Special Issues and Collections in MDPI journals
This Special Issues focuses on fundamental aspects of network information theory and its applications in signal processing and wireless communications. We welcome unpublished contributions related to the future 5G standard for wireless communication systems, as well as on any other applications, such as secrecy and privacy in identification and communication systems, energy-considerations and hypothesis testing in sensor networks, storage and information retrieval in cloud systems, etc.
In this sense, contributions in all areas in network information theory are welcomed. In particular, topics of interest include, but are not restricted to, the following:
- Source and channel coding
- Cooperative networks
- Cloud RANs
- Massive MIMO
- Energy harvesting communication
- Security and privacy
- Cloud storage and computing
- Resource allocation
- Machine learning applications
- Hypothesis testing and statistics
- New directions in network information theory
