Antennas that can operate in different complex environments will be part of every modern wireless communication system, such as 5G, IoT, and radar applications. These new networks require antennas with a high degree of reconfigurability. In order to meet the abovementioned requirements, reconfigurable antennas and advanced phased arrays with adaptive nulling, multiple beams, low sidelobes, as well as different signal processing techniques provide effective solutions. Such kinds of antennas are commonly used in several fields of applications, such as airport surveillance, missile detection, and tracking. Of particular interest for this Special Issue are novelties in the element design and materials, system architecture, array feeding, and array reflection, radiation, and scattering properties. As these research areas have different developmental statuses and trends, it is important to examine the current state of the art and project future research directions. We invite researchers to contribute original papers describing applications and experiences on the emerging trends of reconfigurable antennas for solving different design problems. The purpose of this Special Issue is to publish high-quality research papers as well as review articles addressing recent advances on reconfigurable antennas.

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 1500 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.
