Delay- and disruption-tolerant networking (DTN) has been an active research area due to its importance and wide range of countless applications in challenged scenarios and environments. DTNs consist of only mobile nodes, or both fixed nodes and mobile nodes moving around and occasionally coming into each other's proximity. Communication opportunities are usually short and sporadic, thereby making node-to-node communications extremely challenging and resulting in a very slow data dissemination process. Potential DTN applications include but are not limited to interplanetary networks, vehicular networks, networks for emergency response, disaster recovery, military operations, environmental sensing, tracking and monitoring applications, and communications in remote and rural areas and developing countries.
This Special Issue aims at bringing together researchers, academicians, scientists, and students to exchange their ideas, experiences, and latest research results on DTNs and their applications.
The topics of this Special Issue include but are not limited to the following:
- Technologies and standards;
- Architectures, protocols, and algorithms;
- Data management and analytics;
- Network performance;
- Modeling and simulation;
- Prototypes, testbeds, and case studies;
- Security, privacy, and trust;
- Integration with infrastructure-based networks.

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 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 monthly 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 1400 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.
