Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 February 2020.
Interests: distributed compression in sensor networks; multiple description source coding; multi-user channel coding; group codes for network communication; network capacity problems
Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
This Special Issue on “Multi-User Information Theory in 2017” has led to the publication of high quality papers on several new research directions. The Special Issue received a lot of attention from the community. In 2019, we will continue this Special Issue.
Possible topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
- non-asymptotic performance characterizations
- multi-letter coding techniques
- non-Shannon-type inequalities
- multi-user quantum information and coding
- applications of information theory to new emerging areas such as cybersecurity, privacy, distributed data storage, bioinformatics and learning
- new source models based on big data
- new channel models based on mmWave technology
The goal of this issue is to develop new bridges between information theory and other fields, such as abstract algebra, ergodic theory, quantum physics, theory of random graphs, theory of communication complexity, information geometry and additive combinatorics, and thereby contribute to furthering collaborations between researchers working in these communities.
Prof. Dr. S. Sandeep Pradhan
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. Entropy 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 1600 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.
