 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 2400 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.
