Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
The next generation of communications networks such as Internet of Things, cellular networks and vehicular ad hoc networks, are considered as complex systems due to the ever-increasing number of technologies and connected devices. Large scale deployment of these complex systems requires enabling 5G and beyond technologies to facilitate autonomous operations by providing superior communication services and hyper-connectivity for urban and rural applications equally.
In this Special Issue, we are particularly interested in 5G and beyond enabled technologies for large scale complex IoT networks and emerging vertical networks such as transportation, health, smart grid, and smart city, connecting the unconnected systems, supporting the centralized or distributed intelligent decision making in these complex systems, defining new applications and solutions with an IoT prototype and benchmarking the performance with reference to system and consumer requirements.
At the time of organisation of this special issue, the countries around the world have been affected by Covid-19 pandemic. Role of wireless communication technologies has become more important than ever before to respond to the pandemic and facilitate the economies, businesses and citizens. We welcome contributions on 5G technologies and their use case, applications and services to fight with pandemic situation.

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. 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 1800 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.
