Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Applications of machine learning in wireless and mobile communications networks have been receiving increasing attention, especially in the new era of big data and IoT, where data mining and data analysis technologies are effective approaches to solving wireless system issues. Artificial intelligence is one of the leading technologies in 5G, beyond 5G, and future 6G networks. Intelligence is endowing the tendency to throw open the capabilities of the 5G networks and the future 6G mobile wireless networks by leveraging the universal infrastructure, open network architectures, software-defined networking, network function virtualization, multi-access edge computing, vehicular network, etc. The implementation of the blockchain and mobile edge computing have become a significant part of the new wireless and mobile communication networks and will help the calculations to be performed as close to the IoT devices as possible.

The main aim of this Special Issue is to provide an overview of the current research on wireless and mobile communication technologies, based on contributions from machine learning, mobile edge computing, blockchain, and other fields of artificial intelligence, including channel modelling, signal estimation and detection, energy efficiency, vehicular communications, and wireless multimedia communications. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Wireless and wireline communications;
  • Beyond 5G & 6G access and core networks;
  • Blockchain services and applications;
  • Artificial intelligence and intelligent systems;
  • Big data analysis;
  • Cloud technologies and applications;
  • Machine learning;
  • Internet of Everything;
  • Autonomous driving and V2X solutions;
  • Next-generation networks;
  • Holographic Communication;
  • Cyber Security;
  • e-Health.

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 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 2000 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.
